Prolific and influential 20th-century poet, short story writer, and novelist
His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambiance of his home city of Los Angeles. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over 60 books. Bukowski published extensively in small literary magazines and with small presses beginning in the early s and continuing on through the early s. As noted by one reviewer, "Bukowski continued to be, thanks to his antics and deliberate clownish performances, the king of the underground and the epitome of the littles in the ensuing decades, stressing his loyalty to those small press editors who had first championed his work and consolidating his presence in new ventures such as the New York Quarterly , Chiron Review , or Slipstream. In Time called Bukowski a "laureate of American lowlife".

If you were to browse the poetry section of any large bookstore, you would probably find a book or two by each of those critically esteemed, prize-winning poets. Nowhere to be found in the canonizing Norton anthology, however, is the man who occupies the most shelf space of any American poet: Charles Bukowski. Bukowski himself, and his many, many readers, would not have it any other way. He is one of those writers whom each new reader discovers with a transgressive thrill. Fittingly, for a poet whose reputation was made in ephemeral underground journals, it is on the Internet that the Bukowski cult finds its most florid expression. On Amazon.
