A prolific underground writer, Charles Bukowski used his poetry to depict the depravity of urban life and the truths of the downtrodden American society. Being a cult hero, he relied on experience, emotions and imaginations, and used direct language and violent sexual imagery. While the critics found him offensive, a few of them said that Charles satirized the machismo attitude through the routine use of alcohol, sex and violence. He didn’t begin his writing career until the age of thirty-five. He wrote more than 40 books of poetry and the most famous ones are ‘Love is a Dog from Hell’, ‘Ham on Rye’ and ‘The Pleasures of The Damned’. EliteColumn presents the best Charles Bukowski quotes.
