The Last Night of the Earth Poems the Last Night of the Earth Poems (Paperback)
"This particular collection includes my very favorite of Bukowski's poems, the beautiful, complex "The Bluebird," (which I am physically unable to read without tearing up) along with so many other wonderful arrangements of words I couldn't name them all. I've always loved Hank Chinaski and his gritty, rough words with beautiful shining moments buried in them." - Emily <<<Page 4— From The BookPeople 100 (Page 5)
Poems deal with writing, death and immortality, literature, city life, illness, war, and the past.
About the Author
Charles Bukowski (1920 1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambiance of his home city of Los Angeles. He published his first story at twenty-four and began writing poetry at thirty-five, publishing extensively in small literary magazines and small presses from the early 1940s through the early 90s. The King of the Underground, he remained loyal to those small press editors who had first championed his work. During his life he wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels, publishing over sixty books.
