Présentation de l'éditeur

First published in 1977, Love Is a Dog from Hell is a collection of Bukowski's poetry from the mid-seventies. A classic in the Bukowski canon, Love Is a Dog from Hell is a raw, lyrical, exploration of the exigencies, heartbreaks, and limits of love.

Biographie de l'auteur

Charles Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.

On savait Bukowski très prolifique, ces poèmes sur trois années en sont la preuve et on pourrait croire que le vieux Buk a vécu plusieurs vies. En tous cas, ils sont encore plus trash, encore plus directs et encore plus touchants que les contes et autres nouvelles, peut-être parce que quotidien et fantasmes s'y mélangent. Je prèfère la version en anglais, qui se lit quand même facilement et conserve la richesse des poèmes.

In terms of delivery etc.: all OK. In terms of the content: I like this book, not all, but some of the poems are really profound although easy to reach for a newcomer in poetry

Charles Bukowski est un de mes poètes préférés, son style à la fois brutal et mélancolique ne peut laisser personne de glace.

une belle plongée dans ses poèmes.

HASH(0x9f08c4f8) étoiles sur 5 LOVE...hearts and flowers need not apply. 27 décembre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Take off the rose-colored glasses...return your seats to their upright your head between your knees and prepare for a crash landing. Don't get me wrong: this book is not a diatribe condemning love. We've all read and loved our Byron, but now it's time to step through the looking glass, children. Love may "walk in beauty like the night" but, "Love, Bukowski Style"...asks you to remember that "the night" isn't the best venue for clarity of vision. Bukowski speaks to that other side of love...vitriolic, soul-destroying, perverted, barbaric and insane. All, who have ever loved, will find the words for their feelings...the feelings for their lack of Bukowski's auto-Eros-dissection. Why would I suggest you read this volume of poetry? Why would anyone want to subject themself to such unpleasantries? What kind of sadist am I, that I would ask you to deliberately subject yourself to the pain of love? To know love, is to know the pain of love. Yet for all the pain inherent in love, we seek love again and again. Nothing exercises our gifts of hope and faith more strenuously. Love may be a "dog from hell" to Bukowski, but he is still unable to disguise his want, his need and his hope for more love. Bukowski - alcoholic, misanthrope, barbarian, gutter rat - who writes of love and can still say..."It softens a man."

HASH(0x9f07f438) étoiles sur 5 One of his best 13 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have the paperback, and nearly half the corners of the pages are folded down because I read them once a month. Like all volumes of poetry, there are good ones and mediocre ones, but overall it's honest, painful, and beautiful. Rather than drone on, I'll give you a sample, from one of my favorites of this volume:
alone with everybody
the flesh covers the bone_ and they put a mind_ in there and_ sometimes a soul,_ and the women break_ vases against the walls_ and the men drink too_ much_ and nobody ever finds the_ one_ but they keep_ looking_ crawling in and out_ of beds._ flesh covers_ the bone and the_ flesh searches_ for more than_ flesh._
there's no chance_ at all:_ we are all trapped_ by a singular_ fate._
nobody ever finds_ the one._
the city dumps fill_ the junkyards fill_ the madhouses fill_ the hospitals fill_ the graveyards fill_ nothing else_ fills.
P.S. "How to be a great writer" is honest, and hilarious, if it weren't for the language, I'd have left that one to convince you to buy this.

HASH(0x9f07f45c) étoiles sur 5 A Great Collection -- from a Great Poet! 8 janvier 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
One of the most renowned poets of the 20th Century came not from the Academia but rather from the dive bars in Los Angeles. Charles Bukowski began to unleash his gutteral cry in the mid-50's. By the time he died of Leukemia in 1994, he was approaching legend status.
Bukowski was the king of skid row poets. He was a drunk living in flophouses, working in factories, fighting, cursing etc. He wrote in a raw, hard hitting style. There is no effort to hide the warts and blemishes here. He wrote in a savagely frank manner on his life and the society that revolved around him.
He eventually became famous enough to befriend Hollywood types like Sean Penn. He wrote a screenplay called "Barfly" which starred Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway. It was partially autobiographical.
Bukowski produced many thick volumes of poetry for the Black Sparrow Press. One of my favorites is "Love Is A Dog From Hell". This includes poems that were written from 1974 through 1977. It fills up over 300 pages. Bukowski was a prolific poet in spite his personal problems with booze and gambling.
His poetry will not be for everyone. He is dirty, crude and has an almost absolute reliance on free verse. He is pretty graphic when it comes to sex and booze. . Poem titles include "sex pot", "moaning and groaning", "The Six Foot Goddess", "problems about the other woman", etc. Several poem titles wouldn't even make it past the epinions filter.
Bukowski goes straight for the jugular. This is not poetry for the meek at heart. He is, however, very funny and very direct. Some of the poems will resonate with near brilliance. Bukowski did have the ability to cut some very clean lines. At times, he can be deceptively clever. There is even rare poignancy. "One for old snaggletooth" is a mean title but pays tribute to his ex-wife: "she has hurt fewer people/than anyone I know,/and if you look at it like that,/well,/she has created a better world/she has won."
A poem like "quiet clean girls in gingham dresses" expresses a longing for a more settled life. He only knows prostitutes, pill poppers and neurotic women but he holds out hope for finding someone better. It concludes: "I know she exists/but where is she on this earth/as the wh***s keep finding me?"
Toilets, hookers, race tracks and roaches exist in this world, newspapers are blankets and mice eat moldy bread on the table, fist fights occur in alleys outside bars. It is not for everyone but adventurous readers who want direct, raw emotional intensity may greatly enjoy this verse. Two other quick Amazon picks are the collected poems of Mark Strand and The Losers' Club by Richard Perez

HASH(0x9f045318) étoiles sur 5 First-timers for Bukowski, this one is mediocre. 18 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book may show Bukowski at his most sensationalistic, but it hardly contains his best writing. The booze, women, and poverty may be there, but the imagination is almost wholly absent. Many poems seem more like afterthoughts or random musings than truly completed works. There are a handful of great offerings here ("Alone with Everybody," "Prayer in Bad Weather," "One for the Shoeshine Man"), but much stronger poems in the same vein are found in the author's Mockingbird Wish Me Luck and Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame. Some of his best work is in the novel, Ham On Rye. Those who want to know just how compelling Bukowski can be should invest in those books.

HASH(0xa04cd0f0) étoiles sur 5 Hell ain't so bad... 23 avril 2009
Par tick tock - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Reeling from an unhappy love affair, I picked up a copy of this book after wandering the aisles of a book store one day in the mid-eighties. I guess the title spoke to my situation, but what I found inside was more than enough to sustain me... that is, until the next pair of legs walked by. Since then, I've nurtured a love for almost everything the man has written. Bukowski tells it straight, for better or worse, and often we see the writer himself in the cross-hairs more than anyone else.
