History Of Ordinary Madness
Story collection published in 1967, work?cult? in order more of one the generation and perhaps most meaningful than Bukowski. It, like Hemingway, Faulkner, Fante and some other represents with crudezza of images and semplicità of writing an example of as the letteretura American is various from all the others. It conserve in the immediacy of the descriptions that appear like ?photograms? shown one after the other with one tightening conseguenzialità, and in the daily, autobiographic matter that, in the event of our author, s'immerge often in the trivialità and the visceralità of one life randagia, its distintive characteristics.
the subtitle it of the collection: ?Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions?, us catapult without infingimenti in the bukowskiano universe. It, the protagonist, that he is the same author, has 50 years, little dollars in pocket, jobs always prebeloveds, often lives in taverns from four moneiens and loves to pass the days to the race of the horses, to sbronzarsi or, pre-eminent attvità, trying one woman with which making sex. In its to wander from ?tramp?, from ?bankrupt?, in its living the sexuality in free and sexual way is but a spiritual and social protest at the same time. E' the man who turned against the falsità and the hypocrisy of the own relationship with the similar ones and against a society that behind lustrini and the make-ups of the ?miracle American? hides still many dark sides, unsolved racisms, new colonialiste wars to the doors. But, all this, little interests to our Buk that as an example, in the story ?Six inches?, imagines to become thin to the point from ridursi to the stature of six inches and therefore to be able to sguazzare like a impudico Pollicino between large tette and the hairs of the pube of its woman, to succeed in trafugare 23 mila dollars from one safe, thanks to its small dimension, and spassarsela for a P2o to the Sunset Motel from which admiring fantastic hills of Holliwood. Insomma, to read quest storys is beneficial, is a bath in free waters of the living without masters, of the unbridled and irriverente sex more, of the love for the poetry and the whiskey. The simple, visceral language as vomito, sometimes made of long written periods of jet, without preoccuparsi of punctuations or grammaticali rules, will guide you in atmospheres of an America sbronza and ?on the road? that it lives to the day with its thousand trades and that still it knows to laugh of if same.
