epub ☆ The Naked Lunch ô William S. Burroughs Tastic and the realistic with his own unmistakable vision and voice Burroughs has created a uniue masterpiece that is a classic of twentieth century ficti Glenn Russell Speak to us straight about your Lunch that’s bareTwisted dirty and anything but fairYour words like needles sticking in our veinsAs you write of dopefiends coke bugs and dames William S Burroughs Rube the word we use in this world is junkYou’ll hear straight without funny stuff or funkRead the damn book; I have nothing to addFor embellishing perfection has never been a fadThis is a one of a kind novel Couldn't help myself with the Alexander Pope style heroic couplets since Burroughs is at the extreme opposite end of the literary spectrum from the great Alexander Pope and that's understatement

I didn’t like how every fourth phrase seemed to be about shit or jism or asses or toothless mouths the subject will come at his whistle shit on the floor if he but say Open Sesame I thought the extreme homoeroticism was gruesome and not very erotic and it actually made me feel rather homophobic – and this is coming from a bonafide cocksucker mugwump jismBut the third try worked like a charm to turn a massacre into a sex orgy Maybe I just needed to grow into the novel and not take its challenging ways so personally a bubbly thick stagnant sound a sound you could smell The writing became amazing to me – overindulgent obviously but also masterful profound even in its hair raising descriptive passages its deadpan dialogue its drooling emphasis on bodily functions decay death degradation the subject will come at his whistle shit on the floor if he but say Open Sesame Its paranoia was no longer oppressive – if anything it was freeing mugwump jism Naked Lunch’s ability to convey not just the darkness but the strangeness and black humor at the heart of both addiction and the various possible and existing forms of societal control became fascinating to turn a massacre into a sex orgy The radical changes in perspective the decentralized plot and obliue narrative all the grotesue taboo fantasias suddenly felt mordantly playful and well “naked” in their need to convey a state of mind a world view a way of looking at the systems of the world all of that actually became inspirational in both the challenge of its intent and the radical nature of its result; and so the subject will come at his whistle shit on the floor if he but say Open Sesame

William S. Burroughs ô The Naked Lunch book

The Naked LunchNterzone a nightmarish modern urban wasteland in which the forces of good and evil vie for control of the individual and all of humanity By mixing the fan So basically the meaningless drivel of the very first circuit boi? Seriously? Maybe I would have liked it better if I weren't already sick to death of all the hallucinatory narratives this book spawned This is a structure that needed to be created only once to get the bastard over with and properly buriedDrug narratives are always only autobiographies obsessed with the author's secret obscene wishes and inevitably Neanderthal politics They are the literary euivalent of a frotteur on the subway recounting an especially long and boring dreamAs a dear friend once told me Shut the fuck up you stupid stoner
