From hipster to so-called Godfather of Punk, William Burroughs has lived a controversial life as a leading member burrouvhs the Beat Generation and a daring writer of psychedelic literary experiments, but, when he reached his seventieth birthday init was almost as if he had been overtaken by respectability.

La Maquina Blanda : William S Burroughs :

Burroughs was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in as the grandson of the man who invented the adding machine and a descendant of Robert E.

Lee of Civil War fame. He attended Harvard University.

Later while living a bohemian life in association with such Beat writers as Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, Burroughs became addicted to morphine and under the pseudonym William Lee published his first novel, Junkie, in as half of an Ace Double Books paperback. The novel escaped critical notice but may be seen now as the blands of his later fiction with its introduction of many of the themes, settings, characters, lz amoral postures that became prominent with Naked Lunch and its successors.


Refused by the American publishers to whom Burroughs submitted the manuscript, Naked Lunch first appeared in Paris under the Olympia Press imprint inthe same year that Burroughs was permanently cured of his addiction. Burroughs’s raw subject matter and seeming lack of discipline have alienated some burrouyhs the more academic and genteel literary critics.

Naked Lunch was followed by three additional novels about the Nova crime syndicate-The Soft MachineThe Ticket That Explodedand Nova Expresswhich make use of overlapping characters and motifs.

With The Wild Boys ofBurroughs began to develop a new blsnda more accessible to the general reader.

Although Cities of the Red Night received mixed reviews, it was praised by such Burroughs experts as Jennie Skerl and Robert Burkholder as perhaps the best of his more recent novels. Of The Place of Dead Roads is true to Burroughs’s various obsessions with guns, homosexuality, and the terror produced by people who are addicted to power and control.


Today much of the psychedelic effect of Burroughs’s fiction appears to be an illusion that masks rather deliberate methods of composition.

These include “cut-out” techniques, pastiche, and the deliberate trying-out of styles derived from popular fiction genres to create literary montages that owe as much to fantasy and science as to the surrealism of avant-garde literature.
