One of Bukowski’s best collections, with many poems not mockinbbird obtainable elsewhere. One of the books put edited and released by John Martin while the author bukiwski alive and kicking literally.

One person found this helpful. Not quite his best collection. Feels uneven and has a bit too many poems where he attempts to stray from his true formula. Bukowski what else is there to say? This was a replacement for one I had that someone borrowed and didn’t return. I guess I’m responsible for others enjoying Bukowski. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This was my first foray into Bukowski’s work and I liked this collection of poems a lot.

Charles Bukowski – Mockingbird Wish Me Luck | Review

A good variety of poems that seem to represent his style well. Bukowski makes the ugly absolutely beautiful. And this is a great collection of great poems. Love it to bits, gets me through lots of days at school.

Robin Friedman Top Contributor: Bukoweki Bukowski – had a gift for creating evocative titles, including the title for his collection of poetry, “Mockingbird Wish Me Luck”. The title is apt.

It derives from a beautiful poem, one of Bukowski’s finest, “Mockingbird”. I read Bukowski’s poem as a parable on death and loss and cruelty. During the summer, a mockingbird has been following and taunting a cat. Not every poem in this volume is as effective as “Mockingbird.

Mockingbird Wish Me Luck by Charles Bukowski

Bukowski wrote in the language of common speech, punchy and colloquial. At its best, his writing has passion, rawness, a tough vulgarity, and, frequently a sardonic humor. His poetry tends to be autobiographical, but he also writes short scenes and narratives, such as “Mockingbird. The themes of his poems are frequently dark, including loneliness, death, suicide, and aging. The poems in the latter part of the volume begin to take a more positive, mellower tone, as Bukowski writes of his love for his wife and for his young daughter.

Besides “Mockingbird,” the poems I enjoyed in this volume include “the last days of the suicide kid”, Bukowski’s reflections on growing old, “My friend William”, a story of a friend who seemingly had attained success in his career and in his marriage, “consummation of grief”, in which Bukowski writes that “I was born to hustle roses down the avenue of the dead”, the poem “he wrote in lonely blood”, Bukowski’s tribute to his fellow California poet Robinson Jeffers, “a sound in the brush”, a story of a casualty of war, “american matador”, on the theme of sex and death, and, on, one of Bukowski’s preoccupations, “I saw an old-fashioned whore today”.


The poems I have mentioned show the qualities of Bukowski, the toughness and grit, that will be familiar to most of his readers. I want to conclude with a poem by Bukowski that shows a part of him that may be less familiar. This poem, “marina” is written to his young daughter. An old man, battle-wrecked, emerges from his chair and she looks at me but only sees love, ha! And I become quick with the world and love right back just like I was meant to do.

Bukowski had his sentimental and tender side that he usually kept carefully hidden.

This collection will appeal to lovers of the “Poet of Skid Row”. See all 14 reviews.
