William S. Burroughs
William Burroughs was born on February 5, 1914, in St. Louis, Missouri, the grandson of the inventor of the Burroughs adding machine. After his graduation from Harvard, he lived in Chicago and New York on an income of two hundred dollars a month from his parents. He met Lucien Carr and Allen Ginsberg in New York City around Christmas 1943 shortly after Ginsberg began studying at Columbia, and Burroughs impressed them with his erudition, as well as his sardonic humor and reserved poise. Older than the others in the group, he took on the role of teacher, encouraging Kerouac and Ginsberg in their attempts to write fiction and poetry. Although Burroughs collaborated on a humorous sketch with a classmat, Kells Elvins, at Harvard and completed a short novel written in the style of Dashiell Hammett with Kerouac, both works were rejected by publishers, and Burroughs did not think of himself as a writer. Instead, his search for an identity led him to deliberately seek out a criminal life. In the hope that he would feel at home in a "community of outlaws," Burroughs began buying stolen goods, including morphine Syrettes, and became addicted to morphine. In 1947 he began to live with Joan Vollmer, another member of the group around the Columbia campus, and they had a son William S. Burroughs, Jr. Joan was addicted to Benzedrine, and they moved to New Orleans, Texas, and Mexico City where drugs were more easily obtainable.

WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS • Writer. JG Ballard on William S. Burroughs ArchivedSalon essay about Burroughs' impact, by author JG Ballard,
WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS Writer William Seward Burroughs came from an upper-class background in the midwestern United States, studied at Harvard University, then turned to drugs and crime. In the 1940s he became addicted to heroin and met a crowd from Columbia University that included writer Jack Kerouac and poet Allen Ginsberg . In 1951 a drug-addled Burroughs recklessly shot and killed his wife while in Mexico; he fled and wound up in Tangiers. In 1953 Ginsberg helped Burroughs publish Junky , an autobiographical depiction of drug addiction, and in 1959 Burroughs published Naked Lunch . Burroughs became an underground celebrity, a literary guru and pop culture philosopher who continued to write and record until his death.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback William (Seward) Burroughs (1914-1997) American writer of experimental novels, who lived long times in Mexico City, Tanger, Paris, and London. Burroughs's homosexual themes in THE NAKED LUNCH (1959) and the frankness with which he dealt with his own experiences as a drug addict sparkled the last major obscenity trial in U.S., but won him a following among writers, musicians, and film makers. Burroughs produced the bulk of his writing after he moved to London and took an apomorphine cure under the direction of Dr John Dent. "We have lunch on the terrace of his mountain house. A heavily wooded garden with pools and paths stretches down to a cliff over the sea. Lunch is turbot in cream sauce, grouse, wild asparagrass, peaches in wine. Quite a change from the grey cafeteria food I have been subjected to in Western cities where I pass myself off as one of the faceless apathetic citizens searched and questioned by the police on every corner, set upon by brazen muggers, stumbling home to my burglarized apartment to find the narcotics squad going through my medicine chest again." (from The Wild Boys William S. Burroughs was born in St. Louis, Mo. into a successful business family. His mother was a direct descendant of Robert E. Lee, his grandfather the inventor of the Burroughs adding machine. The Burroughs Corporation ultimately merged with the Sperry Corporation to create Unisys. After he graduated in English literature from Harvard University in 1936, he traveled in Europe, where he studied medicine in Venice for a year. He worked for an advertising agency in New York City and joined the army. Burroughs was trained as a glider pilot, but was discharged as unfit for service in 1942. Rejecting his background, Burroughs plunged into an alternative life-style that included drugs, odd jobs, and bisexuality. While working in the shipyards of New York, he became addicted to heroin, or what he called Opium Jones, G(od's) O(wn) (Medicine).

Scholars Index Gentleman Junkie : The Life and Legacy of William S. Burroughs by Graham Caveney There have been several solid conventional biographies of William S. Burroughs (1914-1997), and this imaginative consideration of his "life and legacy" does not seek to replace them. Instead, British scholar Graham Caveney concentrates on Burroughs as a cultural phenomenon whose unsettling ability to depict personal degradation with modernist detachment first awed contemporaries in the beat generation and continued through the 1990s to inspire artists as diverse as grunge rocker Kurt Cobain, painter Keith Haring, and film director David Cronenberg.

Texts from Levi Asher Literary Kicks
William Seward Burroughs was the grandson of the founder of the Burroughs Adding Machine company, which evolved into the Burroughs Corporation and not too long ago merged with Sperry Univac to form Unisys. (I could hyperlink this to comp.ancient.mainframes or something, but I think I'll skip this link). Burroughs grew up in St. Louis, where his upper-class midwestern background did not suit his tastes. A bookworm with strong homoerotic urges, a fascination with guns and crime and a natural inclination to break every rule he could find, there seemed to be no way Burroughs could ever fit into normal society. His parents seemed to accept this, and after he graduated from Harvard they continued to support him financially as he experimented with various lifestyles. In his early thirties he traveled to New York and decided to pursue freedom by joining the city's gangster underworld. He became a heroin addict quite intentionally, in the process meeting the prototypical junkie drifter and future Beat hero Herbert Huncke. His St. Louis friends David Kammerer and Lucien Carr introduced him to a crowd of crazed young nonconformists studying at Columbia University, including Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Burroughs' future common-law wife, Joan Vollmer Adams. He was older than them, but they were impressed by his obvious intelligence and worldly cynicism. Kerouac described him as 'Tall, 6 foot 1, strange, inscrutable because ordinary looking (scrutable), like a shy bank clerk with a patrician thinlipped cold bluelipped face.'

Tutto è permesso" Lettere dello Yage , Milano, Sugar, 1967; pp. 100-101). "Burroughs conosce bene la società borghese alla quale si è sottratto in modo così decisivo. E' figlio del famoso Burroughs progettista e produttore di macchine da calcolo e contabili, così passò un'infanzia felice, o per lo meno economicamente felice, a Saint Louis. La depressione intaccò la situazione economica della sua famiglia, ma non fino alla rovina; e infatti egli continuò regolarmente i suoi studi. Ancora per il decennio che seguì la depressione continuò a vivere inserito nella società; studiava seriamente poesia e etnologia, e all'università di Harvard si laureò in letteratura inglese con una tesi in antropologia. Nella scia di tanti espatriati americani andò a trascorrere un anno in Europa; ma nel 1936 si ritrovò in America, con un assegno mensile di centocinquanta dollari che gli veniva dall'eredità paterna e il peso di ventidue anni di angosce e di andirivieni psicilogici che né la rispettabilità della sua famiglia né l'ottimismo del New Deal americano né gli psicanalisti nascenti riuscirono a risolvere.
