Not as many changes here, but new characters are invented and given the names "Tom and Nellie Miller"...
The poetry published while he was alive is almost all intact.most, if not all, of Buk's prose and poems have been more or less "edited"
1000 more? Wow! Well, I think you´ve already compared enough for us to say that only the poems published posthumously have been heavily edited (to put it nicely).Any changes I've found so far (during close comparison of about 500 poems) have been minor. Some look like transcription mistakes rather than editing. I still have more than 1000 manuscripts left to compare, so I'll let you know how that pans out when I'm finished. In about 15 years.
On your 'Vote!' list are two collections of poetry that had been published posthumously, Betting on the Muse and The Pleasures of the Damned.The poetry published while he was alive is almost all intact.
Betting on the Muse is okay. It was the first posthumous poetry collection, so I assume it was "edited" when Bukowski was still alive, then published after his death.Betting on the Muse and The Pleasures of the Damned.
I believe there are twenty uncollected poems in The Pleasures of the Damned:I made some statistics on Pleasures Of The Damned. ... Only 19 of the 274 poems are uncollected.
If I remember correctly, a big amount of the manuscripts pictures I "showed" you came from Bone Palace Ballet. And there was systematic change when it came to mentions of alcohol and sex. So the number would probably be higher.But for the following poetry collection, Bone Palace Ballet, we have manuscripts for 22 of the 175 pieces, and half of those differ from the published pieces.
In August this year, when Marina and Locklin and Abel and David have been in Berlin, I addressed the subject of the editing/ changes/ falsifications during Bukowski's lifetime in the talk I held.And this a good 10 years before Bukowski's death...
