At most. ” He would not even turn his head. I yelled it louder. He would not look our way. On 3 November 1998, Bremser died. ” Even though he shared publications, readings, and the occasional social gathering with prominent Beat figures, he set himself apart from his literary contemporaries. As he told the editor of Paris Metro in 1978, “I’m not interested in this bohemian, Greenwich Village, Parisian bullshit. ” Yet we can still find parallels between his work and that of jack kerouac and allen ginsberg in their use of autobiographical fiction as a tool for exposing and examining reality.

Dreams are a central source of creativity for many of the Beat writers (william s. burroughs includes selections from his dreams in most of his novels). For Kerouac, the recording of dreams is a logical extension of his theory of spontaneous prose. ” The book is thus far from crafted prose. It is also Kerouac’s most unguarded prose, revealing potentially embarrassing aspects of his inmost personality. The dreams here are the raw material for such books as doctor sax, The subterraneans, maggie cassidy, and desolation angels, showing how close Kerouac’s subconscious is to the surface in his spontaneous prose.

Bremser became one of bob dylan’s favorite poets (there is a quick glimpse of Bremser in Martin Scorsese’s No Direction Home [2005]), and mention of him can be found in the liner notes to Dylan’s The Times They Are A-Changin’. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, on February 22, 1934, to a mother who worked inspecting condoms and a father who supposedly played piano on the ship Orizaba, from which the poet Hart Crane suicidally jumped in April 1932, Bremser joined the United States Air Force (like amiri baraka/leroi Jones later did) in 1951 to get some discipline.
