Readers' Comments on Wolf Larsen's Writing
"...the ramblings of a narcissistic, self-obsessed deranged mind."
"i think this is probably the coolest thing i've ever read."
"I don't think I've ever come across any writer this obsessed with his own genitals."
– Beergood on book and reader.com commenting on Wolf Larsen's poem Canto Two
"After trudging through the depths of your imagination, I'm so thankful to come out alive!"
"It's sort of like some freaky blender experiment where a sonnet was put into veryfastmixingdevice with a porno backtrack along with an episode of South Park. Liquidize for 5 minutes and voila!"
"Might I suggest you lay off the glue sniffing, Wolf….."
"This is amazing!!!!!!! A love poem for the MDMA Generation!"
“apocalyptic dream sequences”
“weird beyond explanation”
"I think I'm not on the right kind of drugs to read this."
"Mr. Wolf, this is really too in your face (yes, your FACE) to be taken seriously. You are heavily into the genitals of many species, it seems. I just can't relate."
"Let's see – its pointless, meaningless and vulgar, not to mention self-absorbed, narcissistic, arrogant and overwheening oh yes and dangerously self-deluded with regards to its own brilliance? I can read wittier vulgarities on the back of a public restroom door."
The most bizarre novel ever written?
"I like how you challenge the strangeness of sameness"
"It's like Kurt Vonnegut on ecstasy with a Xanax chaser."
" ...good read, I always follow your posts..."
"Kid's don't try this at home. Poetry will drive you crazy. What do you call a female transvestite? Ms., Mr., or Sir?
– Harry Hill on Literotica said regarding Wolf Larsen's Canto 11
"This smacks of a rather demented mix of William Burroughs, Bennet....oh... and Fritz the cat.!"
– Ignatius on Algonquin's Table, 2013
"I actually went and read two of Wolf's poetry books--Eulogy for the Human Race and Yippee!
"I just don't understand you. Everything you write is so gratuitously ... vulgar... It's borderline offensive."
Wolf Larsen answered the above critic in the following manner:
"Wolf, I hate censorship too. I've been warned several times and banned twice for my erotic stories. To be honest, I'm curious to read an erotic piece from you that does not mention genitals. I think you can do it better than what you've been doing now. The most erotic piece of literature to me is the one that looks at a fruit like a vagina and looks at a vagina like a fruit."
– Miyako73 on online literature, 2012
Wolf Larsen responded:
Wolf responded to a different critic complaining about "shock value":
"I don't know if it's the wine or what, but I actually feel quite energized after reading this.
"wap and collapse? Poop and penis clouds? fucking with sunlight. Dang. Makes me smile."
"I liked this man...you are giving William a run for his money for sure.
In response to a moderator on fictionpost.com in an argument over an excerpt of Wolf's novel Pricks, Cunts, & Motherfuckers posted on fictionpost.com Wolf Larsen said:
I'm sure that being a moderator is not always pleasant. However, freedom of speech is not always pleasant, and freedom of speech is very important in literature and in all the arts.
In fact, there are many things in life that are unpleasant. It's very important that writers should have the freedom to write about unpleasant things without watering down the writing to make it acceptable for "polite society". It is my opinion that "polite society" is the enemy of good literature. The censorship imposed by "polite society" has been very damaging to the literary world.
Have a nice day."

Dear Hub pages management/moderator(s) from Wolf Larsen:
"Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient to the general body of people…"
Recently a post of mine was deleted by the hub pages management. This post was entitled after my novel Pricks, Cunts, and Motherfuckers. In addition, my posting privileges on Hub pages was revoked. I posted this piece as an act of free speech.
I read with disgust the comments by some of the other posters who like a McCarthyite lynch mob called for the censorship of this piece. So what if the majority did not like Pricks, Cunts, and Motherfuckers. The moderator should have the courage to stand up for free speech for all writers. The list of writers who have been victims of censorship is endless. Down with censorship! Defend freedom of speech! I request that my post Pricks, Cunts, and Motherfuckers be restored in the name of free speech. And in the name of free speech I also request that my posting privileges be reinstated.
I would also like to praise the courage of those posters who had the decency to stand up for freedom of speech.
It has been my opinion that for quite some time there has been too much censorship in the literary world. It is absolutely hypocritical for people to defend freedom of speech in theory, and then to stomp upon those who have the nerve to practice freedom of speech in practice.
I challenge the moderators of hub pages to reinstate my posting privileges and to debate this matter openly on hub pages.
(The moderators of hub pages never agreed to publicly debate Wolf Larsen on this matter of censorship.

"I have always LOVED your website... and I must say, you are an observer of life at it's best and worst... Your words catalogue existence and you do not discriminate and that is the way it should be done, when it is to be done correctly anyway...
I see/hear a little Hunter S Thompson in you, a bit of Burroughs, Some Genet, some Baudelaire, a little Bataille, some Kerouac, a big heaping tablespoon of Bukowski and yet... yet more than anything else, and better by far.
You... are like you!...
... You're just... damn ... brilliant Wolf
Undeniably and unabashedly brilliant!
More people need to see that video! I like that it is: raw, real, very true and honest to a beautiful fault.
I won't post the link here... that is for you to do and not my place... But I really wish you would. It's fantastic."
– Poppy on postpoems.org
"A really incredible account. I loved this, even though I haven't lived through any of it. Your ability to boil life down to its often horrible base elements almost reminds me of how Hemingway would see the world today."
– fhmcateer of postpoem.org
"I read this and immediately thought ‘Who is the literary equivalent of Seth Putnam."
– Frank Taz in response to a Wolf Larsen interview on html giant interview
(Seth Putnam is the punk rocker)
–DeaDgod in response to a Wolf Larsen interview on html giant interview
(After reading this post Wolf Larsen began considering an independent candidacy for president of the USA. Wolf ran for president in 2012. He was probably the most unfamous candidate in American history.)
"I wish I could....Wait, no, never mind such idiocies and flamboyant fancies! We must lynch this man before his plague, some call writing, spreads it's cantagion across the globe. We would have a epidemic worse then the current "Texting Grammar"! His overbearing style is a abomination to the vestal nature of the word. I do declare that an angry mob be formed in hopes that the end result will be the death of one: Larsen, Wolf.
Viva La Lynching!!!!!!!!!
P.S. That is disdain and contempt you smell."
– Iconoclast on dark form.com, 2010
"I love your brain... I would love to find a John Malcovitch sized little door to crawl through and sit in there with a cocktail and a smoke... and just enjoy.
You're awesome wolf...
A perfect testament to the fucked up insanity that is todays America!"
– Poppy on postpoemes.org June 2011
"More amphetamine-driven than weed-ridden, this slams into your head with the force of an over-loaded supermarket trolley. You use some beautiful, edgy images and world-play to imbue a supermarket with the qulaity of a padded cell. Your narrative voice is strong and enagaging, totally consuming his/her environment.
This was a great read. I look forward to reading more.
– Commenting on an excerpt from the Wolf's novel Slam! Boom! Crash! on spoiled ink.com, 2010
"Is there such as thing as a roller coaster ride around a supermarket? This is a story for anyone who could imagine such a question. This oozes 60s psychedelic sensibilities and glories in some fast-paced scene shifting delivered in hyperbolic prose.
I thoroughly enjoyed your wor(k)d play even if the tone becomes uneven in places - better dazzling pyrotechnics arcing overhead than monochrome sparklers clutched in mittens.
Your central character is credible and packs in enough wry observation to reach even the most closeted reader.
Please post more work. This was a pleasure to read."
– Another commentator on spoiled ink.com, 2010
The following is a poem by a commentator mocking Wolf Larsen's poem "I Am the Poet":
"Gritty New Yawk Style Tribute to Wolf Larsen
I am not just a poet
I am the poet
I throw my poetry
at the skies and bark
like a dog on ecstasy
I fling my poetry at the trees
and the trees fall over
and squash German tourists
If a tree falls over in a forest
and nobody hears it
I hear it
I am not a nobody
I am the poet
I piss my poetry
and create poetic puddles
I crap out poetry
onto canvass and howl
like a wolf on heroin
I spit poetry
in your face
like a llama
is my name
and arson is my game
I set fire to my poetry
and throw the ashes to the sky
like the legendary phoenix
I am the poet
The best damn poet
in the universe
I created the universe
I am the moon, the sun and
I am mount everest
and I am every bagel in New York
I'm Zeus and I'm censored
on prune juice
and I'm Un-Alaska
I am the poet
I am the poet
I am THE poet
The poet, I am.
I AM THE POET!"
– Foxo at the student room forum. The student room forum later banned Wolf Larsen.
"MOTHER OF GOD THAT IS THE BEST SHIT I'VE EVER READ!! .. not literally, but WOW. That's some tripy shit.. I'll check your others out.. that poem right there is a maaaaaaasterpiece"
– AmenOra at poem.zone commenting on Wolf's poem "Sculptures of Pleasure"
"the only part i liked was ‘by wolf larsen’ because thats a badass name
and "that’s why everyone tied nooses around their necks and started jumping"
was an amusing line
but everything else, i hated"
– angel.white at poem.zone, 2010 also commenting on the poem "Sculptures of Pleasure"
"Dear Mr. Larsen,
"Do you hear the people sing singing the songs of angry men it is the music of the people who will not be slaves again!"
– Miss Tolstoy on book and reader.com
“i'm curious as to why you'd choose one of the most dastardly villains in literature for you pseudonym... care to share?”
– asked by mammamaia at writing forums.com
At zefrank forums dddrum said when defending Wolf Larsen's writing against the dismissive comments of another poster named "Coffee":
"Coffee, you poor, myopic Philistine. Do you not see? This man is a visionary! He is a subversive wordgod, who has lain bare the bleak matrix of the doomed universe. Well, maybe not the actual bleak matrix, but dollars to doughnuts, he has lain bare somewhere, I guarandamntee ya.
I mean, O ye sick caffeinated freak, that in my hummable estimation, Mister Wolf Larson is the love child of James Joyce and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, if Ferlinghetti were a fertile-wombed woman named Joyce James, whose pendulous breasts became cabinets, and her teeth became paintings, and the cemetery city became an endlessly morphing Sally Cruikshank cartoon, only without any of the humor.
I tell you some kinda what, Senor Mountain-Grown Beverage, you dismiss this man at your peril. I have seen the fu!ture, and! it!'s pep!pered! with ex!clamat!on mark$!!!!!!!!!!! ? I have been to the website, and it is absoloot!ly ass-packed with delirious free verse, every example of which seems to include tall buildings bending over sidewalks littered with corpses. Larson's battle cry is clear: BETTER SANITATION! FIRMER BUILDINGS! (Oh yeah, and apparently, MANKIND, KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE! ...but I don't wanna read too much into it. Poetry is subjective, after all.)
The website also offers works written for the stage and screen, offered up with the same hysterical tone that we Larsonites have come to crave, and having craven, crave more of. Which. Then, like a big glob of luscious butter cream icing on top of the bratwurst, there are the novels. Novels they may be, but these slabs of raw fiction have been carved from the author's rich and colorful life experience, and are virtually reeking with elan. Make that literally. No, I mean it... they reek. You will rub your eyes in disbelief at the rugged account of life on an Alaskan fishing trawler, in which he describes one of his co-workers as, "the most cuddly looking sweet sounding guy in the Bering Sea." I crap you not. Check out Larson's travel book, Travel Around The World? Why Not?! Goggle gormlessly at such commentary as, "That's a great idea! Today I'll go to China!" and, " 'Having money is cool,' I thought. 'Yippeeeeee!' " Just wait. Visit the website, and I promise that you too, will become a rabid Larsonion.
Get on board, ZeBoarders! CRY WOLF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Another Ode to Wolf Larsen by Foxo in the student room forum:
"the moon and the sun fight each other and the moon loses and melts liKe a bAll of cHeEse and then everyone is dying with the sun and the AIDS and the poetry flows and the sea is calm and the people aRe not CALM and suddenly everything STOPS.
i crap on Buckingham Palace doorstep then wipe my ass with an Alfred Lord Tennyson poem and then i scream AIDS SYPHILIS CHLAMYDIA oh god oh god there is no god then George Bush jumps off the Empire State and Osama Bin Laden does the Macarena and suddenly suddenly suddenly suddenly i decide to travel to Australia and drink some cheap shiraz and the moon re-appears and the sun says “hello” and everything is totally mellow and i dive in the Australian sea and i hook a used condom in my hand and sewage floats everywhere and i smile and the sea is not calm and the poet ponders when the day will come that we will have to eat cockroaches and i urinate in the sea and you drink the water AIDS SYPHILIS CHLAMYDIA kill feminists and republicans and black extremists and klansmen and democrats and bad poets and EVERY CRITIC or should I say critter? and suddenly everyone dances like puppets on strings and a sheep goes bah and the poet ponders as he masturbates on a cloud.
– Foxo of student room forum
“…it reads like a series of run on sentences and came quite close to destroying my brain”
– Aarin of megatokyo forums commenting on a Wolf Larsen poem
"Anyone should be able to feel and imagine what Wolf Larsen wrote. I felt it to the extent that the neurons in my brain started breaking the speed of light barrier and each and every single cell of my body felt the infinite power that is so very well preserved in the words which refuse to stop radiating the limitless energy that this poem is so full of. Thanks for such a great poem."
– Daredreamer (senior member) of daredreamer website board commenting on the "I am the Poet" Poem
"Wolf! who is your muse? Your work reminds me of the Book of Revelation - mysterious, dark, frightening and powerful."
– pousterious on Wolf's sexy transvestite poem
"Wolflarsen, Wow,Wow,Wow! You write words, as Picasso painted pictures. Wonderfully, zany, outrageous, off-the-chart, works of art.
I was puzzled, exhilarated, non-plussed and exhausted by the time I read it all. You were able to excite my senses and awake my muse. lol"
– sinnari at bag end message board commenting on one of Wolf's poems
Bizarre doesn't even begin to cover the absolute insanity that is this novel. It's completely illogical, a bit hard to follow, and absolutely irresistible. I found myself actually wanting to know, what is going to happen next?
– Woolf fire jon keats forum commenting on one of Wolf Larsen's novels
"That's quite nice, WolfLarsen. I really like the theme you touched on, that you can pretty much create or destroy whatever you want with your writing...it's quite powerful really"
– Midnight Pyro on writers hang out.com commenting on a Wolf Larsen poem
“Poems like this have their appeal. This one depicts, most effectively, the latent primeval animal power, lust and savagery that many people believe still lie just beneath the surface of 21st century society, today. We watch indications of it in the news, sometimes. Expertly written!”
– Stephen Wilkens of poem zone board said of dictatorship of the poet excerpt from the monologue "Blood and Semen":
"This is one of the most extraordinary poems I've read in a long while.
It really pins the reader to an intimate voice as-if speaking from the
dark and making so much sense it's scary. The onward flow suits the
maddening and unstoppable force of those elements, war, love, all
those things that unite us or destroy us.
'I make love to you on a huge white page'
'we smile and smile like shipwrecks'
are just a few of the clenching moments in this poem that have me
coming back to it.
Truly brilliant work. I could go on and on.
– on wild poetry forum, March 2007 commenting on Wolf's poem "Drinking Planets out of the Sky"
The most bizarre novel ever written?
