From a Library Foundation of Los Angeles discussion on William Burroughs and his writing techniques,
Barry Miles: I’m hoping that the cut-up stuff will influence people. Maybe people will return to it. As long as you regard it as prose poetry and just dip into it and take what you can from it, just as if you were reading a poem then it’s fine. Don’t look for narrative, you won’t find it.
David L. Ulin: It’s the dream logic I think in many ways. That’s how I’ve always sort of worked into it. I feel like I’m participating in someone’s dream. And I stay as long as I can. link
