First made available in the United States in 1962, William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch and those who ventured to sell the illicit book were brought before obscenity courts on three separate occasions within the book's first four years in print. Despite breaking a different law on each separate occasion, Naked Lunch was judged to be equally obscene in all three cases. However, as Allen Ginsberg's testimony during the 1966 Massachusetts State Supreme Court trial that eventually exonerated Naked Lunch from its prior obscenity convictions demonstrates, there exist multiple interpretations and functions of the term "obscene". The discrepancy of usage between Burroughs, Ginsberg and the Court demonstrates a fundamental characteristic of obscenity, its ambiguity. The difficulty in definitively articulating the obscene is best characterized by United States Supreme Court Justice, Potter Stewart, in his famous quote, "I shall not today attempt to further define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [pornographic] ... But I know it when I see it." Despite the transparency and moral certitude Justice Potter assumes in his widely quoted remark, the inability of the Supreme Court to standardize or elucidate a description of the obscene beyond the subjective acts of

FROM A NAKED LUNCH:"People say that America is new. As if it suddenly appeared ex nihilo when the Fucking psychotic Calvinists arrived, the Pilgrims. To them it was as if the land suddenly appeared for them. The United States is relatively young, just a couple hundred years. But America, the earth, the land, the soil is very, very old, Ali...Before the white man, before the red skin, even when it was unoccupied by humans, the evil, yes, the evil was there in the land itself-there it lay, the true evil, just waiting to pop out. Interzone is a dying city, like Death in Venice, but America is in full swing and soon it's intrinsic evil will spread and spread across this great land of ours. It's becoming Interzone, only more unreal and crueler, that's America in two words: cruelty and greed, which of course leads to Fascism whose seed was planted long ago and is slowly coming to fruition. America is like the dad that sneaks into his children's rooms and rapes them in the dark and then makes them promise on penalty of death not to say anything and to act normal. That's what America is all about: It
