9780007241316: Plexus (Harper Perennial Modern Classics)

The second sensational volume in the ‘Rosy Crucifixion’ trilogy from the controversal and brilliant Henry Miller.

When Henry Miller left America for Paris in the 1930s to lead the life of a literary bohemian, he called this death of his former existence and his resurrection as a writer a 'rosy crucifixion'. This dramatic transformation provided the leitmotif for some of Miller's finest writing, embodying everything he felt about self-liberation and the true life of the spirit.

‘Plexus’, the second volume in the trilogy, tells the story of the early days of Miller's turbulent second marriage, his impoverished life in New York and his first steps towards being a writer.

Review:

Praise for Henry Miller:

‘American literature begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done.’ Lawrence Durrell

‘I regard Henry Miller as a master.’ Colin MacInnes

Praise for ‘Sexus’:

‘A huge, sprawling narrative of Miller's life in New York, “Sexus” culminates in a description of an orgy as remarkable for its account of the author's powers of sexual endurance as for its versatility. Interspersed are descriptions of his friends, some of them extremely funny and all of them lively. The lack of inhibition and genteel or moral restraint with which Miller describes these various characters gives “Sexus” a unique vitality. Miler cannot be pompous, a rare virtue, and his honesty is absolute.’ Spectator

About the Author:

Henry Miller was born in 1891 in Brooklyn, New York but he soon moved to Paris. His first book 'Tropic of Cancer was published in 1934. It was followed five years later by its sister volume 'Tropic of Capricorn'. In 1940, Miller returned to the US where he wrote the 'Rosy Crucifixion' trilogy which received great praise from the likes of Eliot, Pound and Beckett. Outside of France, however it was universally banned due to its sexually explicit and candid nature and was not published until 1963. Miller died in 1980.
