And his wife June's striking beauty When June leaves Paris for New York Henry and Anaïs begin a fiery affair that liberates her sexually and morally but also undermines her marriage and eventually leads her into psychoanalysis As she grapples with This is the kind of book I love reading I am delighted to find Anais Nin She is extraordinaryHer writing is brilliant or shall I say terrific She writes short sentences packed with meaning I trust her voice completely There are no back thoughts She is writing for herself One can easily sense this in short crisp and beautifully worded sentences While reading this book I also felt that this could easily be a novelAt times her writing in certain parts of her journals reminds me of D H Lawrence but soon her style honesty the eagerness to tell it all in clear and precise manner set her fiercely apart not only from Lawrence but from others She is just being Anais Nin Just read this the whole book carries this uality of description and keeps the reader firmly in her world I have just been standing before the open window of my bedroom and I have breathed in deeply all the sunshine the snowdrops the crocuses the primroses the crooning of the pigeons the trills of the birds the entire possessions of soft winds and cool smells of frail colors and petal textured skies the knotted grey brown of old trees the vertical shoots of young branches the wet brown earth the torn roots I suppose I need to read this book again She explores relationships sexuality and unconscious and how all these unfold in her life and impact her There is much in her journals in terms of sexuality that has most probably been later theorized by the modern day theorists For some vague reasons I could not help thinking of Gender Trouble by Judith Butler these journals show us what it means to be human in a world of rigidly defined categories man women straight gay transgender They all intersect These categories trouble her because she could be so much The reality of human life pushes her to be just one thing The dreams the unconscious have other designs patterns other realities to offer and she goes deep into them unafraidIn her book The Novel of the Future she emphasizes the importance of dreams of the unconscious and what lies in there We must explore the unconscious if we want to create Just going after the real or concrete is to impede what really real is and only pursuing this real has the potential to make us alive conscious of what we do and who we are The writing itself shows the reality of human life as ever flowing ever mobile in sharp contrast to the school of realism which she rejects to embrace and explore the real thingI strongly recommend her I am really keen on reading of work

    How does one review published diaries According to literary merit Though Anais Nin is a beautiful insightful writer I feel strange talking about her writing style when discussing a section of her journal What I will talk about instead is the way that books often come into your life at a time when you need them It happened to me once with 1984 when I needed to crystalize exactly why writing was so important t

    Is Anais Nin a good writer Ought we take her seriously Apparently some do but the description on the back of the Penguin edition about sums up this book culled from the unexpurgated diaries of Ms Nin during the period in which writer Henry Miller and his wife June Masefield figure large on her horizon it is a co

    While reading this I was thinking that Anais is a narcissistic bitch which I don't really necessarily hold against her I'm sure it makes reading her journals interesting than it would be otherwise On one hand she comes off as so egotistical s
