Anais Nin & The Remaking Of Self: Gender, Modernism, And Narrative Identity

by Diane Richard-Allerdyce
 
With one of the first critical studies to treat Nin's work as a whole, Richard-Allerdyce reclaims Nin's writings as she traces the development of Nin's theories of gender and the creative self. She presents Nin's works in the context of a long and complex history of women's efforts to find a means for expressing female experiences in writing.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A critical study of the whole body of writing by Nin (1903-77), who secured her place as a major figure in the literary world with her provocative diaries and relationships, but whose work itself has received little attention. Finds that her work mirrored her struggle to resist depression, and that she used specific literary forms in conjunction with psychoanalysis in a process of narrative recovery. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
