Henry Miller: The Major Writings

Henry Miller: The Major Writings

by Leon Lewis

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Lewis proposes to rescue Miller from the ``acolytes and adversaries'' who have obscured his contribution to American letters. He divides Miller's important works into two groups; in the second he sees Miller attempting to explain how he reached the ``position of psychic strength and creative insight'' he celebrates in the works of the first, especially Tropic of Cancer. This proves to be a fruitful approach, but since Lewis finds most of Miller's ``major writings'' defectivesome radically sohe might pass for another adversary. A useful study for undergraduate and large public library collections, but one that leaves the importance of Miller's achievement in doubt. Grove Koger, Boise P.L., Id.
