What People are saying about this

Erica Jong
Miller is more mystic than pornographer. He uses the obscene to shock and awaken, but once we are awake, he wants to take us to the stars.
Maxwell Geismar
Plexis is the core volume of The Rosy Crucifixion: the volume which has the most complete description of Henry Miller's basic beliefs, values, opinions, judgements, both at the time of his crucifixion and at the later time when the trilogy was written. Plexis is simply the most marvelous volume of emotions and ideas and visions and nightmares about man and society in the twentieth century -- with art as the link perhaps, or as the soul's refuge -- that I have read in many a long year. There is absolutely no subject in the world that Henry Miller does not seem to know about, want to talk about, and to evaluate with a deep authority of wisdom. He is probably the most learned of all American writers, the most open to ideas and feelings, and yes, the most worshipful of all the aspects of life, as well as the most critical literary spokesman of our time.
