    As a no holds barred relic of the sleazy 1920s, this is an audacious text, marred by passages of sublime arrogance, outrageously boring prose soup, and inane porn scenes Miller s status as a provocateur is well earned, his style a frenetic mash up of Dostoevsky, Lawrence and Selby Sexus is incoherent, meandering and shameless, but compelling and unavoidably stimulating.

    This is such a difficult book to write about because it s so expansive and so forthright in its world view This is my first foray into Henry Miller and lets just say that it has truly altered my perceptions, and affected my world view Miller is a nutjob, and often times you can t help but loathe his actions and are revolted by his way of thinking, but this is where he succeeds and makes his strongest victories Miller s writing is the most confessional personal essay one can imagine He never This is such a difficult book to write about because it s so expansive and so forthright in its world view This is my first foray into Henry Miller and lets just say that it has truly altered my perceptions, and affected my world view Miller is a nutjob, and often times you can t help but loathe his actions and are revolted by his way of thinking, but this is where he succeeds and makes his strongest victories Miller s writing is the most confessional personal essay one can imagine He never shies away from telling us of hisdevious visions in order to create alikeable personality for himself He strips himself bare and includes his most bizarre sexual and primal impulses Obviously there is a strong emphasis on the book s sexual proclivities as it was a pivotal moment in the deconstruction of our country s censorship laws, but Miller I believe is not trying to be overtly graphic in his sex writing merely to shock people so he can sellbooks In my opinion he includes the sex scenes in all their detailed glory because he wants to give them as much space in his writing as they exist in his world Sex is a huge part of most people s lives, be it actually having sex or merely thinking about it Miller was an especially amorous person, so a book about his life is going to contain a lot of sexual writing Is this a sensational way to write a book Damn right But the beauty of Miller is that he couldn t give two shits He is driven and unrepentant of any of his beliefs He wasn t trying to start a revolution here, he was just writing the only way he could And controversial subject matter aside, it s just worth reading for the poetic style of his prose which contains some of the most aesthetically beautiful sentences, forget content, that I have ever read There are times I would read paragraphs out loud to myself just to hear the way they sounded coming off my tongue So yeah, I like Henry Miller He has won me over as a convert and I m very excited to delve deeper into his other writings

    I believe that the trilogy title The Rosy Crucifixion is a free interpretation of the mystical term Rosicrucianism the Order of the Rosy Cross Thus Henry Miller is a Rosicrucian and alchemist of passion and the name of the novel Sexus wholly expresses the contents of the book.The best thing about writing is not the actual labor of putting word against word, brick upon brick, but the preliminaries, the spade work, which is done in silence, under any circumstances, in dream as well as in the wa I believe that the trilogy title The Rosy Crucifixion is a free interpretation of the mystical term Rosicrucianism the Order of the Rosy Cross Thus Henry Miller is a Rosicrucian and alchemist of passion and the name of the novel Sexus wholly expresses the contents of the book.The best thing about writing is not the actual labor of putting word against word, brick upon brick, but the preliminaries, the spade work, which is done in silence, under any circumstances, in dream as well as in the waking state In short, the period of gestation.And for the artist of Henry Miller s calibre this period of gestation and the spade work is an ecstasy of love.His mouth would wreath itself in a veritable mandibular ecstasy he would work himself up until the very soul of him came forth in a spongy ectoplasmic substance It was a horrible state of affection, terrifying because it knew no bounds It was a depersonalized glut or slop, a hangover from some archaic condition of ecstasy the residual memory of crabs and snakes, of their prolonged copulations in the protoplasmic slime of ages long forgotten.And Henry Miller s love confessions are a boiling geyser of martyr s lust.Even being crucified, if one is crucified by love, may be an excruciating delight

    Henry Miller is nothing short of a favorite writer of mine, after just one book I feel like I discovered a whole new universe between his pages I feel like I ve been let in a secret club of people who can feel so deeply that their hearts beat in the spine of the book, who can be filled with so much of anything that their blood oozes in the spaces between letters To say that I like his writing is an understatement I fell in love with it This semi autobiographical work is, in itself, very Henry Miller is nothing short of a favorite writer of mine, after just one book I feel like I discovered a whole new universe between his pages I feel like I ve been let in a secret club of people who can feel so deeply that their hearts beat in the spine of the book, who can be filled with so much of anything that their blood oozes in the spaces between letters To say that I like his writing is an understatement I fell in love with it This semi autobiographical work is, in itself, very good fiction I m sure it s embellished, in true style of every over achieving author, but it s not embellished to the point where you don t believe it any The characters are real, they re human through their flaws, through their denial and acceptance of life s moments, they are a bunch of characters in the real sense of the word people whom you find hard to believe you would see on the street, in your neighborhood, because such individuals could only gravitate around someone like Miller He is the center piece of this trilogy, and by all means, he has to be His portrayal of himself is pathetic he s a man of a thousand vices, of which just the first are women and alcohol, he is weak in his will to do anything except for laying around and having fun, he is defined, ultimately, by his cowardice and laziness How, can you ask, is he then the great man that I advertise him to be Well, he s a genius the way he writes beggars belief I could not have expectedout of his work, and I feel sad that I haven t read him earlier There might be people out there who find his style shallow and empty, as his life was all about himself, sex, himself, literature, himself, sex, alcohol, sex. you get the point But I beg to differ even in his most dirty episodes, those that give feminists heart attacks, he never shames women, never debases them They are, to him, part of the few things beautiful in this world, part of what is to be worshipped, be it that his prayers come in the form of sex did I say he had a lot of sex In order to understand his take on women better, I advise anyone interested to read his correspondence with his wife, Anais Nin They are exquisitely beautiful declarations of love and you can recognize his penmanship in there, as well To Plexus , I say

    Henry Miller always writes with a surge of life being pushed through his pen His stories, countless stories, always with another point of view at one moment, as an all knowing superior man, and the next, as a good for nothing, useless piece of garbage that s floating about the air He s all too ready to express his truth, even when it doesn t serve him favorably Who can t relate Sex is part of life The view that Henry Miller is attempting to show himself off as some kind of Casanova has nev Henry Miller always writes with a surge of life being pushed through his pen His stories, countless stories, always with another point of view at one moment, as an all knowing superior man, and the next, as a good for nothing, useless piece of garbage that s floating about the air He s all too ready to express his truth, even when it doesn t serve him favorably Who can t relate Sex is part of life The view that Henry Miller is attempting to show himself off as some kind of Casanova has never come through to me He writes objectively, as if to say Yeah, it happened This is what it was and before you know it, he s gallanting into some other room, all together unconcerned with the scene he was just inextricably a part of.Who hasn t received something from reading some Henry Miller You can learn to live from his books, if even a small compartment of your life

    I intended to give it 3 stars but because of the last 2 chapters almost 50 pages i decided that it deserve the 4 stars.The big difference between Sexus and his first two gems Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn is that here there s a lot of sex without any aesthetic or artistic purposes Also many times i feel he constrained the events and encounters with other characters his ordinary nonsense about life and women reach another high limit.He still got the great talent of a bohemi I intended to give it 3 stars but because of the last 2 chapters almost 50 pages i decided that it deserve the 4 stars.The big difference between Sexus and his first two gems Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn is that here there s a lot of sex without any aesthetic or artistic purposes Also many times i feel he constrained the events and encounters with other characters his ordinary nonsense about life and women reach another high limit.He still got the great talent of a bohemian artist, still use the most remarkable language among American novelists You can keep reading for many successive hours without felling boring except for the unnecessary porn scenes.The most remarkable parts in Sexus are When he tried to get rid of Maude by convincing her ex lover to save her from him The party he arranged for his friends when he got the bonus His definition of creation and creativity How Melanie got into the book His dream of Una Kent Hamson s letter Finally the most beautiful parts i ve ever read by Miller until now is the last 50 pages which starts with Cleo at Minsky brothers then the two deaths of Osmanli the Turk, and the end with Miller the dog and his woof woof

    To be able to give oneself wholly and completely is the greatest luxury that life affords Real love only begins at this point of dissolution I ve giving this 4 stars for the wild energy of Miller s vision and writing, and the iconoclastic way in which he challenged the rules of fiction but this comes with massive caveats about the casual racism now a Chink was different Chinks were white slavers But a Jap you could trust , implicit homophobia he was a bit queer, wasn t he Didn tTo be able to give oneself wholly and completely is the greatest luxury that life affords Real love only begins at this point of dissolution I ve giving this 4 stars for the wild energy of Miller s vision and writing, and the iconoclastic way in which he challenged the rules of fiction but this comes with massive caveats about the casual racism now a Chink was different Chinks were white slavers But a Jap you could trust , implicit homophobia he was a bit queer, wasn t he Didn t you tell me he was in love with a bus driver Or was he a N lover though women having sex together is totally ok, preferably with a male watching or participating and complete macho obsession with the potency of the penis she had several orgasms in succession and almost fainted in the process Incidentally, this isn t just one woman but all good women in Miller world are multi orgasmic at the sight of a erect penis, while you know a bad women because she s frigid Oh, until she catches a glimpse of said Miller s always erect penis, of course Still, at least sex and pleasure are not the prerogative of men, even if the fantasies that underpin the sexual scenarios and the writing of sex are very different from, say, that of Anais Nin.While this has been cited as literate pornography, I m not convinced that that s true as I m not sure this is written to titillate in actual fact, the sex scenes are pretty samey I soon started skimming them and areabout a rejection of bourgeois values though I was immensely amused that during this book, Miller is working a 9 5 corporate job than anything else Sex is a counter cultural marker as is the writing of it in explicit detail.I came to this book on the back on Anais Nin s writings, especially her diary that details her m nage with Miller and his wife June here known as Mara and then Mona in Paris The frenetic energy might all belong to Miller but theintriguing character is Mara Mona June and the role she plays in Miller s own inner narrative but if they are able to throw themselves at one another recklessly, concealing nothing, surrendering all, if they admit to one another their interdependence, do they not enjoy a great and unsuspected freedom It s this goal of liberation that really drives the book, and Miller s simultaneous power over, and enthrallment to, an endlessly elusive woman then it came to me only if she were dead could I love her the way I imagined I loved her is one that reverberates through male writing in a western cultural tradition from Catullus Lesbia poems, via Dante s Vita Nuova and Petrarch s sonnets to Laura in the Canzoniere all the way through to Swann s obsession with Odette in Proust These women are all subject to the overwhelming literary, spiritual and physical desires of their male lovers and creators which is why it s especially seductive and a bit subversive that in Miller s case we have, in Anais Nin, a female voice from within this nexus of desires.So I enjoyed this for its crazy whirl of youthful adventures in New York it s only at the end that Miller and Mona start to talk of travelling to Europe , its philosophising the truth that the goal of life is the living of it , and the full on rejection of limiting conventions whether in writing or living It s easy to see how influential this was, and it s difficult to imagine an On the Road without Miller though Kerouac s vision is very different Just be ready for an awful lot of hardily erect penises and gushing ejaculations
