Henry Miller Quotes

Henry Miller (1891 -1980) is renowned for breaking with existing literary forms and developing a new sort of semi-autobiographical novel that blended character study, social criticism, philosophical reflection, explicit language, sex, surrealist free association, and mysticism.

His hallmark works in this mode are Tropic of Cancer (1934), Black Spring (1936), Tropic of Capricorn (1939), and The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (1949–59), all of which are based on his experiences in New York and Paris, and all of which were banned in the United States until 1961.

Miller also wrote travel memoirs and literary criticism, and created watercolors.
