The World of Sex

£2.99

‘The World of Sex’ is Henry Miller’s most important essay, the manifesto in which he explains why sex matters and why he wrote his famously banned novels, ‘Tropic of Cancer’ and ‘Tropic of Capricorn’. Seeking to set the record straight, Miller argues that there is no contradiction between his salacious prose and his philosophy. In the kind of raw language his readers know so well, he narrates his escapades and formulates his philosophical conclusions.

Description

In The World of Sex, Henry Miller, one of the most scandalous writers of the 20th century explains his literary project

Henry Miller’s bold, explicit novels scandalized readers and remade the literature of his day. In this uncompromising literary manifesto he argues that sex is at the heart of his writing because it is at the heart of life – a vital force as essential as bread, money, work or play. Drawing on his own experiences and on the writing of his famously banned novels in Paris, he shows sex as a mysterious realm that must be explored if we are to be truly free.
