[Henry and June From The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin] PDF/EBOOK


Rtiveness how ifficult it is to be a strong woman while still holding on to one s emotional vulnerability I learned so much from her insightsand while I won t be having three or four lovers any time soon heh I appreciate the spirit of adventure with which she tried to live her life It s something I hope to emulate in my own wayI cried wept as I read the last paragraph of Henry and June because it magically captured exactly where I am at this moment in my lifeLast night I wept I wept because the process by which I have become woman was painful I wept because I was no longer a child with a child s blind faith I wept because my eyes were opened to reality to Henry s selfishness June s love of power my insatiable creativity which must concern itself with others and cannot be sufficient to itself I wept because I could not believe any and I love to believe I can still love passionately without believing That means I love humanly I wept because from now on I will weep less I wept because I have lost my pain and I am not yet accustomed to its absenceHow Confessions of a Gay Priest: A Memoir of Sex, Love, Abuse, and Scandal in the Catholic Seminary did she know Henry and June is the type of journal that makes me want to highlight passage after passagesince journals so often have the types of personal reflections that are hard to achieve in pure fiction Iid get bored with it fast though Maybe because after the first few instances of lust jealousy psychoanalysis and then lust jealousy and psychoanalysis it was pretty much the same events and observations repeating themselves in Black Love Signs : An Astrological Guide to Passion, Romance and Relationships for African Americans (aka Sexy Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) different forms But then again journals aren t supposed to beesigned to engage the reader they re Das Schwert der Totengöttin designed to be self fulfilling So it s kinda hard to complain about a journal from a reader s standpoint Which brings me to wonder something about these writings Nin shared her journal with several people actually most of the men in her life who she writes about read her journal at some point with her permission So I m curious about how honestly she really wrote knowing it could potentially be read by her subjects It seemed honestraw buto we tailor things to the eyes of those who will be reading it The same way we might be inclined to structure fiction according to a workshop we re in or which publisher we re aiming for Nin says at one point in her journal that she no longer wants to write about her husband because she can t o so honestly that it s like writing about God You exalt someone and create a istance between yourself and that person not wanting to say anything bad about them for fear of being blasphemous In this case it seemed to be Nin being attentive to her husband s sensitivity and the tenderness she felt for him even though her physical passion was found through Henry At one point in the journal her psychiatrist said to her You Black Love Signs : An Astrological Guide to Passion, Romance and Relationships for African Americans (aka Sexy Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) do not want weak men but until they have become weak in your hands you are not satisfied Though he tended to make annoying generalizations I think he really nailed that one I was wondering if her passions were so intense toward Henry only because she couldn t possess him completely It seems so common especially if you broaden it to everyday greed Because of her greed Nin s husband also nailed it when he said this to her Beware of being trapped in your own imaginings You instill sparks in others you charge them with your illusions and when they burst forth into illuminations you are taken in I can t get enough of her She is such a complex woman I identify with so much of her intelect with her hunger for love and with her powerfully erotic self every page I read I find something else that applies so well to my life in this moment my relationships that it scares me Reading heriaries is a very personal experience for meLATER EDIT I have very strong opinions on what a woman should be like and I strive to live up to them More than being a way in which I think the world should live it s a way in which I want to live Anais is p While reading this I was thinking that Anais is a narcissistic bitch which I on t really necessarily hold against her I m sure it makes reading her journals interesting than it would be otherwise On one hand she comes off as so egotistical spending the majority journals interesting than it would be otherwise On one hand she comes off as so egotistical spending the majority her pages on how wonderful other people think she is Oh you are so beautiful you are so wonderful I love you than I could ever love another woman you are everything to me So on and so forth On the other hand she is incredibly insecure She even admits she is constantly striking poses Considering there are no other hands you see both sides of her are obsessed over the same thing herself I sense this even when she is raving about Henry andor June She s cheating on her poor husband who we are told worships her with Henry who we are also told worships her and there are a few other men who also worship her of course and she is so worried about her own feelings over all this that she nonchalantly professes how innocent she feels when writing about her infidelities Even While Just A Few Feet Away From Her Unsuspecting while just a few feet away from her unsuspecting rather self blinding husband She must be overestimating the promiscuity of others if she sill thinks she s got much sexual awakening to o But like I said all this Women's Activism and Social Change Rochester New York 1822 1872 does help make her journals interestingShe is a good writer though a bitramatic and tends to over analyze things She seems open sincere and honest but sometimes seems hindered because she The Western Scar: The Theme of the Been-To in West African Fiction does not know what she truly feels Reading this I can t help but think I know women like her and this is a great introspective view of whatrives them. Her own conscience a single uestion ominates her thoughts What will happen when June returns to Paris An intimate account of one woman's sexual awakening Henry and June exposes the pain and pleasure felt by a single person trapped between two lov. Henry and June From The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs NinI can t remember the first time I read Nin s short stories I was probably technically a bit too young for that kind of stuff my mom left all her books laying around and id not really believe in hiding the R rated material but I also feel weirdly lucky I was exposed to her writing early because it clearly influenced my ideas about sex in what I believe to be a positive way Her emphasis on sensuality her honesty and frankness about the beautiful and complicated emotions that go with sex the The Mother I Carry: A Memoir of Healing from Emotional Abuse diversity of her characters her female characters enjoyment of their bodies that kind of stuff is not usually what you are exposed to as a teenager which is a shame But importantly I learnt from Nin that sex is something you can write about shamelessly and beautifully that you can make literature out ofirty stories and that is a wonderful thing I ll always have a soft spot for her workBut Henry and June is not fiction its material lifted or less Anthology of Articles on African Linguistics and Literature directly from Nin s veryetailed The Writing Workshop diaries andocuments the intense year of her life when she first met Henry Miller whose work I have never read and must now absolutely get to and his wife June Nin becomes fascinated with June at first but uickly Agricultural Engineering develops feelings for Henry as well the whole situation turning uickly into a blend of obsession intense physicalesire intellectual stimulation and search for personal identity The two writers throw themselves into a passionate affair while understanding perfectly that neither of them will leave their respective spouses The affair eventually ended but they remained in touch for the rest of their lives having left a long lasting influence on each otherNin was psychoanalyzed when the science was still relatively new and she was an insightful amateur analyst herself she kept a meticulous and Distant Echoes Finding Keys To Life After Abuse deeply introspective record of her life spending a long timeetailing her inner world and trying to understand it In this book she struggles with conflicting How Debuggers Work Algorithms Data Structures and Architecture desires and ideas tries to make sense of it all with varying levels of successIn Ana s Nin I have found something of a kindred spirit a pervert and an iconoclast but also a feminist yes you read that right who felt very strong andeeply vulnerable at the same time and who had a really hard time reconciling those parts of herself That wonderful uote I with a An Alien Heat deeper instinct choose a man who compels my strength who makes enormousemands on me who The Alchemy of Culture: Intoxicants in Society does notoubt my courage or my toughness who oes not believe me naive or innocent who has the courage to treat me like a woman perfectly captures how I felt in my search for a partner I read that sentence and I wanted to scream This This is what I looked for my whole life and eventually found in my husband It felt like such a huge contradiction to be happy to submit to someone and still be assertive and living on my own terms Ana s clearly struggled with that conundrum though I understand she never truly resolved itNo she is not perfect not always likable or even moral the idea of all that lying and cheating actually grosses me Out I Wouldn T Want To Hang I wouldn t want to hang with someone that selfish and fickle But it is a complete

mistake and egregious 
and egregious to reduce this book to simple erotica or ismiss it because its author is not a very nice person because there is a lot going on there than smut The honest attempt at untangling her feelings reactions and at understanding herself are fascinating the prose is absolutely stunning and to be honest it makes me feel Sonic Alchemy: Visionary Music Producers and Their Maverick Recordings dreamy to read about people who had such strong bonds intellectually and physically Most people forget that the brain is where most of the arousal happens after allIt was also interesting to find what is clearly the seed of some of her short stories in the anecdotes she wrote in this journal Anyone familiar with the Little Birds collection will find a few sentences a few events that very obviously inspired Nin s fiction laterown the road5 stars for pure reading pleasure and for the entrancing journey in the mind of a very uniue writerI use the word pervert here for lack of a better one I can t find a word that means someone who shamelessly enjoys sex and refuses to be judged as a human being based on that aspect of themselves and Mapping wild gardens: The symbolic conquest of South Africa (African literatures in English) doesn t meaneviant or into alternative sex whatever the fuck that means Anais Nin has been an idol of mine for a long time There are few women of literary stature which I find relatable As a young reader I cherished Judy Bloom As an adult woman I was thrilled to read Anais Nin Intelligent witty and sexually provocative I admire her supreme linguistic talent Her writing in whtever form always maintains a powerful poetic lexicon She made love most fervently when she held the pen in her hand This excerpt from her personal journal is so very intimate flux with sexuality but you feel her grace and Gramatica de baza a limbii romane delicate vulnerability Somethingeeply personal left for us readersI also admire Nin because she was an uninhibited sexual being long before it was socially acceptable Is it even acceptable today Sensuality is a secret power in my body someday it will healthy and ample a while Is Anais Nin a good writer Ought we take her seriously Apparently some Suggestive Inuiry into the Hermetic Mystery with a Dissertation on the More Celebrated of the Alchemical Philosophers Being an Attempt Towards the Recovery of the Ancient Experiment of Nature do but theescription on the back of the Penguin edition about sums up this book culled from the unexpurgated College University Budgeting: College And University Budgeting diaries of Ms Ninuring the period in which writer Henry Miller and his wife June Masefield figure large on her horizon it is a compelling account of a woman s sexual and emotional awakening If you Integrating Cleveland Baseball don t Taken from the original uncensored journals of Anaïs Nin Henry and June spans a single year in Nin's life when sheiscovers love and torment in one insatiable couple From late 1931 to the end of 1932 Nin falls in love with Henry Miller's writing. ,

Roan at that charmless phrase variations of which are so thoughtlessly used to The Modern Drunkard's Adventures with Alcohol describe any risue tome penned by a woman you may enjoy Henry and June here But what this really is thisiary so obviously written with publication in mind so much of it is flowery Grassroots Leviathan daring and conflicted is a record of one pe Dear Ana s You think too much You need to act your age Get a job Honor your marriage vows or get aivorce You re like a teenager with a tattered Voices and Veils doodled spiral bound notebook and a Starbucks prepaid account app Or

inconstant and annoying You re not sucking the marrow out of life you re just sucking Grow up Get out in the world Take on some responsibility Then you ll have something real to write about Sincerely A Twenty first Century Woman This is the kind of book I love reading I am Love in Bloom delighted to find Anais Nin She is extraordinaryHer writing is brilliant or shall I say terrific She writes short sentences packed with meaning I trust her voice completely There are no back thoughts She is writing for herself One can easily sense this in short crisp and beautifully worded sentences While reading this book I also felt that this could easily be a novelAt times her writing in certain parts of her journals reminds me of D H Lawrence but soon her style honesty the eagerness to tell it all in clear and precise manner set her fiercely apart not only from Lawrence but from others She is just being Anais Nin Just read this the whole book carries this uality ofescription and keeps the reader firmly in her world I have just been standing before the open window of my bedroom and I have breathed in African Native Literature: Or, Proverbs, Tales, Fables and Historical Fragments in the Kanuri or Bornu Language deeply all the sunshine the snowdrops the crocuses the primroses the crooning of the pigeons the trills of the birds the entire possessions of soft winds and cool smells of frail colors and petal textured skies the knotted grey brown of old trees the vertical shoots of young branches the wet brown earth the torn roots I suppose I need to read this book again She explores relationships sexuality and unconscious and how all these unfold in her life and impact her There is much in her journals in terms of sexuality that has most probably been later theorized by the modernay theorists For some vague reasons I could not help thinking of Gender Trouble by Judith Butler these journals show us what it means to be human in a world of rigidly The Alcohol Bible defined categories man women straight gay transgender They all intersect These categories trouble her because she could be so much The reality of human life pushes her to be just one thing Thereams the unconscious have other esigns patterns other realities to offer and she goes deep into them unafraidin her book the novel into them unafraidIn her book The Novel the Future she emphasizes the importance of reams of the unconscious and what lies in there We must explore the unconscious if we want to create Just going after the real or concrete is to impede what really real is and only pursuing this real has the potential to make us alive conscious of what we o and who we are The writing itself shows the reality of human life as ever flowing ever mobile in sharp contrast to the school of realism which she rejects to embrace and explore the real thingI strongly recommend her I am Really Keen On Reading Of Work I Ve Read Delta keen on reading of work I ve read Delta Venus and Little Birds which I enjoyed but until I read this I had not realized what an incredible writer Nin is I also thought it was really interesting to see Henry Miller through her eyes I have read Miller s Tropic of Cancer which i really enjoyed which is very harsh and honest but this sort of gives you a ifferent perspective of him I truly think she is a brilliant writer and am looking forward to reading of her work How BWWM does one review publishediaries According to literary and am looking forward to reading of her work How Morning by Morning: How We Home-Schooled Our African-American Sons to the Ivy League does one review publishediaries According to literary Though Anais Nin is a beautiful insightful writer I feel strange talking about her writing style when iscussing a section of her journal What I will talk about instead is the way that books often come into your life at a time when you need them It happened to me once with 1984 when I needed to crystalize exactly why writing was so important to me then again with Everything is Illuminated when I needed to be encouraged back into writing after I stopped for a long time I was inspired to walk into a bookstore and purchase Henry and June a week or two ago because I ve been BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) doing a lot of self examination recently and having heard a lot about Anais Nin I thought her journals would be the best thing to accompany me on the beginning of my journey Originally I wanted a full volume of her journals but everything was sold out so I ended up buying Henry and Juneand since I Prophetic Activism d never read her before I thought it would be a good introductionI am so grateful that this book came into my life when itid All I knew about Nin before reading it had to Romance do with the sex she had People love to sensationalize and so when one hears the name Anais Nin one automatically thinks sexual awakeningeviance erotica What amazed me was how much we had in common outside of that the insecurities the way in which we see men and the world the positive and negative aspects of a Catholic upbringing and most importantly the ongoing battle between loving submission and intellectual asse. And his wife June's striking beauty When June leaves Paris for New York Henry and Anaïs begin a fiery affair that liberates her sexually and morally but also undermines her marriage and eventually leads her into psychoanalysis As she grapples with.
