THE MIRROR AND THE GARDEN - Realism and Reality in the Writings of Anais Nin

by Hinz, Evelyn J. (re: Anais Nin)

Condition: Very Good

New York: Harvest Books - Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1973. (xii) 127 pp. Trade paperback format. Light edge and corner wear with very minor creasing on the spine; no interior markings. Acclaimed as one of the most extraordinary writers of the last century and the most perfectly emancipated woman, Anais Nin has attracted a devoted following throughout the world, but she has been largely neglected by scholars until recently. Evelyn J. Hinz's pioneering study set out to give Miss Nin the recognition she deserves and was the first full-scale appraisal of her published work to date. In this perceptive study, the artistic achievement of Anais Nin as critic, novelist, and diarist, is considered as part of the literary mainstream. She is discussed as an innovator of a poetic, highly subjective, and individualistic style; as an early practitioner of the modern psychological novel; and as an authentic feminine voice in the arts. The Chapters are: The Mirror and the Garden - Argument; A Word About Influences and Unprofessional Studies - D. H. Lawrence: An Unprofessional Study; Karma Tropism and Fixation - Themes; An Edifice Without Dimension - Structure; Modern Psychomachia - Characters; Bread and the Wafer - Language; Backward and Forward - The Novel of the Future; My Father, My World, My Children, My Dreams - The Diaries; followed by a bibliography and an index.. First Printing - First Thus. Soft Cover. Very Good. 8vo.
