Nearer the moon : from A journal of love : the unexpurgated diary of Anaïs Nin, 1937-1939 by Anaïs Nin( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anais Nin's diary was her "ultimate confidante," and to it she revealed her private self, her doubts and weaknesses, and the uncensored details about her physical relationships. This discipline of daily writing also helped Nin develop the skills to write her edited diaries and best-selling volumes of erotica. The fourth volume of "A Journal of Love," Nearer the Moon covers the years 1937 through 1939 and continues the story begun in Fire of Nin's "dismemberment by love." She remains torn between three men: Henry Miller, whose detached self-immersion and artistic "impersonality" both attract and repel her; Gonzalo More, a sensitive and attentive but jealous lover who drives her to distraction; and Hugh Guiler, her faithful husband, who provides a calm center for Nin. In addition, a wide circle of family, friends, and admirers makes demands on Nin's time and emotional energy. She is constantly busy helping people - finding apartments and rent money, taking trips to the doctor, encouraging artistic pursuits. And yet, she cannot abandon her writing - the structured world of the writer is her refuge

"The years of the middle nineteen-forties find her in a Greenwich Village stdio surronded by young artists. Specifically and generally she battles the establishment and for a time becomes polarized between involvement with the young--among them Gore Vidal--and with the established order, represented by a man like Edmund Wilson. Once more her friends and acquaintances are vividly sketched, and the portrait of Wilson is unforgettable. We also follow her discovery of America, in the summer of 1947, when she makes her way in an old Ford to the West Coast and, eventually, to Mexico."--Dust jacket

"During these years, Anaïs Nin is again on the move although she explains that her roots are portable. She succumbs to the languorous appeal of Acapulco, lives for a short time in San Francisco, and then settles near Los Angeles. She returns at intervals to what she calls the more toxic life of New York. Apprehensively she revisits Paris, warned that it has changed since her departure in 1940, and is relived to find its soul intact."--Dust jacket

Anaïs has taken refuge once again in the United States, escaping the war that has engulfed most of Europe and destroyed her much beloved literary community back home in Paris. This is the second time she has had to immigrate to the US, and its culture seems just as alien and unwelcoming as it did the first time.-http://www.harcourtbooks.com
House of incest by Anaïs Nin( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 2020 in German and English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genesis of House of Incest was in the dream. The keeping of dreams was an important part of that exploration of the unconscious. But I discovered dreams in themselves, isolated, were not always interesting. Very few of them had the complete imagery and tension to arouse others' interest. They were fragmented. The surrealists delighted in the image themselves. This was satisfying to the painters and to the film-makers. But to the novelist concerned with human character dramas, they seemed ephemeral and vaporous. They had to be connected with life. It was psychoanalysis which revealed to me the constant interaction of dream and action. It was a phrase of Jung's which inspired me to write House of Incest. He said: "Proceed from the dream outward." In other words, it was essentially a matter of precedence. To capture the drama of the unconscious, one had to start with the key, and the key was the dream. But the novelist's task was to pursue this dream, to unravel its meaning; the goal was to reach the relation of dream to life; the suspense was in finding this which led to a deeper significance of our acts. Originally published in 1936, House of Incest is Anais Nin's first work of fiction. The novel is a surrealistic look within the narrator's subconscious mind as she attempts to escape from a dream in which she is trapped, or in Nin's words, as she attempts to escape from "the woman's season in hell." In the documentary Anais Observed, Nin says House of Incest was based on dreams she'd had for more than a year. Nin's usage of the word incest in this case is metaphorical, not literal. In this book the word incest describes a selfish love where one can appreciate in another only that which is similar to oneself. One is then only loving oneself, shunning all differences. --summary taken from Amazon.com®

A spy in the house of love by Anaïs Nin( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Spy in the House of Love, whose heroine Sabina is deeply divided between her drive for artistic and sexual expression and social restrictions and self-created inhibitions, echoes Anaïs Nin's personal struggle with sex, love, and emotional fragmentation. Although Nin found in her diaries a profound mode of self-creation and confession, she could not reveal this intimate record of her own experiences during her lifetime. Instead, she turned to fiction, where her stories and novels became artistic "distillations" of her secret diaries. Written when Nin's own life was taut with conflicting loyalties, her protagonist Sabina repeatedly asks herself, can one idulge one's sensual restlessness, the fantasies, the relentless need for adventure without devastating consequences? The main character, Sabina, realizes that she is a composite of many selves, each one seeking identity within relationships with five very different men, and while she seeks to live out each part of herself, she also craves unity, setting the stage for the battle for self-awareness
