Célèbre contre-utopie contemporaine qui offre un contraste frappant avec celle de Huxley. Dans ce livre pessimiste et peut-être trop réaliste, la dictature règne en maîtresse de fer avec"Big Brother" qui contrôle les moindres gestes de l'humanité. Les trois slogans du parti unique donnent une idée de cette farouche vision anticipatrice. "La guerre, c'est la paix, La liberté, c'est l'esclavage. L'ignorance, c'est la force". Très répandue et très lue, elle forme avec l'oeuvre d'Aldous Huxley une sorte d'alternative et se montre très intuitive pour ce qui est d'une certaine portion de l'humanité occidentale de l'Est

Sexus by Henry Miller( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Henry Miller left America for Paris in the 1930s to lead the life of a literary bohemian, he called this death of his former existence and his resurrection as a writer a 'rosy crucifixion'. This dramatic transformation provided the leitmotif for some of Miller's finest writing, embodying everything he felt about self-liberation and the true life of the spirit. 'Sexus', the first volume in the 'Rosy Crucifixion' trilogy, looks back in fictionalised form to Miller's America life in the 1920s. Frantically seeking antidotes to his dreary job and life 'in a morbidly respectable neighbourhood' with his wife Maude, Miller becomes obsessed with the promiscuous and mysterious Mara, dance hall hostess, femme fatale and pathological liar. First published in Paris in 1949, this picaresque, extraordinarily candid tale of Miller's sexual escapades amongst the low-life of Brooklyn was banned in Great Britain and America for nearly twenty years."--Back cover

The rosy crucifixion by Henry Miller( Book )

9 editions published between 1955 and 2007 in German and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Plexus is the core volume in The Rosy Crucifixion: the volume which has the most complete description of Henry Miller's basic values, beliefs, opinions, judgments, both at the time of his 'Crucifixion' and at the later time when the trilogy was written. Plexus is simply the most marvelous volume of emotions and ideas and visions and nightmares about man and society in the twentieth century -- with art as the link perhaps, or as the soul's refuge -- that I have read in many a long year. There is absolutely no subject in the world that Henry Miller does not seem to know about, want to talk about, and to evaluate with the deep authority of wisdom. He is probably the most learned of all our American writers, the most open to ideas and feelings, and yes, the most worshipful of all the aspects of life, as well as the most critical literary spokesman of our time."--Maxwell Geismar." -- Publisher description
