The novel of the future by Anaïs Nin( Book )

33 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Novel of the Future, Anaïs Nin explores the act of creation--in literature, film, art, and dance--to arrive at a new synthesis for the young artist struggling against the sterility, formlessness, and spiritual bankruptcy afflicting much of modern fiction. Identifying those trends which she finds most destructive in modern fiction (reportage, the substitution of violence for emotion, and the growing cults of ugliness, toughness, and caricature), Nin offers, instead, an argument for and synthesis of the poetic novel. Drawing upon such related arts as filmmaking, painting, and dance, Nin discusses her own efforts in this genre as well as the development of such writers as D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Lawrence Durrell, Marguerite Young, and Djuna Barnes. In chapters devoted to the pursuit of the hidden self, the genesis of fiction, and the relationship between the diary and fiction, she addresses the materials, techniques, and nourishment of the arts, and the functions of art itself"--

Ladders to fire by Anaïs Nin( Book )

56 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After struggling with her own press and printing her own works, Anais Nin succeeded in getting Ladders to Fire accepted and published in 1946. This recognition marked a milestone in her life and career. Admitted into the fellowship of American novelists, she maintained the individuality of her literary style. She resisted realistic writing and drew on the experience and intuitions of her diary to forge a novelistic style emphasizing free association, the language of emotion, spontaneity, and improvisation

Paul is in flight from his father, and she, for reasons buried in her past, needs the opposition of a father figure to sharpen her own desire.

House of incest by Anaïs Nin( Book )

71 editions published between 1936 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 923 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®
Seduction of the minotaur by Anaïs Nin( Book )

"Seduction of the Minotaur is the fifth and final volume of Anaïs Nin's continuous novel known as Cities of the Interior. First published by Swallow Press in 1961, the story follows the travels of the protagonist Lillian through the tropics to a Mexican city loosely based on Acapulco, which Nin herself visited in 1947 and described in the fifth volume of her Diary. As Lillian seeks the warmth and sensuality of this lush and intriguing city, she travels inward as well, learning that to free herself she must free the "monster" that has been confined in a labyrinth of her subconscious. This new Swallow Press edition includes an introduction by Anita Jarczok"--

Waste of timelessness, and other early stories by Anaïs Nin( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 1993 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Written when Anais Nin was in her twenties and living in Louveciennes, France, these stories contain many elements that will delight her readers: details remembered from childhood, of life in Paris, the cafes, theatres; characters including dancers, artists, writers, women who devote themselves to their work and visions as well as romance, strangers met in the night; themes such as the scruples of lovers, the search for brilliant, imaginative living; the writer's experimentation with exotic words like "sybaritic" and "violaceous". In the craft of these stories readers are treated to a deft sense of humor, ironic wit, much conversation as well as ecstatic prose, and surprise endings. Throughout all, the Nin personality shines, a wonderful mixture of feeling and rationality, of vulnerability and strength
Rising tides : 20th century American women poets by Laura Chester( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of the female voice in America, this anthology includes the work of 70 women poets ranging from established names to the lesser-known. Rising out of the same growing conciousness that spawned the Women's Liberation Movement, this book is a feminist statement in the largest sense: it expresses a belief in the full humanity of woman and her right to define herself
Under a glass bell and other stories by Anaïs Nin( Book )

25 editions published between 1948 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Under a Glass Bell is now considered one of Anaïs Nin's finest collections of stories, it was initially deemed unpublishable. Refusing to give up on her vision, in 1944 Nin founded her own press and brought out the first edition, illustrated with striking black-and-white engravings by her husband, Hugh Guiler. Shortly thereafter, it caught the attention of literary critic Edmund Wilson, who reviewed the collection in the New Yorker. The first printing sold out in three weeks. This new Swallow Press edition includes an introduction by noted modernist scholar Elizabeth Podnieks, as well as editor Gunther Stuhlmann's erudite but controversial foreword to the 1995 edition. Together, they place the collection in its historical context and sort out the individuals and events recorded in the diary that served as its inspiration. The new Swallow Press edition also restores the thirteen stories to the order Nin specified for the first commercial edition in 1948
