Episode Summary

Anais Nin Observed
This program is a portion of a longer film documentary by Robert Snyder about Nin and Miller, two eminent writers of the literary renaissance that started after World War One. Mr. Miller's reputation as a wholly original American writer has been secure for a generation through such works as "Tropic of Capricorn" and "Colossus of Maroussi". Miss Nin was well-known to a mainly European avant-garde audience through her private life, her short stories and novels until the publication of her diaries, which she had kept from age 11. She was then taken up by a new generation of mainly younger readers, and was much in demand as a lecturer. Something of a cult figure, Nin seemed to provide a needed synthesis of feminist and aesthetic sensibilities.moreless
