Anais Nin - Author

About the Author

Partly of Spanish origin, Anaïs Nin was also of Cuban, French and Danish descent. She was born in Paris and spent her childhood in various parts of Europe. Her father left the family for another woman, which shocked Anaïs profoundly and was the reason for her mother to take her and her two brothers to live in the United States. Later Anaïs Nin moved to Paris with her husband, and they lived in France from 1924 to 1939, when Americans left on account of the war. She was analysed in the 1930s by René Allendy and subsequently by Otto Rank, with whom she also studied briefly in the summer of 1934. She became acquainted with many well-known writers and artists, and wrote a series of novels and stories.

During her later years Anaïs Nin lectured frequently at universities throughout the USA. In 1973 she received an honorary doctorate from Philadelphia College of Art and in 1974 was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters. She died in Los Angeles in 1977.

Waste of Timelessness and Other Early Stories

Waste of Timelessness and Other Early Stories

Author: Anais Nin, Allison Pease, Gunther Stuhlmann Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/05/2017

Written when Anais Nin was in her twenties and living in France, the stories collected in Waste of Timelessness contain many elements familiar to those who know her later work as well as revelatory, early clues to themes developed in those more mature stories and novels. Seeded with details remembered from childhood and from life in Paris, the wistful tales portray artists, writers, strangers who meet in the night, and above all, women and their desires. These experimental and deeply introspective missives lay out a central theme of Nin's writing: the contrast between the public and private self. The stories are taut with unrealized sexual tension and articulate the ways that language and art can shape reality. Nin's deft humor, ironic wit, and ecstatic prose display not only superb craftsmanship but also the author's own constant balancing act between feeling and rationality, vulnerability and strength. Perhaps more than any other writer of the twentieth century, she mastered that act and wrote about it on her own terms, defying the literary and social norms of the time.

Trapeze The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin, 1947-1955

Trapeze The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin, 1947-1955

Author: Anais Nin, Franklin V. Benjamin, Paul Herron Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/05/2017

Anais Nin made her reputation through publication of her edited diaries and the carefully constructed persona they presented. It was not until decades later, when the diaries were published in their unexpurgated form, that the world began to learn the full details of Nin's fascinating life and the emotional and literary high-wire acts she committed both in documenting it and in defying the mores of 1950s America. Trapeze begins where the previous volume, Mirages, left off: when Nin met Rupert Pole, the young man who became not only her lover but later her husband in a bigamous marriage. It marks the start of what Nin came to call her trapeze life, swinging between her longtime husband, Hugh Guiler, in New York and her lover, Pole, in California, a perilous lifestyle she continued until her death in 1977. Today what Nin did seems impossible, and what she sought perhaps was impossible: to find harmony and completeness within a split existence. It is a story of daring and genius, love and pain, largely unknown until now.

Winter of Artifice Three Novelettes

Winter of Artifice Three Novelettes

Author: Anais Nin, Laura Frost Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/12/2016

Swallow Press first published Winter of Artifice in 1945, following two vastly different versions from other presses. The book opens with a film star, Stella, studying her own, but alien, image on the screen. It ends in the Manhattan office of a psychoanalyst? -? the Voice? -? who, as he counsels patients suffering from the maladies of modern life, reveals himself as equally susceptible to them. The middle, title story explores one of Nin's most controversial themes, that of a woman's sexual relationship with her father. Elliptical, fragmented prose; unconventional structure; surrealistic psychic landscapes? -? Nin forged these elements into a style that engaged with the artistic concerns of her time but still registers as strikingly contemporary. This reissue, accompanied by a new introduction by Laura Frost and the original engravings by Nin's husband Ian Hugo, presents an important opportunity to consider anew the work of an author who laid the groundwork for later writers. Swallow Press's Winter of Artifice represents a literary artist coming into her own, with the formal experimentation, thematic daring, and psychological intrigue that became her hallmarks.

Mirages The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin, 1939-1947

Mirages The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin, 1939-1947

Author: Anais Nin, Kim Krizan Format: Paperback Release Date: 02/09/2015

Mirages opens at the dawn of World War II, when Anais Nin fled Paris, where she lived for fifteen years with her husband, banker Hugh Guiler, and ends in 1947 when she meets the man who would be the One, the lover who would satisfy her insatiable hunger for connection. In the middle looms a period Nin describes as hell, during which she experiences a kind of erotic madness, a delirium that fuels her search for love. As a child suffering abandonment by her father, Anais wrote, Close your eyes to the ugly things, and, against a horrifying backdrop of war and death, Nin combats the world's darkness with her own search for light. Mirages collects, for the first time, the story that was cut from all of Nin's other published diaries, particularly volumes 3 and 4 of The Diary of Anais Nin, which cover the same time period. It is the long-awaited successor to the previous unexpurgated diaries Henry and June, Incest, Fire, and Nearer the Moon. Mirages answers the questions Nin readers have been asking for decades: What led to the demise of Nin's love affair with Henry Miller? Just how troubled was her marriage to Hugh Guiler? What is the story behind Nin's children, the effeminate young men she seemed to collect at will? Mirages is a deeply personal story of heartbreak, despair, desperation, carnage, and deep mourning, but it is also one of courage, persistence, evolution, and redemption that reaches beyond the personal to the universal.

Seduction of the Minotaur

Seduction of the Minotaur

Author: Anais Nin, Anita Jarczok Format: Paperback Release Date: 12/08/2014

Some voyages have their inception in the blueprint of a dream, some in the urgency of contradicting a dream. Lillian's recurrent dream of a ship that could not reach the water, that sailed laboriously, pushed by her with great effort, through city streets, had determined her course toward the sea, as if she would give this ship, once and for all, its proper sea bed.... With her first swallow of air she inhaled a drug of forgetfulness well known to adventurers. Seduction of the Minotaur is the fifth and final volume of Anais 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, author of Inventing Anais Nin: Celebrity Authorship and the Creation of an Icon. Swallow Press publishes all five volumes that make up Cities of the Interior: Ladders to Fire, Children of the Albatross, The Four-Chambered Heart, A Spy in the House of Love, and Seduction of the Minotaur.

The Novel of the Future

The Novel of the Future

Author: Anais Nin, Deirdre Bair Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/07/2014

In The Novel of the Future, Anais Nin explores the act of creation? -? in film, art, and dance as well as literature? -? to chart a new direction for the young artist struggling against what she perceived as the sterility, formlessness, and spiritual bankruptcy afflicting much of mid-twentieth-century fiction. Nin offers, instead, an argument for and synthesis of the poetic novel and discusses her own efforts in this genre as well as its influence on 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. Originally published in 1968, The Novel of the Future remains a classic among both creative writers and literary scholars. This new Swallow Press edition includes an introduction by Nin biographer Deirdre Bair.

A Spy in the House of Love

A Spy in the House of Love

Author: Anais Nin, Anita Jarczok Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/10/2013

Although Anais 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. 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 Nin's personal struggle with sex, love, and emotional fragmentation. 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?

Nearer the Moon The Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin 1937-1939

Author: Anais Nin Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/12/2003

Anais Nin's diaries revealed her private self, her doubts and weaknesss and the uncensored details about her relationships. This fourth volume of A Journal of Love follows Henry and June, Incest and Fire to cover the years 1937-39. It continues the story of what Nin called her 'dismemberment by love.' She remains torn between three men: Henry Miller, whose detached self-immersion and artistic amorality 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. The theme of these diaries is maturity: Nin has acquired the wisdom to see through Henry and Gonzalo, while her relationship with her husband is clarified. She cannot love him physically but she needs him as an anchor. Nearer the Moon is also the volume in which Nin settles with her father, Joaquin Nin. The diary ends with Nin's departure from France as war looms. She has no idea that she will never live in France again and that this is the last diary to be written there. - Preface by Rupert Pole, Nin's 'other husband' - First UK & Commonwealth edition - Only edition currently available - Essential reading for devotees of Nin's diaries

Little Birds

Little Birds

Author: Anais Nin Format: Paperback Release Date: 28/02/2002

Anais Nin's Little Birds is published in Penguin Modern Classics. Anais Nin's second volume of erotic short stories after Delta of Venus, Little Birds is broader in scope, encompassing the entire breadth of human sensuality. Each of the 13 stories captures a moment of pure desire, in all its complexity and paradoxical simplicity. Anais Nin (1903-77), born in Paris, was the daughter of a Franco-Danish singer and a Cuban pianist. Her first book - a defence of D. H. Lawrence - was published in the 1930s. Her prose poem, House of Incest (1936) was followed by the collection of three novellas, collected as Winter of Artifice (1939). In the 1940s she began to write erotica for an anonymous client, and these pieces are collected in Delta of Venus and Little Birds (both published posthumously). During her later years Anais Nin lectured frequently at universities throughout the USA, in 1974 and was elected to the United States National Institute of Arts and Letters. If you enjoyed Little Birds, you might like Nin's Delta of Venus, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

Arrows of Longing The Correspondence Between Anais Nin and Felix Pollak, 1952-1976

Author: Anais Nin Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/06/1998

What moving poems you fashion out of your sadness. Beautiful, wistful poems of deep feeling. You have not lost your gift. What a pair we are. I have been fighting cancer for six months. May be well in August. I will read your poems to my students. -- Ana\u00efs Nin to Felix Pollak In the winter of 1951-52, Ana\u00efs Nin was a writer in despair. More than a dozen publishing houses had rejected her new novel, A Spy in the House of Love, and Nin became desperate for literary acceptance. Encouragement came from an unexpected source. Felix Pollak, an Austrian emigr\u00e9 and Rare Book Librarian at Northwestern University, had been entrusted with the task of acquiring some of Nin's manuscripts for the library. A longtime admirer of her work and himself an emerging poet, Pollak wrote Nin a letter of appreciation, and this quickly blossomed into an animated and devoted correspondence. Through this correspondence of over 200 letters, both writers present nuanced self-portraits that shed fresh light on their complex personalities. Their frank and open exchange of views on life and art spanned twenty-five years. Editor Gregory H. Mason provides us with a unique insight into the development of these two writers as they grow in their friendship and as artists.

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.

Children of the Albatross

Children of the Albatross

Author: Anais Nin Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/01/1959

Children of the Albatross is divided into two sections: The Sealed Room focuses on the dancer Djuna and a set of characters, chiefly male, who surround her; The Cafe brings together a cast of characters already familiar to Nin's readers, but it is their meeting place that is the focal point of the story. As always, in Children of the Albatross, Nin's writing is inseparable from her life. From Djuna's story, told in The Sealed Room through hints and allusions, hazy in their details and chronology, the most important event to emerge is her father's desertion (like Nin's) when she was sixteen. By rejecting realistic writing for the experience and intutitions she drew from her diary, Nin was able to forge a novelistic style emphasizing free association, spontaneity, and improvisation, a technique that finds its parallel in the jazz music performed at the cafe where Nin's characters meet.

The Four-Chambered Heart V3 in Nin's Continuous Novel

The Four-Chambered Heart V3 in Nin's Continuous Novel

Author: Anais Nin Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/01/1959

The Four-Chambered Heart, Ana\u00efs Nin's 1950 novel, recounts the real-life affair she conducted with caf\u00e9 guitarist Gonzalo Mor\u00e9 in 1936. Nin and Mor\u00e9 rented a house-boat on the Seine, and under the pervading influence of the boat's watchman and Mor\u00e9's wife Helba, developed a relationship. Mor\u00e9 named the boat Nanankepichu, meaning not really a home. In the novel, which Nin drew from her experiences on the boat, the characters are clearly based. Djuna is an embodiment of Nin herself. A young dancer in search of fulfillment, she encapsulates all that the author was striving for at that time. The character of Djuna features in other novels, perhaps weaving a directly autobiographical thread into Nin's fiction. The gypsy musician, Rango, is therefore Mor\u00e9, and his invalid wife is Zora. The old watchman is present as a force which, along with Zora, works against the lovers in their quest for happiness. Nin's main concern is the outside, and how it affects the interior. Water is a cleverly used theme. \u201cI have no great fear of depths,\u201d says Djuna, \u201cand a great fear of shallow living.\u201d Rango and Djuna's relationship is, in effect, their effort to remain afloat. Often, Nin employs a stream of consciousness, especially in her flowing analyses of love, life and music, which continues the water image. Ana\u00efs Nin's writing is typically exquisite in its detail and texture. She describes Paris: its black lacquered cobblestones and silver filigree trees. The humid scarfs of fog on the river, and the sharp incense of roasted chestnuts reveal their source through their reality: Nin's personal experience.
