Henry Miller

Field Manager

1997 Paradise Pisces

American Writer


The sex devil, large, luminous, lusty, raunchy, Henry.

From his first affair with the older Pauline Chouteau, mother of a tubercular high school boy, Henry's age, to his relationship with Brenda Venus when he was 85, blind in one eye and partially paralyzed, Miller epitomizes the erotic.

The history of Miller's cultural standing has had so many ups and downs and ins and outs that were it related to masturbation or fornication, an orgasm would certainly have resulted. Initially Miller was reviled as a pornographer, then he was championed as a writer-hero. Still later he was reviewed, reconsidered and rejected by a new wave of literary commentators and political activists. Most recently, thanks to the efforts of writers like Erica Jong, Miller's reputation is being resurrected..

Artists who deal directly with sexual themes are often controversial. The attempts to neutralize the genders, to dismiss the sexual, seems an ill-fated approach to conquering the neuroses that suppressed sexuality invokes. It's as if the gender-neutrals believe ignoring the sexual will make it unavailable for problem-making. But it is writers like Miller and Sade and Nin and Jong who remind us that the sexual is the central idea animating our lives. It cannot be ignored or neutralized.
