About this product
- DescriptionLadders to Fire, Children of the Albatross, The Four-Chambered Heart, A Spy in the House of Love, Seduction of the Mitaur. Haunting and hyptic, these five vels by Anais Nin began in 1946 to appear in quiet succession. Though published separately over the next fifteen years, the five were conceived as a continuous experience-a continuous vel like Proust's, real and flowing as a river. The full impact of Anais Nin's genius is only to be found through reading the vels in context and in succession. They form a rich, lumius tapestry whose overall theme Nin has called woman at war with herself. Characters, symbols appear and reappear: w one, w ather unfolding, gradually revealing, changing, struggling, growing, and Nin had forged an evocative language all her own for the telling. The diary taught me that there were neat ends to vels, neat deuement, neat synthesis, she explains. So I began an endless vel, a vel in which the climaxes consisted of discoveries in awareness, each step in awareness becoming a stage in the growth like the layers in trees. Cities of the Interior fulfills a long-time desire on the part of readers, publisher, and Anais Nin herself to reunite the five vels in a single volume.
- Author BiographyAnais Nin (1903-1977) was one of the most unique literary figures of this century. As a novelist she was distinctly catalytic, and her life-long diary resembles no other in the history of letters. Her books have been translated in a dozen languages.
