This happened, somewhat momentously in a Supreme Court decision in 1965, making Miller's William Gordon's 'The Mind and Art of Henry Miller' was one of the first major studies of Miller’s work. As William Gordon demonstrates in his book on Miller, subjects and categories are for Miller unreal in that they are intellectual concepts, coming after the fact of living experience. Mental and spiritual liberation is his constant answer: ‘Instead of repressing instinct, wishes, desires, and urges, we must live them out.

As a result, the books were frequently smuggled into the States, where they proved to be a major influence on the new Beat Generation of American writers, most notably Jack Kerouac, the only Beat writer Miller truly cared for. By the time his banned books were published in the 1960s and he was becoming increasingly well-known, Miller was no longer. Gordon, William A.

Professor Gordon has chosen the one of European romanticism with its various subsidiaries, partly because Miller himself has pointed toward that direction in The Books in My Life and elsewhere, and partly, of course, because the category is roomy enough to accommodate so many of the writer's splendid contradictions and rhetoric. The time has come to rescue Miller from his pornographic limbo and to fit him in some respectable literary tradition.

Miller has always deserved to be taken as seriously as he took himself, buffoonery aside. Gordon does this, and he nails it. Miller may have celebrated life's unmentionables, but he also was a philosopher, an aesthetician, and -- above all -- a powerful writer.

Gordon, William A. The Mind and Art of Henry Miller
I was amazed to find that nobody has reviewed this compact and intelligent account of Henry Miller, and wondered why. OK, there are half a dozen obvious reasons for this, the first being that he’s not, to my knowledge at least, on any academic list of ‘classics.’ Next his work was once much sought after because it was banned - pornographic, obscene, anti-American, diffuse, disrespectful, etc, but now it doesn’t measure up to, say, Hemingway or Faulkner. There are other reasons, too, why Miller’s popularity has declined: he writes long, thick books; and they don’t fit easily into any category - are they novels, memoirs, essays, philosophy, psychology, sociology or … just books?

As William Gordon demonstrates in his book on Miller, subjects and categories are for Miller unreal in that they are intellectual concepts, coming after the fact of living experience. Mental and spiritual liberation is his constant answer: ‘Instead of repressing instinct, wishes, desires, and urges, we must live them out. Only thus can man find peace within himself, and peace within the self is the way to peace in the world.’ Apart from being a great entertainer, Miller has a deal of depth in his work - and of course in his life. He deserves every word of Gordon’s tribute.
