    A Miller’s TaleIf "Tropic of Cancer" was Henry Miller’s debut album, an outspoken work of radical sexual and philosophical self-revelation, then "Black Spring" is a lesser, sophomore work that is a shadow of the debut.Though it is still a worthy effort, it is a lesser work in many ways. It is shorter, it isn’t one continuous work that flows inexorably from beginning to end. It is more or less 10 semi-autobiographical works, each with its own chapter title, much like a collection of essays. [...]


    This book changed my life. No hyperbole. I never looked at the world the same way after reading this. It was also present at the moment of serendipity when I finally "got" modernism. Probably the best birthday gift I've ever received. Thanks Ken.

    Warning: This review is long, has excessive amount of quotes, and does not reach much of a conclusion. If you have a short attention span, this may not be for you. However, if you appreciate fine writing, I encourage you to read on. For me, Henry Miller is the finest writer America has produced over the past century. When his name comes up, most readers associate Miller with sex, scandals, pornography. This is mostly due to the press attention given to his two books, The Tropic of Cancer, and Th [...]

    لو خيرت أن أقابل واحدا فقط من جميع الأدباء والفنانين الذين أعجب بهم لاخترت ميلر دون تردد، ميلر طاقة إبداعية متدفقة تتحرك على قدمين، ساكتفي في مقابلتي معه بمراقبته وهو يتكلم يقرأ يكتب، يعلق على المارة يحكي لي عن أصدقائه وزوجاته. استطيع أن اقرأ لميلر عشرة آلاف صفحة دون توقف وأ [...]

    Black Spring is Henry Miller's hallucinogenic fragments between the Tropics. Each fragment or short story alternates between Paris and New York in a psychedelic swirl of stream of consciousness and technicolor modernism."I sit in the dead center of traffic, stilled by the hush of a new life growing out of the decay about me."

    ما أقسى القراءة لهنري ميللر!بعد الإعتياد على طريقة اختيار كلماته الفظة وبعد الإعتياد على كل هذا الجنون الفكرى ، والرغبة المتدفقة فى الكتابة عن كل شىء تجد نفسك أمام كتلة من الغضب الهادر لأديب عانى كثيرا هى ليست برواية ولا بسيرة ذاتية بل هى تداخل بينهما تأتى "ربيع أسود" كامتد [...]

    Can we just see, by show of hands, how many people understood what this book is about? Nobody has their hands up? OK. We have no idea what this book is about. Clearing that up makes reading it easier.Outside of his more auto-biographical works, Miller is just one lean metaphor-making machine. From page one, it can discourage even the bravest of readers, by giving you no time at all to adjust to the rhythm or the cadence of his sentences. In "Black Spring", you will find a very dark Miller, writi [...]


    I've read that Miller is out of fashion at the moment. I can see why he might have been in fashion in just the same way as James Joyce and D H Lawrence were banned – and so also fashionable – because of their shock element. Now none of them are particularly shocking so why should we keep reading? Based purely on this book, which the blurb on the back calls "his most distinguished book from a stylistic point of view," I can see that there is a lot more to Miller than simple shock tactics. His [...]


    In the heat of the late afternoon the city rises up like a huge polar bear shaking off its rhododendrons.If you can't enjoy this line, you might not enjoy this book. This line is perfect summary, the imagery that needs to be connected is fierce and brilliant. The point is that you are going to be falling into the recesses of Miller's brain, dancing with his Id as a stripper dances with the pole, you'll need to make the connections, you'll need to uncover the brilliance of the geography of Miller [...]


    In Black Spring Miller reinvents his inward journey, again endlessly listing, rewriting his history, trying to live dozens of lateral lives while mourning his single linear life. "One life! And there are millions and millions of lives to be lived." Like he's astonished a spirit like his is condemned to exist but once, on one patch of land in one chunk of history, so he refuses that fate and writes about everything and anything with an inhuman ferocity. It's a fever dream like Ginsberg's Howl, bu [...]


    لا ازال عند رأيي , هذا كتاب يستحق الحقد و القراءة كشاطىء يجذبك نحو مصيدة الضحكو تبتسم مع كل دمعة تسقطتخبرك اناملك بأنك ستذهبعلى إطار عينيكعلى ورقة اخرىصوب الثرثرة الغريبة التي تُسلم بكل شيء و لا شيء

    يستحق مكانا بين 3 ، 4 نقاط كتاب حافل بحيوية غير عاديةحافل بنصوص أقرب لقصائد شعريةميللر: مجنون، وأديب حرفي ممتاز، وغريب، ومعقد، مهووس بالجنس، مريض، وسأقرأ كل ما كتبه


    ان كنت تبحث عن رواية فهذه ليست رواية,ان كنت تبحث عن سيرة فهذه ليست سيرة كالسير المعتادة,لو كنت تبحث عن هذيان مجنون و رجل يسير مقتحما الأماكن و البشر يكسر كل الجمال بقرف محبب فهذا الكتاب لك .

    I could have done with more characters and less philosophy, but this is also Miller at the height of his surreal and madman powers, which is always entertaining. He really was the successor to Whitman, and here he's channelling him with little to no filter. Not his best book, nor his worst.Favorite passage:"Today it is the third or fourth day of spring and I am sitting at the Place Clichy in full sunshine. Today, sitting here in the sun, I tell you it doesn’t matter a damn whether the world is [...]


    Basically?That Miller is Nabokov, sans plot, wit, playfulness or purpose. Long streams of rarely heard nouns do not a classic make.

    Henry Miller is an asshole, and that is what makes him great.

    Frank Roberts

    “…Henceforward everything moves on shifting levels – our thoughts, our dreams, our actions, our whole life. A parallelogram in which we drop from one platform of our scaffold to another. Henceforward we walk split into myriad fragments, like an insect with a hundred feet, a centipede with soft-stirring feet that drinks in the atmosphere; we walk with sensitive filaments that drink avidly of past and future, and all things melt into music and sorrow; we walk against a united world, assertin [...]

    "Black Spring" is the second book in Henry Miller's most famous trilogy (“Tropic of Cancer”, “Black Spring”, “Tropic of Capricorn”), which together form a collection of some of the most original and unique works in contemporary fiction. Written from the mid to late 1930s the three books were banned in English-speaking countries because of their frank and graphic treatment of sex (but also, I can only imagine, because of the socially anarchistic and openly subversive philosophy underl [...]


    I loved this! I couldn't put it down and felt as if I were in a daze during the last week. The writing was distracted, thought-provoking, and had a very The-Wave-esque tone of articulation. I found a great part of it to be very quotable, beautiful, serene, but crass and unsociable at times. I can't say exactly what Miller hoped to achieve by writing this book, because it was more than anything a series of how he saw the world and the philosophies he attached to his thoughts. There is definitely [...]


    If only I could write like this!


    travel through all the places and still be a misfit; cynical towards big impersonal cities and modern society, until it's all desperate and grotesque and apocalyptic; live in the city anyway and glorify life and all it means, stream of consciousness and everything is very alive and there is no giving up involved, just messy incandescent living at which you turn out to be pretty good, with visions of equal grandeur and decay. i didn't expect this when i expected to like henry miller, it was a fun [...]

    Henry in fine spirits, Black Spring is a collection of works seeded together and wrapped up in Miller's later years, the final novel in the Tropics series. Very close in some parts to Lawrence Durrell's The Black Book, which I am to think influenced Miller, as there are some aspects that are too glucose for Henry's regular style. I just let Millers timeless rants flood me, not worrying too much if my mind wandered, I'd always return back to some part which managed to pull me in deep within the b [...]

    Henry Miller, the master of prose and unbelievably evocative imagery. It's not what you know, it's experience, it's how you make sense of the reality that you've been thrown into that Miller successfully expounds. Life is an overwhelmingly subjective experience. Not to deny the presence of an objective reality but, to accept and unflinchingly acknowledge the simple fact that we don't all think, feel, and experience this world in the same way but, to the contrary, all of our experiences are all w [...]


    This one sucked me in the way Miller's books always do. It's hard to wrap your brain around what he's doing, but once you dive in and let go of what you think a novel ought to be, you just can't get enough.I do get tired of the racial and ethnic slurs, but I guess that's part of his honesty. Still, some of it's pretty shocking by today's standards. And after a while, it's just annoying; we get it, man.There's a great Web site, millerwalks, that is an excellent guide to Miller's years in Paris. I [...]


    I hadn't read any Miller in a while so I got an urge to go and read some more. In hindsight, I think it would have been better to just go back and read one of his other books that I've already read. This one has some great images, some great tumbling language, some great twisting and turning motion that shifts and switches endlessly, but it felt a lot like the other five books of his that I'd read. I guess it's just gotten a little old.

    Dense and difficult to decipher. The writing style reveals the talent of the writer, his craftsmanship of words. But this style is also making it difficult to follow an idea from start to end.Overall, "Black Spring" emanates a lot of hate and disdain for the world the author is forced to live in, in which he doesn't fit.


    After being so impressed by Tropic of Cancer, I thought everything I was going to read would be equally good. Well, I guess I was wrong. Shouldn't have bothered.

    هذه تجربتي الثانية مع هنري ميللر، وشعرت بالضجر نفسه وأنا أقرأه. أعادني عامين إلى الخلف عندما قرأت له كتابه عن الشاعر الفرنسي رامبو. هنري ميللر بارع في إعطائك بعد كل شوط من الضجر ما بين عبارتين وست عبارات ممتعة تجعلك تبتسم، لكن هذا لا يكفي. كما أن في سرده شيء من النرسيسية المزع [...]
