Sexus, Plexus & Nexus: The Rosy Crucifixion. Three Volumes Complete.
by Miller, Henry.
A Near Fine crisp set of the trilogy in Fine bright unclipped jackets in the slipcase. There is a hardly discernible scrape across the front of one volume, else Fine. This trilogy centers on the somewhat fictionalized life of Miller from his New York life in 1928 to his departure for France in 1930. Miller depicts his tumultuous married life, his struggle to find his writing voice and the exploration of his philosophical and intellectual passions. Miller's Rosy Crucifixion, his second major trilogy, took more than 10 years for the author to complete. Beginning in 1949 with Sexus, a work so controversial all of Paris was abuzz with L'Affaire Miller, (and publisher Maurice Girodias saw himself threatened with jail), following in 1952 with Plexus, and finally concluding with 1959's Nexus, the three works are a dazzling array of scenes, sexual encounters and ideas, covering Miller's final days in NY, his relationship with June Miller and her lover, his take on the arts, his favorite writers, his thoughts, his insights, his days and his nights, finally ending with a glorious farewell to the life he'd known and an anticipation of the life he would lead.
