Anais Nin

Anais Nin
Speaking with Henry Miller
Part Eight


I teased him.

Perhaps
all I have written
is untrue,

untrue
of June,

untrue
of me,

all illusion
and
delusion.”

“No,”
he said.

“Whatever
you see,

or

whatever
you do
is right.”

“Am
I
Not
the Idiot?”

“No.
you see
more,

you
just
SEE
more,”
said Henry.

“What you see
is there
all right.

Yes.
For the
first time
I see
some beauty
in it…”

“I cannot
express
tenderness,”
mused Henry.

“Only
extravagance.

Only
passion
and energy.”

Henry says,
“It is
quite clear,
of course,

that I
am
a
failure.”

“But I
don’t want
you to be.

I won’t
let you
be one.

I want
you
to write,

to live

and
be
recognized.”

Henry Miller
