Comment about Anais Nin:- As a male, she has given me the best insight to a woman's mind I've ever struck, but the more I try, the less I know. She is the biggest liar with the best intentions I have ever come across,

The public hanging in "Little Birds" is in the story "The Woman on the Dunes" but only someone who knows that already could ask the question

Anais Nin, for a while, a long while, she has been my idol. But really, can a female look up to someone who always has sex on her mind? She is a strange yet compelling author who expressed her past and present in ways probably only understandable to her. She had an obsession with her father, "House of Incest" anyone? Then there was her husband and publisher but lets not forget her other "friends" whom she always saw. Reminds me of Pierre( I think). I'm not sure but the character that gets cheated on in Delta of Venus. Interesting woman. Interesting view. I like her.

Sex is what might interest whoever hasn't heard of this writer, but she goes deeper.

Bump, for those who dream what they might be, who want to be more than they dream, who accept that they are of dreams.

I've only just started reading through an installation of her diary, and none of her books

yes, she is a liar, with the best intentions, she is a manipulator, in the broadest sense of the word, she definitely embodies the quintessential woman mind, (at least i find myself seeing the world through eyes like hers) but more so she is a poet.

i dont know her other publications though i do intend to become better versed with her work, but i feel that characterizing her through one lens, mainly that which deals with sex, gives her a one dimentional, and quite pallid, veneer

she is sensual, feminine to the core, and analytical, masculine enough to flourish in an intellectual environment dominated by powerful male figures. she found a way to navigate both extremes and create a persona, in life, and literature, all her own.
