Henry Miller and Surrealist Metaphor

«Riding the Ovarian Trolley»


Gay Louise Balliet

This book explores the origins and characteristics of French 20th Century surrealist aesthetics both in literary and fine art. As an aficionado of surrealism, Henry Miller employs metaphor to reflect «alchemical experimentation.» His surreal imagery depicts the entropy of our time. Miller offers salvation through immersion in the elemental, primal, and sexual.
