4.0 out of 5 stars getting to know Henry Miller, May 24, 2004
This review is from: Wisdom of the Heart (New Directions Paperbook) (Paperback)
I first purchased Tropic of Cancer prior to this book, but had not yet read it, when I came across this collection of essays and stories. I enjoyed it so very much. Reading his essays gave me great insight into who Henry Miller was, and I was able to start Tropic of Cancer with a better understanding of his writing style. It enabled me to better appreciate his writing and understand his significance as a writer. Tropic of Cancer is highly erratic, reading "Wisdom of the Heart" allowed me to understand that this is what Miller would be like and I was ready to embrace him, after coming away from "Wisdom" with a sense of what his philosophies are like. Some of the stories are admittedly trite and the book's entire collection is somewhat ragged, but certain writings really shone, and Miller's philosophies rang loud and clear throughout everything. An excellent read for someone who is curious about Miller the man and not yet ready to embark upon the Tropics.
