Henry Miller sought to reestablish the freedom to live without the conventional restraints of civilization His books are potpourris of sexual description, quasi philosophical speculation, reflection on literature and society, surrealistic imaginings, and autobiographical incident After living in Paris in the 1930s, he returned to the United States and settled in Big Sur, California Miller s first two works, Tropic of Cancer Paris, 1934 and Tropic of Capricorn Paris, 1939 , were denied publication in the U.S until the early 1960s because of alleged obscenity The Colossus of Maroussi 1941 , a travel book of modern Greece, is considered by some critics his best work His other writings include the Rosy Crucifixion Trilogy Sexus 1949 , Plexus 1953 , and Nexus 1960 In 1976 Norman Mailer edited a selection of Miller s writings, Genius and Lust.
