Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty years have passed since Grove Press first published Henry Miller's landmark masterpiece — an act that would forever change the face of American literature. Initially banned in America as obscene, Tropic of Cancer was first published in Paris in 1934. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards permitted its publication. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, "one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century". Also banned in America for almost thirty years, Tropic of Capricorn is now considered a cornerstone of modern literature.

Together, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn are a lasting testament to one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century and his contribution not only to literature but to the cause of free speech.

Synopsis:

For use in schools and libraries only. Forty years have passed since Grove Press first published Henry Miller's landmark masterpiece — an act that would forever change the face of American literature. Initially banned in America as obscene, Tropic of Cancer was first published in Paris in 19
