Henry Miller and How He Got That Way

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter provides an analysis of Miller's relationship with Walt Whitman, and examines this sense of a transcendent literary correspondence. It shows that Miller's concern is not only to ‘borrow’ or allude to Whitman, but also to become his writing correspondent. The chapter furthermore shows how Miller participates in the development of twentieth-century literary theory by attributing it to the reconceptualisation of what writing does and does not do.

Keywords:   Walt Whitman, transcendent literary correspondence, writing correspondent, literary theory, reconceptualisation of writing
