Henry Miller and How He Got That Way

Katy Masuga

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter studies Fyodor Dostoevsky, another of Miller's writing influences, showing him as a way to prevent the paradox of simultaneous living and creative expression in writing. It shows how Miller's writing considers the question of how a text is read and also examines the importance of distinguishing between the writer and the persona.

Keywords:   Fyodor Dostoevsky, creative expression, writer, persona
