Tropic of Capricorn Mar 5, 2009
Clearly, I remain out of the mainstream in my lack of respect for Miller's writing. Capricorn is simply a long, undivided continuation of Cancer's stream-of-consciousness, diarist project. Miller was invovlved to some extent in the Paris-scene, opium-dominated pastimes, and I can only believe that his choppy offerings are to a large extent a product of that influence. If one is searching for prurient, or other mind-expanding literature -- it ain't here.
