    One thought on “Incest: From a Journal of Love”

    1. I want to spread myself on lots of paper, turn it into lots of sentences, lots of words so that I won't be walked on.- Anais NinNin's Incest is an explosive, emotional confession; an illuminating self analysis and in-depth psychological study of her soul. Relentlessly probing and insightful, Nin details and analyzes dreams and daily events, shedding light on her exhaustive need for love, in part due to the vacuous hole in her psyche left by her father's abandonment of the family when she was sti [...]

    2. This book is really good when you are single and unhappy about it because it will make you fall crazily in love with everything from your pillow to your favorite song. It fixes whatever that thing is that sucks when you are alone. And makes it perfect.

    3. OK, I don’t understand how she could sleep with her father and be even marginally alright with it. I don’t believe in the astrology she constantly wrote about, and her morals are completely different than mine. So this book is fascinating to me. The writing is beautiful, and the story of Anais Nin’s life from her late 20s to early 30s makes me think that my life is incredibly boring. I mean, seriously, she seduced every male she spent time with, including her father. She seduced some femal [...]

    4. What a beautiful, beautiful thing: to be a woman. This is what Anais and her neuroticism, whore-ish behaviour and countless mistakes teach you.

    5. If you’re not up for reading Anaïs Nin’s entire catalogue (which is what I plan to do, eventually), Henry and June is probably the book to dip into for a taste of her journals: it captures the passion and joie de vivre that she’s famed for. But while I loved that book, I think I enjoyed Incest more.Admittedly, it is really, really long (~200,000 words), with an unevenness of writing that can be frustrating. There are times when you’re dying to know what’s been happening and Nin simply [...]

    6. “To hell, to hell with balance! I break glasses; I want to burn, even if I break myself. I live only for ecstasy. Nothing else affects me. Small doses, moderate love, all the demi-teintes – all these leave me cold. I like extravagance, heat… sexuality which bursts the thermometer! I’m neurotic, perverted, destructive, fiery, dangerous – lava, inflammable, unrestrained. I feel like a jungle animal who is escaping captivity.”how can one describe the hunger and joie de vivre of anaïs n [...]

    7. Anais is inflated, overly romanticizing and obviously obsessed with her prowess. Good for her. She also changed the face of the feminine and exposed some of the deepest aspects of sexuality that has ever been writ. She almost made me want to sleep with my own father. Almost.

    8. I have never encountered a more hateful and repugnant subject of literary work than Anais Nin. I was eager to read her after hearing her lauded as a feminist hero, but what I found was a broken, tedious, narcissistic person with no sense of personal ethics. You're essentially reading the diary of a bored, spoiled housewife who fills her days with various adulterous escapade. This does not come across nearly as interesting as it sounds. This is not the story of a sexually liberated woman, but of [...]

    9. In my opinion this book is overrated but much better than other works she wrote. As a writer, I do not like her. She is predictable and obnoxious.

    10. I love how Nin writes; so tangibly and sensuous. She writes about ugly, terrible, taboo things and makes it so damn beautiful and romantic and sexy. And, of course, with a bravery and exposure that I'm not sure I've ever seen paralleled! Nin is all feminine and is a fantastic example of the female writer. Analytical, emotional, insightful, psychological, relational, personal, strong, beautiful, asthetic, narrative, dynamic, non-linear. I find her very exciting to read.i also found her inspiring. [...]

    11. A fascinating insight into a rather complex woman. Not as shocking as I thought it would have been given its title. Anais is a woman struggling desperately to find herself and her own sexuality. She is however certainly no helpless victim. She orchestrates many of her own disasters. Her ability to tell lies and to step from one role and one life to another is remarkable if somewhat disturbing. Though she is not without guilt, for she often laments how she hates all the lies but then goes on to o [...]

    12. No, "Incest" is not a symbolic title. Anais Nin really does do it with daddy — repeatedly — and shares it all with you, dear reader, in her 1932-34 volume of her unexpurgated diary. Since it's Nin, there are other salacious exploits with other people, but her — ahem — unusual experiences with the father who left when she was a girl are the most likely to stay with the reader, for good or ill. Needless to say, Nin went through some analysis during this time. Staying sort of objective is a [...]

    13. Anaïs Nin verkar ha skrivit dagbok under hela sitt vuxna liv, och nu svider det att jag höll i den fem böcker tjocka, samlade utgåvan på Antikvariat Fausts rea för någon månad sen. 80 kronor! Men du, punktjejen som på min inrådan köpte den istället, hoppas du blev nöjd! Jag är inte alls bitter! ;)       ”Incest” utgör ett utdrag ur Nins löpande dagböcker, och skildrar åren 1932-34 då Nin lever i Paris, är gift men samtidigt lever promiskuöst och är älskarinn [...]

    14. There comes a time in everyone's life where they are faced with conflicting thoughts. On one hande basis of my rating, this book is very well written. Anais Nin has such a poetic way of writing. I almost feel as if I'm in Paris with her. On the other hand, the conflicting thought I couldn't help but be mildly disturbed that not only did she sleep with her father, but she also aborted a six month old child. *Which may or may not have been commonplace in that time period* However even with the que [...]

    15. I read almost everything Nin wrote when I was younger, and admired her a great deal. Now, much older, I find myself strangely bored by all the sex. It seems like all she thinks about is sex. She swoons so much about Henry Miller it makes me want to throw up. She slept with everyone, it seems like--even her therapists and her father. Of course the sex with her father is disturbing, but at the end of the day it's a bit boring because it's just like the sex with everyone else. As much as I admire h [...]

    16. I enjoyed this second book in the series but, I must confess that I preferred "Henry and June" over this book and that is only due to the fact that I felt this book was emotionally draining at times, especially if you could relate to certain situations. In this book, there are many more social interactions, with other individuals, that were involved in Anais's life. Honestly, it was exhausting and overwhelming at times. I could sense how tiring her life was at moment and yet I felt the need to r [...]

    17. For someone who opened herself up completely in her writings, she went all out here! I know that this was in fact her diary and I believe it wasn't supposed to be published until the death of her husband (as in Henry and June) if these diaries were to be published at all, even after her death. She tells it all here--and I won't spoil it fort you. It's a must read for anyone who's read her erotica or other diaries. On second thought I'm changing my rating to five stars as I'm now re-reading this. [...]

    18. 26 September 2007As Nin gets older, her Diary gets better and better. She is so insightful and intelligent: except when it comes to her relationship with Henry Miller. He bugs me, and the way she degrades herself for him bugs me even more. Except for that, her Diary is fascinating, filled with her exploits with her many lovers. Even jaded V can continue to be shocked at times, as well.

    19. Cartea a aparut în limba română sub titlul Anais Nin, Incest/ Din jurnalul dragostei la editura Humanitas in colectia "Raftul Denisei", anul acesta, 2016. Nu este singura editie a acestui volum din uriasul jurnal pe care autoarea l-a tinut intrega viata incepand de la 12 ani dar este primul necenzurat.Recenzia pe care am scris-o se gaseste pe site-ul Literaturape tocuri

    20. I think that this book explains the feelings of the people who fell in love with a man/woman who is related to them and that's why we're going to understand what's their perception and their hidden feelings.

    21. I'm sorry for Anaïs Nin and those who love her, but I couldn't read past 20 or so pages. It's boring, like reading a teenage Myspace diary or like some "aspiring writer's" Livejournal, or like 4chan. I realize that it could be of interest to the people who have a strong interest in Anaïs Nin's personality, and it was probably "offensive, revolutionary and piqued many a intellectual's interest" but for God's sake - it was the 30ies, those people were up in arms for most insignificant reasons, w [...]

    22. I have yet to find an author that can contest Nin's breathtaking prose. Her unmasking of love and emotion through her wild affairs, her idealization of absolutism, and her concurrent strength and sensitivity shines through her diaries in a way that is pure, unfiltered, and so very human. This book has its fingers dipped in many pies. So often I was surprised by how such simple sentence construction housed such extensive concepts, ideas, and feelings, deeply rooted within a complex set of well th [...]

    23. Contrasting this with the prior volume of her diary leaves one with a sense of how astrology and psychoanalysis can combine to mess up a previously impressive mind. (Particularly if the analysts botch the counter-transference, i.e screw the analysand.) The only really memorable section comes late in the volume, her graphic description of a late-term abortion.

    24. Spoiler alert: she straight up fucks her dad. Multiple times. She has mixed feelings about it, which is rather unusual for her. Her honesty about how it jars her makes a compelling read. Yes, she is awful, and yes she has awful tastes in men. This volume ends with an extraordinary retelling of having an abortion. Her ambivalence about choosing to have an abortion can be infuriating at times, but strikes me as honest in a Nin-esque kind of way. (Truth is never an absolute with this nutty gal.) We [...]

    25. Anais Nin is an extraordinary writer and woman. Her large and hefty volume of expurgated diaries revolutionized writing for women, entirely. The expurgated diaries are amazing, with a stark light shone on the French--beats / bohemian--movement. There are so many fantastic, talented, skilled, and gifted artists from the movement, and Nin is one of them.What's fascinating about the expurgated batch are the very detailed descriptions of that lifestyle, as Nin was more than acquainted with some of t [...]

    26. After years of knowing Anais Nin only as a crossword clue (many of those years believing her to be a him), I thought I should go ahead and pick up some of Nin's writing, most specifically, some of her journals as she is known to me most as a journalist, and then vaguely as an eroticist. The vagaries of the library resulted in the volume of journal I checked out being the 2nd half of the unexpurgated account of Anais Nin's affair with Henry Miller. The timeline also covers Nin's affairs with her [...]

    27. Anais Nini tunde- ja aistingurikas looming on pigem eluline kui kunstiline armastusprint. Iga lause on nagu kehaline puudutus, mida võib nautida tunni või paar või kogu öö alistunult, keskendunult, kujutlusmaailma süvenenult.

    28. Passionate and TwistedLetter to the Editor Published January 3, 1993 in the New York Times Book Review.To the Editor:Katha Pollitt's review of "Incest" (Nov. 22), the latest volume of Anais Nin's unexpurgated diary, seems to draw a conclusion that diminishes the work. Ms. Pollitt wonders if this book's revelations were orchestrated by hidden editorial hands seeking to promulgate a cult of Nin. She encourages us to wait for Nin's biography, suggesting that the secondhand sleuthing of an academic [...]
