Henry Miller (26 December 1891 – 7 June 1980) was an American writer known for his novels. Many of his novels were partly autobiographical and used a stream of consciousness style. His most famous works are Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, Tropic of Capricorn and The Rosy Crucifixion. They are based on his experiences in New York and Paris. They were all banned in the United States until the 1960s because they contained bad language. He also wrote travel memoirs and literary criticism and painted watercolors.
