Written in , Henry Miller describes us in The Colossus of Marusi his trip to the island of Corfu; to see his friend Lawrence Durrell; half way, like all his literature, between autobiography and surrealism, dream images and the most crude realism, this book tells his experience of the year that will pass in Greece and the Aegean islands, the friendships he will make and the revelation of his own life.

Beautiful and extraordinary work of travel, it is an inner and outer discovery, a challenge for the agonizing civilization of the West and a song, in the best Whitmanian style, to the dignity of the earth, to the spiritual ascent and to the exceptional friendship of man like Durrell , Seferis or the incomparable Katsimbalis. We are, without a doubt, before an extraordinary book, before literature with capital letters. His work is composed of semi-autobiographical novels, in which the crude, sensual and unobtrusive tone aroused a series of controversies within a Puritan United States that Miller wanted to stigmatize denouncing the moral hypocrisy of American society, criticizing in passing the future of human existence, stripping of its cynicism and multiple contradictions.

Censored for his provocative and rebellious style and content in relation to the literary creation of his time, his works influenced notably the so-called Beat Generation.
