Re: General Literary History: Anais Nin

I have received a warning from Kate, and I said that I was happy to make all future posts in line with your site conventions on re-enactment. I write a great deal about film and literature reenactments so that should be no problem.-Ron

Re: General Literary History: Anais Nin

A reenactor is: a person who participates in reenactments of historical events. A person who writes a diary, as extensively as Anias Nin did, reenacts their life every time she puts pen to paper. A diarist is, by definition, a reenactor. I have no trouble with this concept. What's your view?-Ron
