Arguably, Nin could be considered the founder of modern Erotic Poetry. (I say “modern” because Ovid would hold that title with the ancients.)

“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

―Anaïs Nin, “The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934” (Mariner Books, 1969)
