A Study of the Sexual Imagination
This pathbreaking compilation, long out of print, is a survey of sexual fantasies from early folklore to the bawdy tales of the prolific Victorians, to a very modern version of “Little Red Riding Hood.” Here, among other selections, are vignettes from Poggio, Rabelais, and the “Divine” Aretino, instructive dialogues from the seventeenth-century Whore’s Rhetoric, nineteenth-century flights of invention like Gynecocracy, Prince Cherrytop, and Les Tableaux Vivants, and a “superman” fantasy by Alfred Jarry—excerpts from the entire spectrum of Western erotica.
