1919. Today, some recognize Cabell as one of the first contemporary writers from the South. He is also noted for his unique blending of classic myths and legends with his own imagination and is considered a pioneer of fantasy writing. Jurgen is an epic fantasy voyage as well as an erotic fable. Cabell himself wrote: This fable is, as the world itself, a book wherein each man will find what his nature enables him to see; which gives us back each his own image; and which teaches us each the lesson that each of us desires to learn. The book was banned for decades because of its explicit content. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
