Erotic literature: a connoisseur's guide
This essential sourcebook is the first guide to all literature covering erotic (but not pornographic or scatological) themes--prose and poetry, ancient and modern, published and unpublished--which deserve to be called classics. From Ovid to Erica Jong, this collection shows how eroticism--the joyfully erotic--crops up in a multitude of ways throughout world history and literature. Includes a glossary of erotic terms and a useful bibliography.
