Originally published in 1966 and now recognized as a classic, Norman O. Brown's meditation on the condition of humanity and its long fall from the grace of a natural, instinctual innocence is available once more for a new generation of readers. Love's Body is a continuation of the explorations begun in Brown's famous Life Against Death. Rounding out the trilogy is Brown's brilliant Apocalypse and/or Metamorphosis.

this book is difficult to review -- a bunch of excerpts from other books, you have to read it to understand. Norman O Brown was a brilliant grumpy old man who probably singlehandedly changed the way a lot of people think about culture. definitely not standard issue mainstream stuff. Read full review
