Erotic Tales of the Victorian Age

(1998)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Despite rigid moral codes, some nineteenth-century writers flaunted convention by producing erotica published by underground houses and distributed widely, much to the chagrin of religious and political leaders of the Victorian Age. And while today it seems that writing about sexuality is completely uninhibited, it pales in comparison to the steamy and graphic yet romantically inviting and colorful works authored many years ago.

Erotic Tales of the Victorian Age includes selections from the spicy "Eveline" by Anonymous, the story of a resourceful young woman who enjoys teasing various men by letting her hands wander; "My Secret Life" by "Walter", which explores the author's carnal travellog; the lusty "Rosa Fielding" by Anonymous; "Therese Raquin" by Emile Zola; "My Life and Loves" by Frank Harris; the infamous "Venus in India" by Charles Devereaux, describing the author's sexual exploits as a member of the British Army; "The Perfumed Garden" by Sir Richard Burton, which reads like a Victorian Joy of Sex; tantalizing extracts from Dracula by Bram Stoker, and more.
