about

First published in 1908, this book contains seven stories written by Pierre Louÿs, including: "Woman And Puppet", "The New Pleasure","Lêda","Immortal Love","The Artist Triumphant", and "The Hill Of Horse". Pierre Louÿs (1870 - 1925) was a French writer and poet most famous for the inclusion of lesbian and classical themes in his works. During the 1890s, Louÿs became good friends with Oscar Wilde, with Wilde even dedicating his "Salomé" to Louÿs. He began working on his first erotic stories when he was 18, and also became interested in the Parnassian and Symbolist schools of writing at this time. Other notable work by this author include: "The Songs of Bilitis" (1926), "The adventures of King Pausole" (1901), and "Archipelago" (1906). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of erotic literature.
