A Monumental Edition of a Smutty WorkNov. 10 2008
- Published on Amazon.com
This brief proto-novel is given the full scholarly treatment in this critical edition; imagine a 450-page book devoted to one episode of "South Park." There's an English translation with the Latin on facing pages, and a wealth of commentary. S&M is a coarse, scatological work, but it underscores the fact that prose fiction has always been a rebellious, subversive genre.
