The Songs of Bilitis

The Songs of Bilitis

English | February 18, 2010 | ISBN: 0486477371 | EPUB | 192 Pages | 12.1 MB

These passionate verses were published in Paris in 1894 as the lost works of a disciple of Sappho. Between their open celebration of lesbian love and the eventual revelation of their true authorship-the verses actually were written by French novelist and poet Pierre Lou?s-they became a succ¨¨s de scandale. Although debunked as a work of antiquity, The Songs of Bilitis remains a classic of erotic literature.

More than 160 sensual illustrations by the famed Hungarian-born American artist Willy Pog¨¢ny grace the pages of this lovely keepsake edition. Reprinted from a sensitive translation of the original French edition by Alvah C. Bessie, it features extensive annotations. Contains adult material.
