9780140447811: Venus in Furs (Penguin Classics)

'Venus in Furs' describes the obsessions of Severin von Kusiemski, a European nobleman who desires to be enslaved to a woman. Severin finds his ideal of voluptuous cruelty in the merciless Wanda von Dunajew. This is a passionate and powerful portrayal of one man's struggle to enlighten and instruct himself and others in the realm of desire. Published in 1870, the novel gained notoriety and a degree of immortality for its author when the word "masochism" - derived from his name - entered the vocabulary of psychiatry. This remains a classic literary statement on sexual submission and control.

Book Description Penguin Classics, 2000. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 'You're aroused my most cherished fantasy . . . to be the slave of a woman, a beautiful woman, whom I love, whom I worship-!'A shocking exploration of masochism, narcissism, and sexual power, Venus in Furs brought instant notoriety to its author for its unprecedented portrayal of a man who passionately makes himself the slave of the woman he loves. Sacher-Masoch freely mixes philosophy and pornography with the story of Severin von Kusiemski, a European nobleman who finds his ideal of voluptuous cruelty under the tutelage of the merciless beauty Wanda von Dunajew.More than a lurid tale of sexual obsession and perversion, Venus in Furs is a daring successor to the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Pioneering in its revelations about the pain of love and the love of pain, Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece remains a classic literary statement on sexual submission and control.
