Format: Mass Market Paperback
Some of the editions of this book have `anonymous' authorship; ascription to Henden perhaps suggests recent liberalisation. It is one of the best examples of the Victorian (or pseudo-Victorian) novel dealing with `disciplinary' activity within a domestic situation, with an ultimately erotic purpose. The narrator, the master of the house thus addresses himself to his eponymous niece, describing his lust for her, and recording her somewhat disdainful treatment of his lustful advances. She has just returned from schooling and her teacher, Miss Atherton, connives with his lust, her aim in schooling being to prepare nubile young women for erotic chastisement and the satisfaction of the lusts of their menfolk. The cane is the master's instrument of choice, and Dorothea experiences it both in receiving and in giving, to her siblings. His excitable wife approves, enthusiastically. The book has the ethereal quality characteristic of the author, and although many may find this irritating, the action here is strong enough to make this less likely than with other works.

This is the same book as Dancing Fawns by the same author (word for word), only Elizabeth is now Dorothea...It is still a good book, though.

If you love words words words this is it ... 30 Nov. 2000
By Rudolf Spoerer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was strange to say the least. I have read some of Hendens other books but I think here he was getting paid by the word....
If you love Bronte or jane Austen then youll probably also love this book cause the author went out of his way to muddle the erotic scenes with strange strange thoughts .... By strange I mean flighty not erotic ...
Not my taste ,as you can tell, in erotic lit ....
