3.0 out of 5 stars Routine Victorian Style Erotica, 13 Nov. 2009
Clifford (Weymouth, Dorset, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Sacred Passions (Anonymous) (Paperback)
This is a strange book in some ways, since its beginning appears to mark it as the classic work of erotic literature known as 'Nunnery Tales'. However, it soon differs from that work, itself subjected to a variety of editions, and it becomes a catalogue of erotic intrigues, with more or less the same characters, in what is a routine manner for this genre. A mother and son escape detection by hiding in a nunnery in France, which is run by an abbot well known to the mother, and indeed to all of the females in the establishment, with whom he exercises considerable libidinous licence. They move on, and become involved in piracy with a ship's captain who has many an erotic tale to tell, in the manner of this genre. The style avoids offence in a way that is unusual in erotica, with nothing even vaguely extreme. The plot meanders, acquiring, deflowering and discarding young maidens as it goes, and finally reaches an inconclusive conclusion. Not one of the better examples of the genre.
