From the Publisher
"With its intelligent combination of history, sociology, critical theory and close reading of a wide variety of texts, from the late Middle Ages to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Martin's book is an important contribution to Golden Age studies."
--Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
This is a richly suggestive and compelling study, well researched, eclectic in scope, and brimming with ideas and thoughtful (and thought-provoking) perspectives.
Martin provides a much-needed readjustment of readings and recovery of the sensuality of a period long dominated by a critical view that excluded non-normative sexualities (as well as gender studies and feminist approaches) from literary study.
--Emilie Bergmann, University of California, Berkeley
A lucid guide for experts and novices alike, this is a generous book, boldly conceived, and attentive to the peculiarities of erotic literature and its complex relations with social life.
--Steven Hutchinson, University of Wisconsin
