Overview

The Wordsworth Erotica Collection includes some of

the finest Victorian and Edwardian examples of the

genre.

About this

book:

The Perfumed Garden is a

masterpiece of sensual and erotic delight that is ranked, with the

Kama Sutra, as one of the few great books on the

art of love.

This text of Sheikh Nefzaoui (al-Nefzawi's) classic

sixteenth-century work is the poetic translation by Sir Richard Burton,

and it celebrates the multifarious ways in which man and woman can come

together in joyful physical union.

Editorial Reviews

Libido
An explicit, but also consummately witty and graceful celebration of erotica...
Ben Trumble
The Park Street Press edition is the first illustrated reproduction of Burton's original translation. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. The Victorians did, even if they claimed they didn't. You won't be disappointed...

Meet the Author

Sir Richard F. Burton (1821-1890) was one of the greatest traveler-explorers of history, whose life has recently been chronicled both in biography (Captain Sir Richard Burton) and film (Mountains of the Moon). Famous as the translator of The 1001 Arabian Nights, Burton also searched for the headwaters of the Nile, and was the discoverer of the central lakes of Africa. Orientalist, prolific author, and member of the Royal Geographic Society, he was one of the most remarkable and controversial men of his century.

    Woefully Incomplete

    The editor of this edition of the classic Arabic has omitted several sections of the original, including the chapter on homosexual practices. In undertaking publishing such frank and open text, it is ironic that he should shy from this , or any section of the original.
