Overview

CSF Publishing's Classic Erotica Collection includes title's carefully updated and corrected from the original text, and features new enhancements such as the author's biography and bibliography, and illustrations. ABOUT THE BOOK: “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
