This book is a nice introduction for the layperson to the history of ertotic art. It gives the background, but doesn't go over the average person's head. Some very nice art in here, though i think most of the poetry and some of the prose wasn't all that great. i do wish that lucie-smith had put the art of those he talked about in the text together, so that the reader can see an example of what he is discussing.
