Description
 
Alan Haynes (au). This fully illustrated study examines sexual behavior in the Elizabethan age, approached through the literature & literary personalities of the period. Builds up a vivid picture of the sexual experiences of Elizabethans at all levels of society, from the ‘Virgin Queen’ herself, who slept alone despite rumors that she was  sexually promiscuous, to characters such as Moll Cutpurse, a gutsy female transvestite who shocked & amused generations of Londoners. There is a full examination of the Elizabethan court, which ‘seethed with clandestine sexual activity’, & chapters on love & marriage, prostitution, homosexuality & sexual diseases. Illustrated.
