Story of Venus & Tannhauser
Aubrey Beardsley (a. & illus.); John Glassco (intro.). Left unfinished at Aubrey Beardsley’s death, this retelling of the old legend is a witty & ingeniously decadent account of Tannhauser’s visit to the glamorous pleasure palace of Venus. The volume combines Beardsley’s fascination with abandoning oneself to sexual pleasure & his love of the artificial & exotic. A censored version of the novella was originally published in “The Yellow Book” as “Under the Hill,” & an unexpurgated edition was privately printed in 1907. This Wordsworth Classic Erotica unexpurgated edition contains Beardsley’s remarkable illustrations, & was completed in 1959 by the poet John Glassco.
