    One thought on “Les Aventures du Roi Pausole”

    1. Pierre Louÿs's The Adventures of King Pausole is one of those lighthearted works about sex that come from a century ago and which seem so dated today. It is amusing that with all that coupling going on, there is no mention about children. Are they found in cabbage patches? Were they delivered by the stork? It is such a male perspective in which women could not possibly desire anything from the sexual act different from that which men desire. Hah! As if!I am amazed that Louys was able to parlay [...]

    2. Hilarious and provocative, though nowhere near as filthy as the notorious She-Devils. Pierre's outrageous sexual mores still underlie the action, but they're deployed with a classy Balzacky approach-- still obscene, but witty and suggestive rather than explicit. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys ribald tales like Balzac's Droll Stories or Rabelais, as well as anybody who has an opinion (favorable or otherwise) about the writing of De Sade.
