Marcuse, Ludwig. Obscene; The History of an Indignation. London, MacGibbon & Key, 1965. 327p.

This study of obscenity by a German professor (first published in 1962 by Paul List Verlag) centers around leading obscenity trials: Friedrich Schlegel's Lucinde (Jena, 1799), Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary (Paris, 1857), Arthur Schnitzler's Round Dance (Berlin, 1920), D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley (London, 1960), and Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer (Los Angeles, 1962). A chapter is also devoted to the crusade of Anthony Comstock and the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice. Marcuse describes Comstock as "a cross between Barnum and McCarthy."A final chapter en titled Seven Theses to Disarm Indignation gives the gist of the author's views on obscenity. --http://www.lib.siu.edu/cni/letter-m1.html [Feb 2005]
