Journal Issue Pages: 196 Volume 43, Number 2 Published: April 2019 An issue of Eighteenth-Century Life
Censorship, sexuality in fiction, and the unabashed pleasure of both protagonists and readers are the themes of Fanny Hill Now, a volume of essays written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1966 Supreme Court decision allowing publication of John Cleland’s Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure ? known the world over as Fanny Hill. Contributors trace provocative paths of breadth and depth in the study of Cleland’s novel to reveal at once its salient role in eighteenth-century prose and its evolving global impact.
