This provocative collection of essays depicts the cultural and societal kinks of the British because the truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to love. Eight essays chronicle the pleasures and perils of the flesh, sharing secrets from the days of the Anglo-Saxons, medieval courtly love traditions, diabolical Tudor escapades—including those of Anne Boleyn and Mary Queen of Scots—the Crown and Succession of female monarchs, and the ‘prudish’ Victorian Era. This scholarly yet accessible all-female project brings to light the myriad varieties of sexual and cultural mores which shaped history and the effect on women and gender roles into the early twentieth century.
