9780370005423: The Body's Rapture

Originally banned in the United States. "If some parts of The Body's Rapture were printed alone, they could be justly characterized as aphrodisiacal if not pornographic. But the book as a whole is a very different and highly superior kettle of fish. Its original French title, Psyche, shows that Author Romains' intention was not fleshly. Though this book is a glorification of the flesh it is also a mystical sublimation of it-a kind of exegetical. philosophical, psychological Song of Songs. For plain readers there is also a plain story." (Time Magazine)
