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)
