Female Perversions Summary


Female Perversions: The Temptations of Madame Bovary by Louise J. Kaplan

This book looks at our understanding of sexuality and gender roles, and the way that modern society distorts erotic expression. It dispels the myth that perversion is simply a quest for forbidden sexual pleasure, or the province of men alone. Readers are taken on a foray into the minds of men and women whose perversions preoccupy their every waking moment - and yet save them from being overwhelmed by anxiety, depression or psychosis. Drawing on examples from clinical case studies, literature and the love lives of novelists, the author argues that all perversions are products of gender stereotyping.
