    Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, the book involved here, is typical. I have 'stomached' past cases for almost 10 years without much outcry. Though I am not known to be a purist—or a shrinking violet—this book is too much even for me. It is important that the Court has refused to declare it obscene and thus affords it further circulation. Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure. By: John Cleland () One of the most controversial and censored books in English literature, Fanny Hill is regarded as the first original English prose pornography. Notorious for its vivid depiction of sexual exploits in all possible forms, the novel digs up the most thrilling erotic fantasies 5/5(6).

      Memoirs of the Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman () is William Godwin's biography of his late wife Mary published in the nineteenth century and sparingly even today, Memoirs is most often viewed as a source for information on Wollstonecraft. However, with the rise of interest in biography and autobiography as important genres in and of themselves.   The writers on this list—the pioneers of a modern day movement, the Queen of Rock’n’Roll, a trend-setting superstar in film, music, and fashion—exemplify Black History as evergreen, ubiquitous, and at once individual. These powerful, personal memoirs penned by eight brilliant Black women paint an all-encompassing portrait of lived experiences, personal loss, survival, wild success, .

      Fanny Hill, shrouded in controversy for most of its more than year life, and banned from publication in the United States until , was once considered immoral and without literary merit, even earning its author a jail sentence for tale of a naïve young prostitute in bawdy eighteenth-century London who slowly rises to respectability, the novel–and its popularity.   This is a great book for close literary examination. There is a ton to write about and it's an exciting read! For introduction courses on sexuality this novel is a short touch on issues that are expanded on in other pieces. Although the title implies Memoirs this is more of a single story about the experience of a women entering the sex industry/5(5).
