The Artistic Censoring of Sexuality
by Susan Mooney
Publisher: Ohio State University Press 2008
Number of pages: 340
Susan Mooney extensively examines four modernist and postmodernist novels that prompted in their day harsh external censorship because of their sexual content -- Ulysses, Lolita, Time of Silence, and Russian Beauty. She shows how motifs of censorship, with all its restrictions, pressures, rules, judgments, and forms of negation, became artistically embedded in the novels' plots, characters, settings, tropes, and themes.

This work is an endeavour to apply some of the methods of psychoanalysis to literature. It attempts to read closely between the lines. It applies some principles in interpreting literature with a scrutiny hitherto scarcely deemed permissible.
