Glyn, Elinor: Three Weeks. V 1. 16 January 2013

Elinor Glyn's risque masterpiece, Three Weeks (1907) tells of an young Englishman's brief but passionate affair with the exotic and mysterious "Mme Zalenska", and its consequences.

A popular romantic novel of that era, in which a single young man has an affair with a married woman, was definitely hot stuff, and the book was condemned as immoral in some sections of the US.

It was made into a very successful movie in 1924, with Eileen Pringle as "Mme Zalenska".

This edition uses the Gutenberg text, which needed only a few fixes (mostly hard returns in mid-sentence). I created a cover incorporating a publicity still from the 1924 movie showing Eileen Pringle draped over a tiger skin, a table of contents, and, for fun, added the famous but anonymous little ditty:

Would you like to sin
With Elinor Glyn
On a tiger skin
Or would you prefer
To err with her
On another fur?

This is one of the books which S J Perelman re-read for his "Cloudland Revisited" series of pieces, entitled "Tuberoses and Tigers".

It's probably in good company then, because both Frankenstein and Dracula (among others I'm sure) were likely considered by some to be immoral and not fit to be read as well.

Sorry for the duplicate posting. I don't know how it happened. I had just clicked once on the post button.
