Louÿs, Pierre: Aphrodite, v.1 29 Feb 2008.

An erotic novel.

Pierre Louys: Aphrodite: Moeurs Antiques (1896)
Translated from the French by Willis L. Parker.


From Sacred-texts.com:
“Pierre Louys published his first novel, Aphrodite (Mœurs Antiques) in 1896. It was a bestseller, selling 350,000 copies, sealing Louys’ reputation as a popular author of erotic literature.
Set in Ptolemaic Alexandria, … Aphrodite is as much a love story as a crime story. Louys’ decadent, sensual vision of Egypt in classical times is a jeweled setting for a story of transgressive love. The sculptor Demetrios, the favorite of Queen Berenice, falls for a well-to-do courtesan, Chrysis. Much of the story is set in the world of the courtesans, a realm of beauty, luxury, sapphic indulgence, and some dark shadows as well.”
