Firbank, Ronald: The Flower beneath the Foot, v.1 16 April 2008.

Ronald Firbank: The Flower Beneath the Foot: Being a Record of the Early Life of St. Laura De Nazianzi and the Times in Which She Lived.
(1923)

A good-humoured blend of decadence, eroticism and satire. This study of snobbery in a minor royal court serves to illustrate the absurdity of most [all?] human behaviour.

It also contains some memorable dialogue, e.g.:

“Ah my dear, I never could resist a mon!” Mrs Bedley exclaimed.
Mrs Montgomery sighed.
“Once,” she murmured meditatively, “men (those procurers of delights) engaged me utterly. ... I was their slave. . . .
Now. . . . One does not burn one’s fingers twice, Mrs Bedley.”

I found the text in the Internet Archive. It was full of OCR errors. I hope that I have corrected them but, if you spot one, please tell me so that I can revise it.
