Description

Guillaume Apollinaire's account of a 15-year-old budding libertine's summer on the farm, where he congresses with maids, servants, passersby, an aunt and finally a sister, while outside the manor peasants go for creatures of the four-legged variety, is a classic unparalleled in its content, brevity and wit. Apollinaire ranks among the most renowned French poets, dying of the Spanish flu after suffering grave injury in WWI. He's said to have been the curator of forbidden works at the Bibliothhque Nationale, studying intently the classics of 19th Century Erotica before trying his own hand at the material, and this book was among the very first titles Olympia published.
