For more than half my life I knew the lyrics to the Velvet Underground’s song “Venus in Furs” without real awareness what Wanda and Gregor were up to.
I’d never cared much for Venus in Furs the first literary expression of female domination. But how can a masochistic man not read the famous novel that prompted creation of the term masochism.
Not long ago Sardax published and illustrated and freshly translated edition of Venus in Furs. It is a book any admirer of Sardax’s work should be pleased to own.
More important that the illustrations is Sardax’s translation. The lucid, graceful prose has transformed my feelings about the novel.
Instead of scraping the web for free but crappy thrills you should consider buying a copy of Sardax’s Venus in Furs.
