Frances Wilson  9 REVIEW REVIEW Literary Seductions Compulsive Writers and Diverted Readers 109 Sive sexual relationships Frances Wilson imbues astute literary criticism with raging hormones For Antis Nin and Henry Miller Laura Riding and Robert Graves and WB and George Yeats among others bo. I enjoyed the introduction and the first two chapters but I couldn t get into Robert Graves Laura Riding or Osip Nadezhda Mandelstam The analysis seemed disorganized and circular which didn t do justice to what I am sure were fascinating relationships It might have helped had I known something of the writers work as I did of Anais Nin Henry Miller albeit not much I should ve known my reading would be doomed however from the moment in the introduction where Wilson declares that she will not be writing about the type of seduction as that between Elizabeth Barrett Robert Browning when that in particular was the type for which I had picked up the book since it is one familiar to me my husband and I first met through our web journals pre blogging Unfortunately Wilson went off in another direction which I had little interest in following

Frances Wilson  9 REVIEW REVIEW Literary Seductions Compulsive Writers and Diverted Readers 109 Dies and books became interchangeable Examining the explosive collision of reading writing and desire in these relationships Literary Seductions is for anyone who's ever been seduced by a good rea. Clearly defined sections that explored different angles of the extreme relationships that can arise between writers and readersInteresting because I knew very little about the main literary figures mentioned although for a subject so passionate to those invovled I found this book itself drifted into dull repetition at timesThere was also that length sort of introduction which annoys me where it gives a brief overview of everything that the book will cover and leaves me wondering why I should bother reading on

Although I enjoyed the argument of the book and found the writing compelling I felt there was a lack of attention or maybe a problematic attention paid to gender While there was never a point that specifically caught my eye I came away from this feeling like these women were generally on the crazy side while the men involved were treated much sympathetically Perhaps this betrays some of my own discomfort with gender as treated by psychoanalytic theory as it honestly is of an impression than a complaint about a passage or aspect of the argumentThat said this is an enjoyable book and reads much like a popular study than an academic tome which is a good thing The research is certainly there it just doesn t dominate the reading to make it inaccessible I would say that if you enjoy any of the authors covered you should pick this up regardless of how many courses you ve had in critical theory I ve heard that good criticism should make you want to read the author under study and I have to say that this work introduced me to Osip and Nadezhda Mandelstam and their Russian contemporaries authors new to me Likewise it made me want to go back and read Anais Nin so all in all despite my misgivings this was a strong book and a good foray into academic writing for someone who has left a lot of it behind
