Had so much fun filming this with Adam Wilson, on location in and around Aberystwyth.
This BA Option module considers erotic texts and images from the Romantic period. How does Romanticism construct the "obscene"? What is the political resonance of terms such as "vulgar" or "depraved" in literary reviews of the era? What is the relationship between pornography and political satire? How does "obscene" art seek to destabilize elite culture? What is the literary value of Romantic bawdy? How is "pleasure" constituted by Romantic texts?
