Sent: 15 October 2012 11:26 Dear List Members, I'm writing a paper on the pornographic serial, The Pearl (1879-1880), and was wondering if anyone has come across any essays or books which analyse this text. I'm particularly intrigued by its "nursery rhymes" and evocations of sweetness, but any references you can come up with would be helpful. So far, I have come across brief references in: Lisa Z. Sigel, Governing pleasures: pornography and social change in England, and Rachel Potter, "Obscene Modernism and the Trade in Salacious Books", Modernism/modernity (16) 2009. All the best, Duc Duc Dau English and Cultural Studies University of Western Australia Email: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> http://www.uwa.edu.au/people/duc.dau
