ID: 7607711

During the Edo period in eighteenth-century Japan, erotic paintings and prints known today as "shunga "were popular among both men and women. Yet, prior to Tim Screech's definitive study, "Sex and the Floating World," no one had attempted to situate these overtly sexual images within the contexts of the sexual, gender, or class tensions of the time. Newly revised and expanded, this second edition of "Sex and the Floating World" examines how and why these images were made and used. Along the way, Screech illuminates a provocative world of sexual fantasy in Edo Japan.'With concern, proportion, wit and a bit of levity, the author of this authoritative and invaluable contribution to scholarship has given us the book for which we have long waited."--"Japan"" Times""Screech provides a fascinating and informative introduction to the social and sexual habits of pre-modern Japan, copiously illustrated and full of witty anecdotes as well as solid scholarly research. The ideal bedtime read?"--"Insight Japan" Sex and the Floating World: Erotic Images in Japan 1700-1820 - Second Edition Screech, Timon, Reaktion Books

Screech, Timon

Title:

Sex and the Floating World: Erotic Images in Japan 1700-1820 - Second Edition

ISBN:

1861894325

This book offers an entirely new assessment of the genre of Japanese paintings and prints today known as "shunga," Recent changes in Japanese law have at last enabled erotic images to be published without fear of prosecution, and many picture books have since appeared in Japan. There has, however, been very little attempt to situate the imagery within the contexts of sexuality, gender or power. Questions of aesthetics, and of whether "shunga" deserve a place in the official history of Japanese art, have dominated, and the question of the use of these images has been avoided. Timon Screech seeks to re-establish "shunga" in its proper historical contexts of culture and creativity. "Sex and the Floating World" opens up for us the strange world of sexual fantasy in the Edo culture of eighteenth-century Japan, and investigates the tensions in class and gender of those who made - and made use of - "shunga,"
