Abstract

Paradoxically, if the female body is overexposed, female sexuality is unspeakable. ose who, in the long bourgeois century, intended to vio- late the agreed prohibition, found a space to do so in archeology. At the intersection of Symbolistic and Parnassian writing, in 1896 Pierre Louÿs published Aphrodite: mœurs antiques, which, along the lines of Flaubert’s Salammbô (1862), develops the tradition of the antiquarian novel and begins to create a renewed and vivid erotic imagery. is work also ini- tiates the search for a language capable of narrating and illustrating sex- uality and the female body.
