When Leo Tolstoy's "The Kreutzer Sonata" was banned from distribution through the mail (except for first class) in 1890, New York street vendors began selling it from pushcarts carrying large signs reading "Suppressed!" In 1961, the United States Supreme Court pondered whether D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was lewd or literary, but in 1969, the novel was required reading in many college literature courses. Changing sexual mores have moved many formerly forbidden books out of locked cabinets and into libraries and classrooms. "Literature Suppressed on Sexual Grounds, Revised Edition" examines the issues underlying the suppression of more than 100 works deemed sexually obscene. The 15 entries new to this edition include "America" by Jon Stewart, "Sex" by Madonna, and many more. Also included are updates to entries such as "Forever" by Judy Blume, and more. New and updated entries include: "Alice on the Outside" (Phyllis Naylor); "An American Tragedy" (Theodore Dreiser); "The Arabian Nights" (Sir Richard Burton, trans.) ; "The Art of Love" (Ovid); "The Buffalo Tree" (Adam Rapp); "Forever" (Judy Blume); "How to Make Love Like a Pom Star" (Jenna Jameson); "Jude the Obscure" (Thomas Hardy); "Lady Chatterley's Lover" (D. H. Lawrence); "Lolita" (Vladimir Nabokov); "November" (Gustave Flaubert); "Outlaw Representation" (Richard Meyer); "Peyton Place" (Grace Metalious); "Rabbit, Run" (John Updike); "Sari Says" (Sari Locker); "Studs Lonigan: A Trilogy" (James T. Farrell); "La Terre" (Emile Zola); "Ulysses" (James Joyce); "The Wild Palms" (William Faulkner); and, "Women on Top" (Nancy Friday).
