Necrophilia Variations

A Literary Monograph

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Necrophilia Variations is a literary monograph on the erotic attraction to corpses and death. It consists of a series of texts that, like musical phrases, take up the theme and advance it by means of repetition, contrast, and variation. To love someone dead is merely nostalgia, but to make love with someone dead is necrophilia, and this book is about that.

Although a work of fiction, Necrophilia Variations uses literary means to probe the psychopathology of sexual perversion. Eros, the book asks, is naturally drawn to beauty, and yet nothing would seem to be less inherently beautiful than a cadaver. How is it that a necrophile ends up confusing the two, or making the leap, such that he finds beauty in what most people would find repugnant? How does he come to desire that which would seem to be intrinsically undesirable?

Written in a style that ranges from the lugubrious to the ludicrous -- from purple prose to black humor -- Necrophilia Variations exhibits a world of depravity from the inside out.
