I found this on my cousin's bookshelf with I was but a wee thing, stole it. A classic of Victorian erotica, it's the story of Jack who gets jilted by his fiancee and takes revenge on her, her maid, and others in a lovingly described soundproofed room with equisite details of torture and pleasure. Cleis Press is keeping this old classic in print!

13 of 16 people found the following review helpful By TammyJo Eckhart VINE VOICE on May 15, 2006
Format: Paperback
It is a common stereotype that Victorian [...] was all caning, servants, and beaten children. Granted those are common themes but this collection shows more variety than that. We find old men and rejected men stealing innocence and women who have cast aside the sexual mores of their time to become preedators themselves. There are some hierarchical situations but most of the action takes place between social and age peers. I've removed one star from my rating because there are two important things missing from this book. The first are simple introductions to the pieces; even if we don't know the author we can know when it written and which country it was created in. Victorianism was fairly wide=spread for several decades but how it played out varied. Second the pieces need to be identified when they are only sections from a larger work or a series of stories. This would enable those who find the writting exciting to find other Victorian porn.

Years ago I owned a few paper-backed books written in the Victorian Era. All of which written by the author: Anonymous. I'm not certain whether the author penned his name as Anonymous, or that there were others and a group of them fell under the assumption Anonymously.
All of the books had a similarity of verse and the style very constant throughout. To me, the author seemed as one person, and his writings very concise and exact in descriptions. This book - Man with a Maid: And Other Victorian Stories - is one example of those I owned years ago. Even after many years I haven't read these novels, I was happy to conclude my own satisfaction was renewed, and recommend this, as well as the entire line of Anonymous writings.

It took me about four day to read it but I enjoy every bit of it. From page 1 to the last page it was good.
