Om Innocence and Rapture
Focusing on works by Pater, Wilde, James, and Nabokov, Kevin Ohi explores the concept of the erotic child in Aestheticism. He compares the erotic child of these authors to the innocent child propogated by today's ideology, and argues that for these authors, the child served as an emblem for the ecstatic, erotic, and even queer possibilities of art.
