The Kiss in History

£3.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

The act of kissing has been divided into many different categories - lustful and adulterous, valedictory, mystical or respectful - but, just as with other gestures, its changing nuances across societies can be hard to pin down. Ten eminent scholars contribute to this pioneering collection of cultural studies, analysing kisses at specific points in history from the German Reformation to the First World War and using evidence from sources as divergent as religious texts, popular prints, court depositions, periodicals, diaries and poetry.
