A Literary History of Subversion and Control

Katherine Inglis, Matthew Fellion

The 25 contentious publications discussed in this book illustrate how the censorship of literature has developed in the United Kingdom and United States, which both claim an ancient tradition of free expression. Ranging from medieval translations of the Bible to Marjane Satrapi’s recent Persepolis, they include works now considered masterpieces, such as Joyce’s Ulysses, which were banned because they challenged the orthodoxies of their time.
