In , after the failure in of the British obscenity trial of Lady Chatterley's Lover , Mayflower Books, run by Gareth Powell , published an uncensored paperback version of Fanny Hill. The police became aware of the edition a few days before publication, after spotting a sign in the window of the Magic Shop in Tottenham Court Road in London, run by Ralph Gold.

An officer went to the shop, bought a copy and delivered it to Bow Street magistrate Sir Robert Blundell, who issued a search warrant. At the same time, two officers from the vice squad visited Mayflower Books in Vauxhall Bridge Road to determine whether copies of the book were kept on the premises. They interviewed the publisher, Gareth Powell, and took away the five copies there. The police returned to the Magic Shop and seized copies of the book, and in December Ralph Gold was summonsed under section 3 of the Obscenity Act.

By then, Mayflower had distributed 82, copies of the book, but it was Gold rather than Mayflower or Fanny Hill who was being tried, although Mayflower covered the legal costs.

The trial took place in February The defence argued that Fanny Hill was a historical source book and that it was a joyful celebration of normal non-perverted sex—bawdy rather than pornographic.

The prosecution countered by stressing one atypical scene involving flagellation, and won. Mayflower decided not to appeal. The Mayflower case highlighted the growing disconnect between the obscenity laws and the social realities of late s Britain, and was instrumental in shifting views to the point where in an uncensored version of Fanny Hill was again published in Britain.

This edition was also immediately banned for obscenity in Massachusetts, after a mother complained to the state's Obscene Literature Control Commission.

Massachusetts that Fanny Hill did not meet the Roth standard for obscenity. Justice Douglas cited 5 primary defenses of the ruling:. The art historian Johann Joachim Winckelmann recommended the work in a letter for "its delicate sensitivities and noble ideas" expressed in "an elevated Pindaric style".

Many editions of this book have contained new illustrations, often depicting more of the novel's sexual content. Distributors of the novel such as John Crosby were imprisoned for "exhibiting [not selling] to sundry persons a certain lewd and indecent book, containing very lewd and obscene pictures or engravings". Sellers of the novel such as Peter Holmes were imprisoned and charged that they "did utter, publish and deliver to one [name]; a certain lewd, wicked, scandalous, infamous and obscene print, on paper, was contained in a certain printed book then and there uttered, [2] published and delivered by him said Peter Holmes intitled "Memoirs of a Woman Of Pleasure" to manifest corruption and subversion of youth, and other good citizens None of the story's scenes have been exempt from illustration.

Illustrations of this novel vary from the first homosexual experience to the flagellation scene. Editions of the book have frequently featured illustrations, but they have often been of poor quality. Frances "Fanny" Hill is a rich Englishwoman in her middle age, who leads a life of contentment with her loving husband Charles and their children.

The novel consists of two long letters which appear as volumes I and II of the original edition addressed by Fanny to an unnamed acquaintance, who is only identified as 'Madam. Fanny's account begins with the loss of her parents at the age of 14 followed by a journey to London, and ends with her union with Charles about five years later.

The intermediate narrative is filled with many sexual experiences, which are described with vividness, whimsy, wit and humour.

Metaphors and similies are used to describe sexual organs and activities. The plot was described as 'operatic' by John Hollander , who said that "the book's language and its protagonist's character are its greatest virtues. The first letter begins with a short account of Fanny's impoverished childhood in a village in Lancashire.

She loses her parents to smallpox, arrives in London to look for domestic work, and gets lured into a brothel. She sees a sexual encounter between an ugly older couple and another between a young attractive couple, and participates in a lesbian encounter with Phoebe, a bisexual prostitute. A customer, Charles, induces Fanny to escape. She loses her virginity to Charles and becomes his lover.

Charles is sent away by deception to the South Seas, and Fanny is driven by desperation and poverty to become the kept woman of a rich merchant named Mr H—.

After enjoying a brief period of stability, she sees Mr H— have a sexual encounter with her own maid, and goes on to seduce Will the young footman of Mr H— as an act of revenge. She is discovered by Mr H— as she is having a sexual encounter with Will.

After being abandoned by Mr H—, Fanny becomes a prostitute for wealthy and discerning clients in a pleasure-house run by Mrs Cole. This marks the end of the first letter. The second letter begins with a rumination on the tedium of writing about sex and the difficulty of driving a middle course between vulgar language and "mincing metaphors and affected circumlocutions".

Fanny then describes her adventures in the house of Mrs Cole, which include a public orgy, an elaborately orchestrated bogus sale of her "virginity" to a rich dupe called Mr Norbert, and a sado-masochistic session with a man involving mutual flagellation with birch-rods. These are interspersed with narratives which do not involve Fanny directly; for instance, three other girls in the house Emily, Louisa and Harriett describe their own losses of virginity, and the nyphomaniac Louisa seduces the immensely endowed but imbecilic "good-natured Dick".

Nussbaum describes the girls in Mrs Cole's brothel as "'a little troop of love' who provide compliments, caresses, and congratulation to their fellow whores' erotic achievements". This was removed from several later editions According to literary critic Thomas Holmes, Fanny and Mrs Cole see the homosexual act thusly: This phase of Fanny's life brings about her intellectual development, and leaves her wealthy when her lover dies of a sudden cold.

Soon after, she has a chance encounter with Charles, who has returned as a poor man to England after being shipwrecked. Fanny offers her fortune to Charles unconditionally, but he insists on marrying her. The prose includes long sentences with many subordinate clauses.

Its morality is conventional for the time, in that it denounces sodomy, frowns upon vice and approves of only heterosexual unions based upon mutual love.

There are numerous scholars who claim that Fanny's name refers to a woman's vagina. However, others dispute this interpretation, positing that 18th century dictionaries do not define "fanny" in this way.

Louisa brings the boy in anyway, as Dick's functioning physical state supersedes his poor mental one. This scene also leads into an issue within the text of rape for both Dick and Louisa and how the possible label of rape is removed by resistance transitioning into pleasure.

Her sexual development contains three life stages: Fanny sees the phallus as both an object of terror and of delight. McCracken relates her changing view of the phallus to Burke's theory of the sublime and beautiful.

Patricia Spacks, a scholar, discusses how Fanny has been previously deprived by her rural environment of what she can understand as real experience, and how she welcomes the whores' efforts to educate her.

Even though these feelings may have been replaced or forgotten, she still reflects on her past: Andrea Haslanger argues in her dissertation how the use of first-person narrative in the 18th-century "undermines, rather than secures, the individual" in classic epistolary novels like Roxanna, Evelina, Frankenstein, and specifically Fanny Hill.

Haslanger claims that "the paradox of pornographic narration is that it mobilizes certain aspects of the first person the description of intimate details while eradicating others the expression of disagreement or resistance " With sexual acts being viewed heavily as taboo within 18th-century England, Fanny Hill strayed far away from the norm in comparison to other works of its time.

A large portion of books that focused on the idea of sex were written in the form of conduct novels: One example of this can be seen in Samuel Richardson's conduct novel Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded , in which the character of Pamela is able to resist sexual temptation, thus maintaining her virtue and being rewarded in the end with a prosperous life.

However, Fanny Hill was widely considered to be the first work of its time to focus on the idea of sexual deviance being an act of pleasure, rather than something that was simply shameful. This can be seen through Fanny's character partaking in acts that would normally be viewed as deplorable by society's standards, but then is never punished for them.

In fact, Fanny is ultimately able to achieve her own happy ending when she is able to find Charles again, marrying him and living in a life of wealth. This can be viewed in sharp contrast to a work like Pamela, where sexual acts are heavily avoided for the sake of maintaining virtue.

Meanwhile, within Fanny Hill , normally deplorable acts can be conducted with little to no consequence.
