A MIS LECTORAS... y al resto

“Amigos lectores que leerán este libro blog, | despójense de toda pasión | y no se escandalicen al leerlo |
no contiene mal ni corrupción; | es verdad que no encontrarán nada de perfección |
salvo en materia de reír; |
mi corazón no puede elegir otro sujeto | a la vista de la pena que los mina y los consume. |
Vale mejor tratar de reír que derramar lágrimas, | porque la risa es lo propio y noble del alma. Sean felices!
--François Rabelais (circa 1534) [english]

The Way of a Man with a Maid

[El modo de un hombre con una doncella]
wikipedia.org/The Way...

The underlying assumptions which Jack takes for granted, and which form the basis for the book's plot, are:
  • A man has the right to have sex with any woman he wants, at any time he wants, with or without her consent;
  • A woman rejecting a man's advances has committed a sin for which she deserves to be punished by being raped and subjected to particularly humiliating sexual acts
  • All women "want to be raped". However strong and persistent their protest and resistance, should the rapist ignore these protests and go on with his acts, they would (typically, on the moment of penetration) come to enjoy the sexual act enforced upon them. Afterwards, they would likely "come back for more".

The book has been described as having "a quirky sense of humour" and can be considered to be irreverent of the British class system prevailing at the time of writing - all women, be they servants or great ladies, are "equal" in having to submit to the narrator's every sexual whim.

The book's title is derived from the Bible's Book of Proverbs, where the wise King Solomon mentions "The Way of a Man with a Maid" as one of the "things which are too wonderful for me, yea, which I know not" [1]. The ancient king's wonderment is manifestly not shared by the arrogantly self-assured Victorian narrator.
