Serverin von Kusiemski is so infatuated with Wanda von Dunajew that he asks that she treats him as a slave. He convinces her and signs agreements to that effect, but all does not turn out well. The novel draws themes and character inspiration from Sacher-Masoch's own life, and incorporates many autobiographical details. First published in 1870, Venus in Furs is possibly the best known of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's works and it's notoriety helped immortalize him with the coining of masochism.
A tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between Catherine, a dull but sweet daughter, and her brilliant domineering father as Catherine slowly develops maturity and independence. "Everybody likes Washington Square, even the denigrators of Henry James," wrote critic Donald Hall.
The story follows the development of Molly Gibson and her new stepsister Cynthia into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford. It offers an ironic critique of mid-Victorian society disguised as a nostalgic evocation of village life.
