Abstract:

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year that Sir Ian McKellen called #x93;a shocking tale of heroes and villains#x97;illuminating and upsetting in equal measure." The first production of Oscar Wilde's Salomé in 1918, with American exotic dancer Maud Allan dancing lead, ignited a firestorm in London spearheaded by Noel Pemberton Billing, a member of Parliament and self-appointed guardian of family values. Billing attacked Allan in the right-wing newspaper Vigilante as a member of the #x93;Cult of the Clitoris," a feminine version of the #x93;Cult of the Wilde," a catchall for the degeneracy and perversion he.
