An Erotic Obsession
by Philip Raworth (Author)
Buy for $3.99 Excerpt

The novel recounts the passionate love affair between a professor and his Italian student against a background of academic intrigues, jealousies and betrayals. The novel explores the depths of their erotic obsession for each other and the problems posed by its adulterous and intense character and its defiance of the ethical code of the university.
Betrayed by one of the professor's students, they are forced to part, and the novel describes the extremities of their reaction to this brutal rupture as they seek happiness or oblivion with other partners. The hero's success in the administrative battles at the university bring with it the knowledge that power is not all and hides its own disillusion. The heroine tries to settle for a marriage to the heir of a Spanish dukedom, but her own feelings and the wiles of her uncle, the Cardinal, bring her back to her lost love.
