Clandestine Classics Takes Classics to Erotics

For those of us who love classic literature and even those who don’t, but understand the significance of keeping original works, original, you are probably not going like the latest craze. Started by an epublisher Total E-Bound and called Clandestine Classics, they are rewriting the classics as erotic offerings to readers.

The epublisher has just launched a line of classics that are rated NC-17. From their website: “There is no doubting the fact that the classics remain an inspiration to writers, even today, with many complex and thought-provoking storylines. But if we are honest with ourselves haven’t we heard the same reserved tale told time and time again? Our collection of Clandestine Classics is about to change that. This is a collection of classics as they have never been seen before. The old fashioned pleasantries and timidity have all been stripped away, quite literally. You didn’t really think that these much loved characters only held hands and pecked cheeks did you? Come with us, as we embark on a breathtaking experience—behind the closed bedroom doors of our favourite, most-beloved British characters. Learn what Hemlock really thought of Hotson, what Mr Darcy really wanted to do to Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and unveil the sexy escapades of Mr Rochester and Jane Eyre. We’ll show you the scenes that you always wanted to see but were never allowed. Come on, you know you can’t resist…open the pages and delve inside.”

Claire Siemaszkiewicz, the company founder states: “I’ve often wondered whether the Bronte sisters, if they were alive today, would have gone down the erotic romance route. There’s a lot of underlying sexual tension in their stories.”

Their line of classics includes Jane Eyre, Sherlock Holmes and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The line has not been without it’s critics or it’s cheerleaders. However you feel about this turn of the literary license, it seems erotica in all it’s forms, past, present and future and re-written, is here to stay.
