Taboo words are the subject of this book. Extending Freud's study, the author traces the psychic origins of dirty words to early infancy and childhood and their place and value in life and analytic therapy. He also provides a journey through universal literature - the rich variety of dirty words used by Rabelais, Quevado, Mozart, Voltaire, the Marquis de Sade, Joyce, and Lawrence.
