It may be said that the special attractiveness which the 

nakedness of great literature sometimes possesses for young minds 

is unwholesome. But it must be remembered that the peculiar 

interest of this element is merely due to the fact that elsewhere 

there is an inveterate and abnormal concealment. It must also be 

said that the statements of the great writers about natural 

things are never degrading, nor even erotically exciting to the 

young, and what Emilia Pardo Bazan tells of herself and her 

delight when a child in the historical books of the Old 

Testament, that the crude passages in them failed to send the 

faintest cloud of trouble across her young imagination, is 

equally true of most children. It is necessary, indeed, that 

these naked and serious things should be left standing, even if 

only to counterbalance the lewdly comic efforts to besmirch love 

and sex, which are visible to all in every low-class bookseller's 

shop window.
