    PDF/EPUB Leigh Eric Schmidt ¸ Heavens Bride ePUB ☆ ¸ heavens pdf, bride download, Heavens Bride EpubIda Craddock was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison 110 years ago in 1902 for violation of the Comstock Act of 1873 that made it illegal to send any obscene lewd andor lascivious materials through the mail Craddock was a sexologist who wrote and distributed through the mails several pamphlets on how married couples could achieve mutual satisfaction in their sexual relations Rather than serve her prison sentence she committed suicide Outrage over her death marked the beginning of a Free Speech Movement that eventually overturned the Comstock ActBut Ida Craddock was so much and Leigh Schmidt does an admirable job of writing a biography from the supressed documents by and about her She was a brilliant woman who passed the entrance exams for the University of Pennsylvaniavery satisfactorily but was denied admission by the board of trustees because of her sex She then became the secretary of the American Secular Un

    PDF/EPUB Leigh Eric Schmidt ¸ Heavens Bride ePUB ☆ ¸ heavens pdf, bride download, Heavens Bride EpubA fascinating look at an early marriage reformerwomen's rights activist Ida C Craddock It looks at her work as a sexologist and how she was hounded and persecuted under obscenity laws It also looks at her mysticism an adept who was considered a brilliant mind by Crowley And it tries to untangle the argument that she was insane while looking at how women were committed to lunatic asylums at the time if they were an embarrassment to the family Ida C Craddock was deeply flawed as an activist While she campaigned for women she looked with scorn and disgust at the plights of the working class and ethnic minorities What I appreciated about this biography is that there wasn't an embarrassed attempt to justify her prejudices

    PDF/EPUB Leigh Eric Schmidt ¸ Heavens Bride ePUB ☆ ¸ heavens pdf, bride download, Heavens Bride EpubNot a review but a note to myself of a tiny detail I liked Craddock proposed the pansy as symbol for American freethinkers as a pun on the French 'pensee' meaning 'thought' Was overruled by a fellow named Otto Wettstein Otto WetBlanket like who felt this was too feminine and had already made up pins using the phallic and banal symbol of a blazing torch Noted both because I like the somewhat subversive use of the inoffensive pansy and because I like the irony of self proclaimed phallic cult researcher Craddock going up against this modern but boring phallic imagery

    PDF/EPUB Leigh Eric Schmidt ¸ Heavens Bride ePUB ☆ ¸ heavens pdf, bride download, Heavens Bride EpubHeaven's Bride was a bit irregular a little slow to start and dragging in the middle but the final chapters detailing her legal battle with Anthony Comstock were tense and vivid If you're picking this up you should be at least marginally interested in the subject matter Victorian life the marriage reformers early spiritualism andor Ida Craddock and Anthony Comstock because unlike some non fiction like Devil and the White City the book itself probably won't pick you up and carry you away out of sheer brilliance Nonetheless it's a comprehensive detailed vibrant account of a fascinating personality at a complicated time in history and with a little help from an attentive reader it moves along admirably
