I just skimmed through looking for the dirty parts, and I was disappointed," as a friend once dismissed this novel. Serenissima in fact is a free-wheeling now-becomes-then fantasy involving a Shakespearean actress and Shakespeare himself. Jong is a good writer, a knowledgable writer, a strong writer who tackles this in a very entertaining and enlightening way.

This early work of Erica Jong takes the reader on a kaliedeoscopic journey back to Renaissance Venice to soak in the Serenissima in all its glory and decadence! Her character seeks, and of course receives, a chance encounter with a certain young British Bard, doing "research" for his later romantic comedies! Just let go!! Oh the thrills and the spills!! What a glorious ride down the Grand Canal! What an absolute tragedy (pun intended) that this magical little book has gone out of print!! So part with your ducats and pluck a copy herein, whilst ye can, so you too can frolic, Venetian style, beneath the cherubs and under the stars! (NOT for the young or the squeamish!)

Perfect to read before a trip to Venice. Quite wild though

This kinda-trashy, kinda-intellectual novel is classic Jong. The protagonist, a Shakespearean actress, certainly isn't facing a shortage of [physical] encounters. In fact, she has a romp with the Bard himself. The books is a little bit difficult to follow, as it bounces back & forth between Shakespearan times & modern times. It is spiced up with a word or two of Italian here & there, references to contemporary art, andnd it is rich with Shakespearean history & references to Shakespeare's works. If you like a little Shakespeare in your steamy romance reads, this book is for you.
