Elinor Glyn: Anon

Mrs_Elinor_Glyn_1915

Would you like to sin
With Elinor Glyn
On a tiger-skin?
Or would you prefer
To err
With her
On some other fur?

Elinor Glyn (1864-1943)

Novelist  and scriptwriter who specialised in risqué romantic fiction which was considered scandalous for its time. She popularized the concept of It. Although her works are relatively tame by modern standards, she had tremendous influence on early 20th century popular culture, and perhaps on the careers of notable Hollywood stars such as Rudolph Valentino, Gloria Swanson, and Clara Bow.
