Mine-Haha: Or, on the Bodily Education of Young Girls

Artist/Author: Frank Wedekind | Reference: P3095 | ISBN: 978-1843914556 | Type: Publication

At once a dystopian fantasy and a critique of sexual norms, this novella describes a unique boarding  institution for girls – part idyllic refuge, part prison – where pupils are trained only in the physical arts of movement, dance and music, before issuing into an adult world for which they have (unwittingly) been prepared. Presented alongside two rare, complementary short fictional pieces: The Burning of Egliswyl and The Sacrificial Lamb.

Browning used a collection of handicapped actors and performers for the circus community, which initially welcomes the beautiful trapeze artist Cleopatra into their group when she marries midget circus owner, Hans.
