The Blue Lagoon

Reading experience

Evidence

When we were at the Grammar School, the English master"s daughter, who was in the same class as Sheila, told us that her father had read "The Blue Lagoon" and thought it very beautiful. We were greatly impressed. It seemed the height of sophistication to get beyond the excitement of reading a description of sexual intercourse -this we knew was the point of the ban, though Betty Martin informed us that it only said "locked in each other"s arms" -and to be able to use the calm Olympian word "beautiful".
