Description of Artwork: Hasdeu's Duduca Mamuca is a novel about the erotic adventures of an undergraduate at a German University. He and an older friend seduce a mother and daughter, who are both actresses and the women give lessons in love making to the two men.
He released a version of the novel with deleted segments in 1864, although he had defended his writing through comparing it to equally "indecent" passages from the works of classic Romanian writers.
