Gertrude Atherton

The Crystal Cup

Inhibitions and a neurosis against sex fight a losing battle with endocrines and glands In a romance of atavism, which Gertrude Atherton calls «The Crystal Cup.” Taking her title from George Sterling's «Into a crystal cup the dusky wine I pour, and, musing at so rich a shrine, I watch the star that haunts its ruddy glow,” Miss Atherton uses her conception of Freudian theories to clear up the duskiness.
As a result the book Is more or less a study of sex Inhibitions. Melodrama has Its place in the pages of “The Crystal Cup” as the wine of life pours Into the veins of the heroine, Gita Carteret.
