Ten of the best erotic dreams in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best erotic dreams in literature.

One novel on the list:
V. by Thomas Pynchon

V. has an affair with Mélanie l'Heuremaudit, whose father owns a large estate in Normandy. Among Mélanie's dreams, which Pynchon details, is one in which she slides down the great mansard roof of the family house. "Her skirt would fly above her hips, her black-stockinged legs would writhe" and the sensation of "roof-tiles sliding beneath the hard curve of her rump" would arouse her to ecstasy.
Read about the other erotic dreams on the list.
