RARA-AVIS: Heavy cursing included

Am just reading Pelecanos's "The Sweet Forever" and liking it very much. But alongside with Ellroy, it made me think when the words
"fuck" and "fucking" got accepted into literature, i.e. what was the first book where those words were mentioned. And what was the first film? I keep thinking about "Dirty Harry", but I'm not sure about it.

Hope this isn't too off-topic. But maybe it will cheer us up!
