Description

Nineteenth-Century Writings on Homosexuality is a comprehensive collection which provides, for the first time in one volume, many texts unavailable outside specialised academic libraries. Chris White has brought together a wide range of primary source material, including prose, poetry, fiction, history and polemic from 1810 to 1914. Nineteenth-Century Writings on Homosexuality includes writing on: * trials and scandals * censorship and homophobia * cultural and personal history * love and friendship * lesbianism * aestheticism and decadence * sexual tourism and colonialism * cross-class desire * sodomy and sadomasochism. Containing a general introduction, section headnotes, a bibliography of primary and secondary source material, this book is extraordinarily well researched.show more
