John Bristow explores the legacy of effeminacy in homoerotic literature that began with the 1885 Labouchere Amendment criminalizing male homosexual contact and Oscar Wilde's subsequent incarceration. This broad overview of the century that followed reveals how the effeminate behaviour that came to be connected so solidly with male homosexual identity has manifested itself in the literature of gay male writers in England, discussing works from Forster's Howard's End to The Swimming Pool Library by Alan Hollinghurst.
