Details

Against the background of the 1885 Act that criminalized male homosexuality and led to the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde, two young scholars, Edward Carpenter and John Addington Symonds, began writing and campaigning for the rights of gay men. Drawing on primary sources, this book explores their pioneering ideas, the personal cost to themselves, and their connection with Havelock Ellis, whose Sexual Inversion (1897) became the first English study of homosexuality.
