Routledge, 12 oct. 2012 - 302 pages
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
* 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.
