Strangers : Homosexual Love in the Nineteenth Century, Paperback / softback Book

Strangers : Homosexual Love in the Nineteenth Century Paperback / softback

Description

In Strangers: Homosexual Love in the Nineteenth Century, award-winning author Graham Robb explores the story - and history - of male and female homosexuality in the UK and US, uncovering elements from legislature, literature, medicine and day-to-day life that point to a particularly self-aware and sophisticated culture of Victorian homosexuality.

Drawing on famous cases such as the Wilde trials, as well as a wide variety of previously neglected sources, Robb recreates this era with great insight, humour and aplomb, exploding modern myths and restoring the real and vibrant truth of homosexual love to today's readers: Strangers tells a tale that is in part familiar, and in part extremely surprising - a story of oppression and secrecy, but also of unexpected tolerance and familiarity.
