Homosexuality and Literature: 1890-1930 Hardback
Part of the Gender Studies: Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
Although artists are nowadays able to be openly gay and to address homosexuality explicitly in their work, this book argues that it was the harsh climate of 1890-1930 that produced the most outstanding explorations of homosexuality.
To support his argument, Meyers illuminates the character and creative process of a range of authors of the period, including Wilde, Gide, Proust, E.M.
Forster and T.E. Lawrence, and analyses the sexual problems that were sublimated and transcended in their art.
