Byron and Greek Love: Homophobia in 19th-century England

Gay Men's Press, 1998 - 419 páginas
A highly praised and very readable exploration of Lord Byron and his time.

"A distinguished specimen of gay history" -- New York Review of Books

Making use of previously unpublished letters from the poet and his circle, Louis Crompton traces Byron's many homoerotic involvements. He argues that Byron's homosexuality was a motive for his first journey to Greece and his later ostracism and exile from England, and an important source for the mood of proud alienation that colors his serious poetry. Byron and Greek Love is at once a fascinating biography and an incisive social commentary; its far-reaching implications for the social and cultural history of early 19th-century England have been widely acclaimed. Original hardback edition was published by University of California Press (1985).
