The Seduction of the Mediterranean: Writing, Art, and Homosexual Fantasy

By Robert Aldrich | Go to book overview

NOTES

PREFACE
1
Kenneth Dover, Greek Homosexuality (New York, 1970), and Timothy d’Arch Smith, Love in Earnest: Some Notes on the Lives and Writings of English ‘Uranian’ Poets from 1889 to 1930 (London, 1970).
2
For instance, David Scott Fox, Mediterranean Heritage (London, 1978), Richard Jenkyns, The Victorians and Ancient Greece (Cambridge, Mass., 1980), and John Pemble, The Mediterranean Passion: Victorians and Edwardians in the South (Oxford, 1988). These books give some attention to homosexuals in the South; but none treats the subject as a separate topic, and all three authors seem rather ill at ease with it.
