Imre

Stevenson, Edward Prime Author

Image Not Available

Imre is one of the first openly gay American novels with a happy ending. Described by the author as "a little psychological romance," the narrative follows two men who meet by chance in a café in Budapest, where they forge a friendship that leads to a series of mutual revelations and gradual disclosures. With its sympathetic characterizations of homosexual men, Imre's 1906 publication marked a turning point in English literature.

This edition includes material relating to the novelís origins, contemporary writings on homosexuality, other writings by Prime-Stevenson, and a contemporary review.

Review:

"An invaluable literary document, Imre is also an unexpectedly absorbing fiction, here accompanied by an excellent scholarly apparatus." -- John W. Crowley, editor of Genteel Pagan: The Double Life of Charles Warren Stoddard

"This edition is a piece of scholarship as exciting as it is rigorous." -- David Leavitt and Mark Mitchell, editors of Pages Passed From Hand to Hand: The Hidden Tradition of Literature in English from 1748 to 1914

About the Author:

James Gifford is a Professor of Humanities at Mohawk Valley Community College, Utica, NY. He is the author of Daynefords Library: American Homosexual Writing 1900-1913 (University of Massachusetts Press, 1995).
