This Anthology restores the missing record that was nearly erased by censorship and neglect... what a thrilling story it tells' EDMUND WHITE
This fascinating anthology is the first to explore the world of hidden writing about homosexuality that appeared before works such as E.M. Forster's Maurice introduced a new openness about the subject. A numberof 18th- and 19th-century novels and stories carried coded portraits of homosexuals or or references to homosexuality. Several of these could only be circulated privately; others were written in a way that meant the homosexual element would be recognisable only to a select few.
Hugely entertaining, Pages Passed from Hand to Hand includes extracts from writers such as Herman Melville, Walter Pater, Henry James, E.F. Benson, Saki and D.H. Lawrence.
'A valuable work of social history in that it reveals many aspects of the harassed lives of Victorian and Edwardian homosexuals' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
