    BYRON AND GREEK LOVE

    Louis Crompton

    £14.95

    SKU: 0854492631. Category: .

    Subtitled “Homophobia in 19th-Century England”, Louis Crompton traces Byron’s many homoerotic involvements, from his idealist schoolboy enthusiasms to the unhappy love affair he was embroiled in at the end of his life. Professor Crompton argues that Byron’s homosexuality was an important source for the mood of proud alienation that colours his poetry. “A distinguished specimen of gay history” — New York Review of Books.
