The Rev. E. E. Bradford was part of a movement of gay poets — the Uranians — who flourished from the 1890s to the 1930s. His poems were immensely popular, and not just among a gay coterie. His admirers included John Betjeman and W. H. Auden.
In this collection we experience Bradford’s love of nature, the ambience of plein air, and his homoerotic delight and appreciation of youth and boyhood.
