From Our Editors

 

Amidst myriad collections of contemporary homoerotic poetry on the market today, it is refreshing to come across an anthology that documents from whence this genre came. In Gay and Lesbian Poetry, editor James J. Wilhelm reveals a highly intriguing historical and poetical account that celebrates and sometimes condemns homosexuality and homoeroticism from ancient Greece through to the Renaissance period. This 730-poem collection includes the works of both anonymous and famous scribes such as, Sappho, Vergil, Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer.

Editorial Reviews

"Amid much blather about the alrightnik Western Literary Canon, child porn, and sexopolitical correctness (mostly neoconservative, lesser on the left), here''s an old Clasical tradition long censored and banished from academics, re-emerged into intlligent light: a heroic humorous homoerotic counterculture live from Sappho to Plato & Vergil, thru Medieval Latin, Arabic, Hebrew and provincial languages, up thru Renaissance to Michelangelo. It gives courage to post Whitmanic contemporaries who''ve come out of the Industrial Age closet."
-Allen Ginsberg
