An excellent resource for understanding male homosexuality, this also is full of vivid revelations of Victorian life in general and in particular among the middle and upper classes. Symonds (1840-93) was a prominent man of letters in 19th century England. His memoirs are intimate, but not erotic or titillating, and he is an earnest ethicist.
