Strangers: Homosexuality in the Nineteenth Century

by Graham Robb
£14.99   paperback  Picador (2004)

Strangers: Homosexuality in the Nineteenth Century by Graham Robb Uncovering the real story of male & female homosexuality in the Victorian era, award-winning author Graham Robb tells a tale that is in part familiar and in part extremely surprising - a story of oppression and secrecy, but also of unexpected tolerance and familiarity. As Robb unearths elements from legislature, literature, medicine and day-to-day life, he begins to discover a culture of Victorian homosexuality that was uniquely well-developed, self-aware and sophisiticated.
Drawing on famous cases such as the Wilde trials, as well as a wide variety of often previously neglected sources, he explores this 'living past' with great insight, humour and assurance, exploding modern assumptions and restoring the real and vibrant history of homosexual love to today's readers.
