About this book

The essays in this volume explore the content and context of the life and work of John Addington Symonds (1849-93), who ranks with Ruskin and Pater as a leading exponent of the Renaissance and a major arbiter of British and American taste. Symonds was also a pioneer in the field of sexual psychology, and his writings on sexual inversion are cardinal texts in the history of homosexual liberation.
