Edited by: John Lauritsen with a Foreword by Robert Peters
CA$10 + S&H
A Problem in Greek Ethics, originally published in 1883, was one of the key texts of the early homosexual rights movement.
This seminal polemic by the noted English poet and scholar John Addington Symonds defends love between males through appeal to the example of ancient Greece. This is the first complete trade edition of this milestone in homophile literature and includes all the essential footnotes and the author's later additions to the text.
Six key chapters are reprinted from Symonds' second major monograph on the subject of male love, A Problem in Modern Ethics, originally published in 1891.
Also included are Symonds' important study "The Genius of Greek Art" and an annotated bibliography.
