5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent study of a difficult subject 21 Nov 2002
By "sfoster29" - Published on Amazon.com
This splendid book appeared in 1970, when certain forms of behavior were still legal, and not nearly so much the object of hysteria as they are nowadays. If this book were to appear for the first time today, it would be hooted down and angry letters would be sent to the publisher, demanding that it be withdrawn. The author would receive death threats. Such is the course of social evolution. I would say that Smith's knowledge of the subject is wonderful and his handling of it is perfect. The only fault, a minor one, is that he mistakenly thought that Cuthbert Wright was British and included him; Wright was in fact an American and is out of place here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescued from oblivion 24 Dec 2011
By othoniaboys - Published on Amazon.com
The vast majority of the poets examined here were of no literary interest whatever. This should put to rest the superstition about homosexuals being talented. It is to the student of the literary expression of homosexual feelings, and not to the student of literature per se, that this book will be of interest. The writings examined here are mostly rare, expensive, unobtainable. D'Arch Smith does us an enormous favor by bringing all of these obscure twitterings to our attention. The appendix on Stuart-Young and Chubb brings the book to a fascinating conclusion. Lest you think that I am being unduly negative, d'Arch Smith himself was under no illusions about the literary quality of the poets in question.
