Product description

Review

"In this brief and provocative study, Haggerty moves from Restoration texts such as Rochester's 'The Imperfect Enjoyment, ' Dryden's "All for Love," and Lee's "The Rival Queens" to the later eighteenth-century writings by and about Gray, Beckford, and Walpole....This book's greatest contribution to the study of the history of gender/sexuality is the author's provocative claims about the fundamentals of heroic friendship, modern bourgeois subjectivity, and sensibility....Haggerty's arguments are convincing and compelling. His style is one which makes the often new and provocative ideas he presents seem self-evident....Haggerty's book makes a rich and unique contribution to the study of the history of gender and sexuality. Students and scholars in the field will surely benefit from his critical insights." -- Laura L. Mendelson, Department of History, State University of New York, Stony Brook, "Journal of the History of Sexuality"

"George Haggerty's book Men in Love is a complex and persuasive discussion of the phenomenon of public expression of male-male love." -- Kathleen Kincade, "The Eighteenth Century: A Current Biblography"

" "Men in Love" makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the period. This is a fine example of gay studies casting light on a whole culture." -- Gregory Woods, "Times Literary Supplement (London)"

"Like Rowland's, the book should be seen as one vista on the trek to recover how modern Western sexuality evolved its particular taxonomy. Highly recommended, particularly for graduate students through faculty." -- "Choice"
