This important book is the first full-scale account of male gay literature across cultures, languages, and centuries. A work of reference as well as the definitive history of a tradition, it traces writing by and about homosexual men from ancient Greece and Rome to the twentieth-century gay literary explosion. "Woods' own artistry is evident throughout this elegant and startling book. . . . These finely honed gay readings of selected Western (and some Eastern) literary texts richly reward the careful attention they demand. . . . Though grounded in the particulars of gay male identity, this masterpiece of literary (and social) criticism calls across the divides of sex and sexual orientation."--Kirkus Reviews (a starred review) "An encyclopedic mapping of the intersection between male homosexuality and belles lettres . . . [that is] good reading, in part because Woods has foregone strict chronology to link writers across eras and cultures."--Louis Bayard, Washington Post Book World "Encyclopedic and critical, evenhanded and interpretive, Woods has produced a study that stands as a monument to the progress of gay literary criticism. No one to date has attempted such a grand world-wide history. . . . It cannot be recommended highly enough."--Library Journal (a starred review) "A bold, intelligent and gorgeously encyclopedic study."--Philip Gambone, Lambda Book Report "An exemplary piece of work."--Jonathan Bate, The Sunday Telegraph… (mais)

The first full-scale account of gay male literature. Impressive in that it covers everything from the end of the twentieth century to the classics of ancient Greece. Since modernism and post-modernism have emerged, it is helpful to take a retrospective look at the body of work written by and about gay men. ( )

Comprehensive but muddled and his sweep too wide in some places. Good for peering into some abandoned closets in the male homosexual past, but surprisingly weak in its presentation and arguments. ( )

In 1951 the Fleet Street editor Leonard Crocombe dedicated his book Slow Ship to Hong Kong to his elder daughter. A History of Gay Literature is dedicated to the same unique individual: my mother, Charmion Woods.
