Edward Carpenter Zusammenfassung

Edward Carpenter: A Life of Liberty and Love Sheila Rowbotham

'Challenging many of the values and conceits of Western civilization, the gay socialist writer Edward Carpenter had an extraordinary impact on the cultural and political landscape of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. An advocate of, among other causes, free love, recycling, nudism, women's suffrage and prison reform, Carpenter's work anticipated the sexual revolution of the 1960s and placed him at the epicenter of the literary culture of his day. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this major new biography situates Carpenter's life and thought in relation to the contemporary social, aesthetic and intellectual movements, and explores his friendships with figures such as Walt Whitman, Robert Graves, Oscar Wilde, E.M. Forster, Isadora Duncan and Emma Goldman. Edward Carpenter paints a compelling portrait of a man who has been described as a 'weather-vane' for his times.'

Edward Carpenter Bewertungen

"Exhaustively researched and resonant in detail. It is a splendid reassessment of a man who was both typical of his own time and light years ahead of it." Fiona MacCarthy, Guardian "Indispensable... A lively, readable, and balanced account of the gender wars of one messy century." The Times "One of the best political biographies for many years. It is not just a book about the past; it's bursting with ideas that remain relevant to the future of humanity." Peter Tatchell, Observer Books of the Year "Sheila Rowbotham has given us not just an account of one remarkable individual's life, but has helped to explain how we evolved into the society we are today." Martin Pugh, Times Literary Supplement
