While many books have been written about gay writing, this is the first full-scale account of male gay literature, across cultures and languages, from ancient times to the present. Working within the widest definitions of what constitutes gay literature, it includes chapters on the significant periods of cultural history, on major writers, and on common themes. A work of reference as well as the definitive history of a tradition, it covers a massive field in terms of time, literary status and location.
