Challenging the values of Western civilisation, the gay socialist writer Edward Carpenter had an extraordinary impact on the cultural and political landscape of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.


Challenging the values of Western civilisation, the gay socialist writer Edward Carpenter had an extraordinary impact on the cultural and political landscape of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Sheila Rowbotham’s major new biography situates Edward Carpenter’s life in relation to the social, aesthetic and intellectual movements of the day, particularly his support for women’s suffrage, exploring some of his friendships with many prominent female figures of the time including Annie Besant, Isadora Duncan and Emma Goldman.
