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)
