Edward Carpenter 1844-1929: Prophet of Human Fellowship

by Chushichi Tsuzuki
£30.99   paperback  Cambridge University Press (2005)

Edward Carpenter 1844-1929: Prophet of Human Fellowship by Chushichi Tsuzuki This is the first full-scale biography of Edward Carpenter, an 'eminent Victorian' who played an intriguing role in the revival of socialism in Britain in the late 19th century.
 
'A worthy heir of Carlyle and Ruskin', as Tolstoy called him, Carpenter tackled boldly the problems of alienation under the pressures of commercial civilisation, and developed a strongly personalised branch of socialism which inspired both the Labour Party and its enemies, syndicalism and anarchism. A homosexual, he grappled with the problems of sexual alienation above all, and emerged as the foremost advocate of the homosexual cause at the time when it was a social taboo.
 
This study, based upon letters and many other personal documents, reveals much of Carpenter's personal life which has hitherto remained obscure, including his 'comradeship' with some of his working-men friends and his influence upon such notable literary figures as Siegfried Sassoon, E.M. Forster and D.H. Lawrence.
