Editorial Reviews


Men in Love makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the period. This is a fine example of gay studies casting light on a whole culture.

(Gregory Woods Times Literary Supplement (London))

Like Rowland's, the book should be seen as one vista on the trek to recover how modern Western sexuality evolved its particular taxonomy. Highly recommended, particularly for graduate students through faculty.

(D. N. Mager Choice)

George Haggerty's book Men in Love is a complex and persuasive discussion of the phenomenon of public expression of male-male love.

(Kathleen Kincade The Eighteenth Century : A Current Biblography)


Shifting the focus of inquiry from acts of sex to words of love, George Haggerty expands the borders of gay scholarship to explore the verbal textures of men's intimacies and desires. In the process, he reveals the ways in which eighteenth-century ideologies of sensibility, friendship, and masculinity enabled startlingly public yet potentially subversive avowals of same-sex love and persuasively demonstrates the power of affection, independent of erotic acts, to challenge social norms. Deeply learned, theoretically sophisticated, and eminently readable, Men in Love opens fresh new directions for the study of both gender and sexuality.

(Susan S. Lanser, author of Fictions of Authority: Women Writers and Narrative Voice)
