Editorial Review

Product Description
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 nineteenth 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 brand 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 a 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. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Account of Pilgrimage, Plus Criticism
The larger part of this book is taken up recounting two trips Edward Carpenter, one of Whitman's British disciples took to visit the aging poet.On this front, it's very useful in filling in some of the details of Whitman's conversations and those of Whitman's friends (Burroughs, Bucke, Anne Gilchrist), who all met the young pilgrim.It's useful for this, but this period of Whitman's life is quite well attested already in the massive Traubel volumes _With Walt Whitman in Camden_. There are jewels here, but only the specialist need dig for them.

The rest of it is Carpenter's opinion of Whitman. (To call it criticism would be inaccurate--it's praise and context.)Carpenter considers Whitman a spiritual figure, and in coming to visit the author of _Leaves of Grass_, Carpenter was engaging in a kind of pilgrimage that is very like his trips later to visit an Indian Gnani or holy man.

Carpenter's a fascinating character in his own right--one of the first 'out' homosexuals in Britain, a socialist with anarchistic leanings, a writer on religion, society, and sex.This book gives a number of valuable insights to his relationship with Whitman's ideas.

4-0 out of 5 stars Insightful and interesting to hear first hand about Whitman
Whitman, Ginsberg and Dylan are three of America's greatest offsprings. And while Ginsberg and Dylan are of our times and can be appreciated in the here and now, and nicely preserved thanks to modern technology, Whitman remains in a time that seems more and more distant as America changes, what seems, hour by hour. Whitman, that great poet (Leaves Of Grass) and humanitarian (his efforts to comfort soldiers injured during the Civil War) was a great inspiration to this kindred and sophisticated spirit from England, Edward Carpenter (also a poet). Carpenter offers some of the most insightful and poetic glimpses into this giant of a man. You can almost see Whitman's reflection in the mirror Carpenter holds before you. This little book is a must for anyone interested in Whitman, and what WW was really about.

4-0 out of 5 stars An interesting study of Whitman from a fascinating man
British author Edward Carpenter was ahead of his time in many ways-- he was a feminist, a socialist reformer, and an outspoken homosexual in a time when none of these things were particularly popular.Unfortunately, hiswork has gradually disappeared from public view since his death in 1929. His friendship with Whitman is an important piece in studying the Americanpoet. ... Read more
