These two volumes constitute the first substantial anthology of paederastic poetry and prose compiled since Men and Boys: An Anthology in 1924. It is a representative sampling of the diverse paederastic texts written by the English Uranians, ranging from William Johnson's Ionica (1858) to Samuel Elsworth Cottam's Cameos of Boyhood (1930). Forty-seven writers of Uranian poetry and prose have been included in the two volumes of this anthology, including, in this first volume:
Stanley Addleshaw, James Leslie Barford, John Francis Bloxam, Edwin Emmanuel Bradford, Reginald Baliol Brett, Viscount Esher, Horatio Robert Forbes Brown, Sir Richard Francis Burton, Edward Carpenter, George Douglas Howard Cole, Samuel Elsworth Cottam, Edward Alexander "Aleister" Crowley, Digby Mackworth Dolben, Lord Alfred Douglas, E. M. Forster, Leonard Henry Green, Gerard Manley Hopkins, A. E. Housman, George Cecil Ives, Edmund John, Lionel Pigot Johnson, William Johnson, Edward Cracroft Lefroy, Sydney Frederick McIllree Lomer
Despite a variety of approaches to the theme, the writers anthologized here have one thing in common: Boy-love was, for them, a profound passion.
