Overview

Recent writings about homosexuality have tended toward either dry science or trendy self-help. But the mystery of human sexuality cannot be summed up using only psychoanalitic or biological models. In Men in Love, Jungian psychoanalist Vittorio Lingiardi traces the poetic roots of eros from ancient Greek times to modern times through myths, art, poetry, and symbols. From the rape of Ganymede to Michelangelo’s loves, from the relationship of Batman and Robin to the letters between Freud and Jung, this voyage speaks eloquently about the complex relationships between men. “A substantial and imaginative study ... pleasurable and edifying.” — David Leavitt, author of The Lost Language of Cranes
