This antiquarian book contains a collection of autobiographical notes written by Edward Carpenter. Started in a garden in London in 1890, this fascinating autobiography is comprised of material written casually and sporadically, culminating in a slightly disjointed but thoroughly insightful look into the life of this accomplished poet and philosopher. An interesting and entertaining text, this autobiography is a must-read for fans of Carpenter’s work, and is highly recommended for those with an interest in his personal life. Edward Carpenter was an English poet, anthologist, philosopher, and pioneer of LGBT rights. This book was originally published in 1916. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
