To what extent and in what ways was homosexuality approved by the ancient Greeks? An eminent classicist examines the evidence--vase paintings, archaic and classical poetry, the dialogues of Plato, speeches in the law courts, the comedies of Aristophanes--and reaches provocative conclusions. A discussion of female homosexuality is included.

Fairly detailed methodical description and analysis of homosexuality in Ancient Greece. Scholarly, detailed and academic but not beyond a lay person to read. Looks at the law, manifestatio of eros and nature and society. Good, if somewhay dry, read. Read full review
