Homosexuals in history: a study of ambivalence in society, literature and the arts
Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Tchaikovsky, Oscar Wilde, Ernst Rohm, Noel Coward - these men shared a sexual orientation that ran counter to mainstream society and defied their eras' ideas of biology. This analysis of these influential historical figures explores not only the links between creativity and sexual desire, but also how their awareness of their own sexual mores lent itself to the shaping of their genius.
