Classical Culture and Modern Masculinity

Daniel Orrells

Oxford University Press

This book examines how “Greek Love” for several intellectuals and writers was never simply a straightforward euphemism for modern homosexuality. Instead ancient Greek pederasty provoked German, English and Irish writers to examine the historical differences between ancient and modern. The conclusion turns, finally, to consider briefly two more recent efforts to historicize Greek pederasty and evaluate its meaning for the present: Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality (1979‐1984) and James Davidson's The Greeks and Greek Love (2007).

Keywords:   truth, eros, Foucault, askesis, Davidson
