"Heterosexuality, this novel forthrightly claims, is a bad alternative for passionate love among men—and heterosexuality's old emergence within the 19th century is therefore, Cecil Dreeme laments, a grave misfortune."—Christopher Looby, from the Introduction
Freshly back to manhattan urban from his reports in another country, unmoored by means of information of the plain suicide of his finished youth pal Clara Denman, and drawn despite himself towards the sinister man-about-town Densdeth, Robert Byng is unsettlingly adrift within the urban of his start. issues take a fair stranger flip as soon as he unearths accommodations within the Gothic halls of Chrysalis university in decrease new york. There he meets the mysteriously reclusive Cecil Dreeme, remarkable artist and creature of the evening. In Dreeme, Byng unearths a pal in contrast to any he has identified earlier than. yet is Cecil the fellow he claims to be, and will their friendship continue to exist the risks they are going to quickly face together?
Issued posthumously in 1861, Cecil Dreeme was once the 1st released novel of Theodore Winthrop, who has the unlucky contrast of being one of many first Union officials killed within the line of responsibility throughout the Civil battle. Newly edited by way of Christopher Looby, it's a very queer publication indeed.
