Abstract


The union of the two French symbolist poets Arthur
Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine revolutionizes the nineteenth
and the twentieth centuries with its homoerotic poems.
But only now they are having their works printed by Gay
Sunshine Press. The collection of erotic poems - A
Lover's Cock - reveals to the reader the sexual
liberation which happened a century ahead of its time.
Rimbaud and Verlaine's is a bold, strong and direct style
for a period when to be gay was infamous and unacceptable.
In fact, they were ostracized by the Parisian society
because of their rude behaviour.
