By Theodore Winthrop,Christopher Looby

"Heterosexuality, this novel forthrightly claims, is a negative replacement for passionate love among men—and heterosexuality's old emergence within the 19th century is hence, Cecil Dreeme laments, a grave misfortune."—Christopher Looby, from the Introduction

Freshly back to long island urban from his stories in a foreign country, unmoored via information of the plain suicide of his entire early life good friend Clara Denman, and drawn despite himself towards the sinister man-about-town Densdeth, Robert Byng is unsettlingly adrift within the urban of his delivery. 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, terrific artist and creature of the evening. In Dreeme, Byng unearths a pal not like any he has identified prior to. yet is Cecil the guy he claims to be, and will their friendship continue to exist the risks they'll 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 struggle. Newly edited by way of Christopher Looby, it's a very queer e-book indeed.
