A radical reappraisal of homosexuality in Ancient Greece, by a young historian described as 'the best thing to happen to ancient history for decades' (Andrew Roberts, MAIL ON SUNDAY) Kenneth Dover's 1978 GREEK HOMOSEXUALITY remains the most recent single-volume treatment of the subject as a whole. Drawing on fifteen years of ensuing research, James Davidson rejects Dover's excessively theoretical approach, using a wide variety of sources unknown to him - court cases, romantic novels, satirical plays and poems - to present a view of the subject that, in contrast to Dover and to Foucault, stresses the humanity of the ancient Greeks, and how they lived their loves and pleasures, rather than their moral codes and the theorising of philosophers. Homosexuality in Ancient Greece remains a central area of debate in the classics, in ancient history and lesbian and gay studies. Greek civilisation centrally underpins our own, providing a basis of so much of the west's culture and philosophy, yet the Greeks were more tolerant of homosexuality than virtually any other culture, certainly than the western civilisations that followed. The extent to which Greek attitudes to sexuality and in particular their privileging of 'Greek Love' were comparable and different to our own underlies the continuing debate over the formation of sexuality and the much wider question of the roles of nature and nurture in the formation of human behaviour and personality.… (més)

A weighty tome, in every sense of the words. Arguing against the predominant view of homosexuality in Ancient Greece which tends to focus on whether tab A went into slot B or C and vice versa, the author tries to concentrate on the emotional underpinnings. However he is quite unable to see a rabbit hole without making an immediate rush down it, which makes following the argument rather difficult at times. ( )

This detailed, carefully argued book was fascinating and illuminating and thought-provoking. ( )

Does what it says on the tin: this is a radical reappraisal and Davidson interprets sources and evidence so that, as he says modestly 'they make a little more sense.' Davidson is erudite, witty and funny. His description of the picture on the Sosias cup, where Achilles dresses Patroclus' wound is telling and touching. Like the hare and cocks which Greek lovers presented to their boyfriends, this book is a love-gift - and all the better for that. ( )

Following on from his rapturously received Courtesans and Fishcakes, James Davidson's latest examination of Greek mores is sub-titled "A Radical Reappraisal of Homosexuality in Ancient Greece". As with his account of whores and hors d'oeuvres, this rather narrow-sounding study widens into an examination of an entire culture, far more fascinating and alien than we commonly imagine. As Davidson puts it in customary caustic and witty style, The Greeks & Greek Love excavates terrain that should have been excavated years ago, "had we not been so strangely concerned with sodomitical penetration". There's a lot more to Greek love than the crude enquiry, did they or didn't they? ...
