Corydon by André Gide

DOWNLOAD Corydon by André Gide 107 Oet Richard Howard In spirited dialogue with his bigoted boorish interviewer Corydon marshals evidence from naturalists historians poets and philosophers to support his contention that homosexuality pervaded the most culturally and artistically advanced civilizations from Greece in the age of Pericles to Renaissance Italy and England in the age of Shakespeare Although obscured by later critics literature and art from Homer to Titian proclaim the true nature. Some of the dialogues are interesting and effective than others the first is the best and I can see why his friends encouraged him to stop while he was ahead and the overall piece is certainly outdated still and unfortunately much of the argument made here remains relevant This is also an excellent example of the political social legal and philosophical arguments surrounding homosexuality in the early 1900s Gide makes a truly troubling slip at the very end of the final dialogue but perhaps that was unavoidable given the time The Socratic dialogues aren t necessarily very sophisticated but they re not without value

DOWNLOAD Corydon by André Gide 107 Of relationships between such lovers as Achilles and Patrocles not to mention Virgil's mythical Corydon and his shepherd Alexis constructed union while the fundamental natural relation is the homosexual one My friends insist that this little book is of the kind which will do me the greatest harm Gide wrote of his Corydon In these pages contemporary readers will find a prescient and courageous treatment of a topic that has scarcely become less controversial. This is a 1905 set of conversations and maybe a novel fiction with a philosopher who goes by the name of Corydon The narrator and Corydon have a series of dialogues about homosexuality In each while trying to explore the topic thoroughly Corydon takes on a different academic lens They begin by discussing the topic within a moral and philosophical framework and begin off by using Walt Whitman s poetry as a start They offer the generally held belief that homosexuality is a perversion So they try to consider Walt Whitman in terms of a syllogism to the degree of if Homosexuality is a perversion then Walt Whitman is sick so what if Walt Whitman is not sick soWhat they find is that while they might reach various conclusions about the topic they don t actually reach any satisfying understanding of a human problemSo the next dialog they use biology to discuss the topic and realize that what we would call homosexuality occurs in species around the planet and thereforeAnd soThis is a very early book discussing the topic in these 20th century terms and in using Ancient Greek tools and methods they don t reach anything satisfying than Greek likely did I am not sure they really truly work through any of these issues without any real satisfying conclusion but it s an early example of trying to understand the humanity of the situation in human terms and not working solely on the premise that homosexuality is unnatural and we all agree
