NewgonWiki is moving to a new domain (yet to be decided, but very soon). We will then create a public forum within 10-12 weeks. There is a slight possibility that Newgon.net will expire in early December and therefore not redirect to the new NewgonWiki domain. In that case, JohnHolt will post a notice on BoyChat and BoyLinks will carry the new URL.

Uranian Poetry

From NewgonWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Uranian Poetry was a type of sentimentally stylized pederastic (boy) poetry that formed a tabooed subculture among certain upper class men from the 1880s to 1930s.

The group's name derives, in part, from the Platonic theory of "heavenly" or "Uranian" pederasty. Some of these Uranians were William Johnson, Lord Alfred Douglas (1870-1945), John Gambril Nicholson (1886-1931), Edwin Emmanuel Bradford (1860-1944), John Addington Symonds (1840-1892). Marginally associated with their world were more famous writers such as Oscar Wilde and others.
