Rupert Brooke of Rugby: Biography, Commentary, Poetry, Prose, and Photographs

This volume details the bowdlerization of Brooke by his early biographers, discusses Brooke's sexuality, and ties Brooke's early poems to the romantic friendships he developed at Rugby School. Brooke's poetry is then presented, followed by his travel writing, complete with the stunning tribute by Henry James. Photographs of Brooke appear throughout the book and tell a story of their own.

About Keith Hale

Keith Hale is author of the novels Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada and Letters to a Shooting Star. He has edited an anthology of gay literature from antiquity through the First World War (Ode to Boy), a collection of Lord Byron's love poetry for boys (Edleston), a collection of Rupert Brooke's letters that had been sealed for eighty years due to their homosexual themes (Friends and Apostles), and editions of poetry by Shakespeare, Housman, and Brooke. Hale wrote the first and perhaps only account of gay life in the Balkans before the walls of Communism crumbled in his travelogue In the Land of Alexander, and he explored how the military's ban on gays affected the life of one ROTC cadet in his book Torn Allegiances. Hale is a native of Arkansas and also has made his home in Austin, Amsterdam, and Guam.
