To what extent and in what ways was homosexuality approved by the ancient Greeks? An eminent classicist examines the evidence—vase paintings, archaic and classical poetry, the dialogues of Plato, speeches in the law courts, the comedies of Aristophanes—and reaches provocative conclusions. A discussion of female homosexuality is included.
