Summary First published nearly one hundred years ago, Andre; Gides masterpiece, translated from the original French by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Howard, draws from the disciplines of biology, philosophy, and history to support the authors assertion that homosexuality is a natural human trait At the time of his death in 1951, having won the Nobel Prize in Literature only four years prior, Andre; Gide was considered one of the most important literary minds of the twentieth century. In Corydon , initially released anonymously in installments between 1911 and 1920, Gide speaks his most subversive and provocative truth. Citing myriad examples that span thousands of years, Gides Socratic dialogues argue that homosexuality is natural ; in fact, far more so than the social construct of exclusive heterosexuality, the act of systematically banning or ostracizing same-sex relationships. Corydon , named for the pederast character in Virgils Eclogues , caused its author “all kinds of trouble,; according to his friends, but he regarded it as his most important work. The courage, intelligence, and prescience of Gide’s argument make it all the more impressive today.
