The homoerotic novel Teleny is a vital antithesis to the prudish idealism of the neo-classic and neo-romantic lyric love poetry of the fin du siecle. it's a paintings of unmasking the cynical double ethical criteria of the Victorian period: the affection of Camille and Teleny is shattered via social reprisals. The e-book was once released in 1893 in 2 hundred copies by way of Leonard Smithers who praised it as being "the strongest and cleverly written erotic romance which has seemed within the English language" in the course of that period, "a e-book that would definitely rank because the leader of its class."
