Corydon; four Socratic dialogues

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.

  • ""Corydon", réflexion sur la pédérastie et œuvre d'une vie, est un ouvrage singulier dont la nécessité s'est imposée très vite à Gide qui l'a longuement mûri et l'a considéré comme "le plus important de [s]es livres". Cette étude vient compléter sa récente publication dans la Bibliothèque de la Pléiade. On retrace son histoire, en fournissant tout un dossier de documents, pour la plupart inédits ou introuvables. On y trouvera aussi le texte du C.R.D.N. de 1911, anonyme et sans mention d'éditeur."
  • "Considered by Gide to be the most important of his books, this slim, exquisitely crafted volume consists of four dialogues on the subject of homosexuality and its place in society. Published anonymously in bits and pieces between 1911 and 1920, Corydon first appeared in a signed, commercial edition in France in 1924 and in the United States in 1950, the year before Gide's death. In spirited dialogue with his bigoted, boorish interviewer, Corydon marshals an erudite range of evidence from naturalists, historians, poets, and philosophers to support his contention that homosexuality has pervaded the most culturally and artistically advanced civilizations. The evidence, Corydon suggests, points to heterosexuality as a socially constructed union, while the more fundamental, natural relation is the homosexual one."
