Men in Love
Male Homosexualities from Ganymede to Batman

Vittorio Lingiardi
Translated by Robert H. Hopke and Paul Schwartz
Foreward by John Beebe

Just as there are many types of heterosexualities (Platonic, erotic, fraternal, repressed, master-slave), there are many types of homosexualities: the "typical" homosexual does not exist. In this beautifully written volume, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Vittorio Lingiardi traces the journey of gay people and the search for spirituality from early Greek times to contemporary culture via the myths, poems and symbols of male homosexualities throughout the centuries. From the Greek myth of the rape of Ganymede to Roman and Nazi eagles, Michelangelo's loves to the voice of Maria Callas, the relationship of Batman and Robin to the letters between Freud and Jung, this voyage into our collective unconscious reveals much about the way we all-gay or straight-feel about the range of relationships between men.
