Short excerpt: It is worse than useless to deplore the irremediable; yet no man probably has failed to mourn the fate of mighty poets whose dawning gave the promise of a glorious day but who passed from earth while yet the light that shone in them was crescent.

John Addington Symonds (5 October 1840 – 19 April 1893) was an English poet and literary critic. Although he married and had a family, he was an early advocate of male love (homosexuality), which he believed could include pederastic as well as egalitarian relationships. He referred to it as l'amour de l'impossible (love of the impossible). A cultural historian, he was known for his work on the Renaissance, as well as numerous biographies about writers and artists. He also wrote much poetry inspired by his homosexual affairs.
