About the Author:

Edward Carpenter, born August 29, 1844 in Hove and died June 28, 1929 in Guildford, is an English poet and philosopher, libertarian socialist militant and for the rights of homosexuals. From a rich family in Brighton, he made brilliant studies at Cambridge. Ordained Anglican pastor in 1870, he left the order in 1874. After reading and meeting Walt Whitman, Edward Carpenter settled in the countryside to lead a simpler life. Having grown vegetarian and abstract, he lived with his first companion, Albert Fearnehoug, in the neighborhood of Sheffield where he became market gardener and sandal maker. He took part in the birth of British Socialism alongside Henry Hyndman, then in the founding of the Fabian Society and then of the Labor Party. He went to Ceylon and India in pursuit of his spiritual researches. He committed himself to the rights of homosexuals and those of women from the years 1890-1900. At the end of his life, he moved with his companion George Merrill to Guildford. He died of an attack one year after Merrill. They are buried together at Guilford Cemetery.
