Love's Coming-of-Age: A Series of Papers on the Relations of the Sexes

by Edward Carpenter

The book is a series of essays that discuss the social, psychological, and sexual aspects of love and relationships. "Love's Coming-of-Age" is a book written by Edward Carpenter, published in 1896, which explores the relationships between men and women. Carpenter, a British socialist and feminist, examines the roles of men and women in society and critiques traditional gender norms and expectations. He also touches on the topics such as homosexuality, same-sex relationships and the nature of love in general. He puts forward the idea that love should be based on mutual respect, equality, and freedom. The book was considered quite progressive for its time and has since been considered as a classic in the field of gender studies, and continues to be read and studied by those interested in the history of feminist thought.
