The homoerotic novel Teleny is an important antithesis to the prudish idealism of the neo-classic and neo-romantic lyric love poetry of the fin du siecle. It is a work of unmasking the cynical double moral standards of the Victorian era: The love of Camille and Teleny is shattered by social reprisals. The book was published in 1893 in 200 copies by Leonard Smithers who praised it as being "the most powerful and cleverly written erotic romance which has appeared in the English language" during that era, "a book that will certainly rank as the chief of its class."

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Oscar Wilde was born on October 16, 1854, to the Irish nationalist and writer Speranza Wilde and the doctor William Wilde. After graduating from Oxford in 1878, Wilde moved to London, where he became notorious for his sharp wit and flamboyant style of dress.

Though he was publishing plays and poems throughout the 1880s, it wasn t until the late 1880s and early 1890s that his work started to be received positively. In 1895, Oscar Wilde was tried for homosexuality and was convicted and sentenced to two years in prison. Tragically, this downfall came at the height of his career, as his plays, An Ideal Husband "and The Importance of Being Earnest, "were playing to full houses in London. He was greatly weakened by the privations of prison life, and moved to Paris after his sentence. Wilde died in a hotel room, either of syphilis or complications from ear surgery, in Paris, on November 30, 1900.

HASH(0x90dc50b4) von 5 Sternen an almost unreadable version 24. August 2009
Von adorian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I took a Yellow Nineties literature course in college, and the professor told us to stay away from "Teleny," that Oscar Wilde had nothing to do with it. With my interest piqued, I went to the university library and discovered there was a copy of "Teleny" in the rare book room. I read it in one sitting. I agreed that Oscar Wilde probably had nothing to do with it.

But now, many years later, I've read it again, and this doesn't even seem like the same text I read before. I will give Oscar Wilde chapter 7 and a long passage of chapter 8. Beyond that, I'm sure many other writers contributed most of it. I just wish an editor had been involved. While reading this version, I concluded that some kind of optical scanner had been used to transfer the text from one source to another. In the process, very strange things happened. The letter "m" often gets subsituted for "th," so that the word "that" appears as "mat." "Mink" is really "think." But it doesn't stop there. "Concerts" becomes "conceits." "Kiss" becomes "lass." The best one is "mush-scented courtesans," which I hope is supposed to be "musk-scented." Add to that the fact that some French words were just guessed at, so we end up with "mignans," "matrons" for "marrons," and "Angut" for "Angot." Anyway, the text is so corrupted that you practically have to be a cryptographer to decipher it some of it.

The early chapters have lots of typical Victorian hetero scenes, but once the homosexual ones start, one must agree that this is a different kind of prose. The literary and classical allusions abound. (Some of them are so obscure that I couldn't find out about them using google search.) There is an attempt at a Poe atmosphere near the end, which is telegraphed from a mile away. The end is "open," with a hint that there might be a sequel, but apparently there never was one.

In all honesty, I cannot recomment this New Traveller's Companion Series version (no pictures) because of the constant typos and bizarre punctuation that render the prose almost unreadable.

HASH(0x90dc5300) von 5 Sternen Accurate and up to date 25. April 2013
Von Robert Reising - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Truly a classic of homosexual literature. I first read the Teleny almost 50 years ago when I was in my 20's. Now, after a life-time of experiences, spanning from the 1950's up to today (2013), I am flabbergasted at how accurately and completely the text, which was written over 100 years ago, describes male homosexual love: emotions and sex acts. Although the story's setting is apparently France at the end of the nineteenth century, the feelings and actions of the characters are as up-to-date as if they were taking place today. I recommend this book to anyone interested in male homosexuality.

HASH(0x90dc52c4) von 5 Sternen Homoerotic novel, erotically illustrated 26. März 2006
Von Peter Dale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Teleny is a homoerotic novel and important antithesis to the prudish idealism of the neo-classic and neo-romantic lyric love poetry of the "fin de siècle". The book about the gay love between the rich Camille and the struggling, but sexy pianist Teleny was published in 1893 in 200 copies. The partially very graphic text is accompanied by tasteful erotic linocuts by Uday K. Dhar (New York).

HASH(0x90dc5654) von 5 Sternen Weird, gross, and wonderful. 30. Juli 2014
Von VioletH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Obsessive love, bizarre and disturbing sexual anecdotes, some genuinely sex bits, and loads of heartache and angst. It took me forever to get through 'cos I kept having to put it down and shake off the disgusting parts, but I'm very glad I kept at it. (And you do get some mostly nice sex near the end...) It's really a fascinating read, particularly because it offers insight into fringe Victorian attitudes.

Btw, my understanding is that Oscar Wilde didn't actually write this; it was a joint effort between some of his students.

HASH(0x90dc5978) von 5 Sternen I read it in high school 7. September 2013
Von Joseph D Brassfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Just refreshing my memory of something I thought I cherished. It's sloppily written, obviously not by Oscar Wilde, and is sophomoric at best. Just like high school. But it did bring back some fond memories.
