Honest Robin: “Out” in 1911

Honest Robin: “Out” in 1911

Ratings: (0)|Views: 12|Likes:
In 1911, English Quaker Henry Bryan Binns, one of the earliest Whitman biographers, and a friend to Edward Carpenter, published The Great Companions, a book clearly inspired by Whitman and Carpenter.

The book’s title is taken from Whitman’s prophesy of the emergence of great companions, and the chapter’s title is taken from Whitman’s reminder that they would be the spiritual equivalents of those pioneers who tamed the American west.

In this characteristic vignette, Binns seems to be alluding to period practices of a touch of makeup (lipstick?) and the wearing of notorious colors such as Wildean green, sure to trigger homophobic reactions on the street.
