Abstract:While the life and works of the South African novelist and feminist Olive Schreiner (1855-1920) are well researched and studied with respect to the British sexologist, her coeval Havelock Ellis, who plays an important role as her correspondent and documentalist, an equally influential friendship with Edward Carpenter, the founder Socialist and gay rights activist, remains hardly explored. Source-work on the Schreiner-Carpenter link needs to proceed so that the interplay of radical concepts and of literary practice shared between the authors may be better understood and appraised. This article both considers their respective creative work and notable pamphleteering in favour of radical causes. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
