TomD9938: Well, he was in regular correspondence with other men exchanging views on poetry, etc.  NTTAWWT


Strangely enough, there was a time when an interest in poetry was an indication of an erudite and literate person rather than homosexuality, NTTAWWT

One could also say that striving to be erudite and literate was not always an indication of homosexuality, communism, et cetera.
