Summary
Based on the author's boarding school experiences at Radley College in the late 1870s, this is an extraordinary psychological study of the eponymous hero, tracing his thoughts and emotions as he proceeds from boyhood towards young adulthood: his unhappiness at school, his affection for the older boy Orr and later his love for his friend L. C. 'Elsie' Southwood. Though presented in the safer guise of a story of 'schoolboy friendships', it is also one of the earliest gay-themed English novels ever published. Praised by late-Victorian critics, Jaspar Tristram quickly became a cult favourite in gay literary circles, counting Oscar Wilde (who called it 'charming'), Edward Carpenter, and Marc-Andre Raffalovich among its admirers, and it is also a likely influence on E. M. Forster's Maurice and Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited
