Edward Carpenter was a British author with an international reputation who primarily wrote non-fiction, as well as some Whitmanesque poetry. Ordained after graduating from Trinity, he left the ministry and devoted himself to social service. His writing explored themes of socialism, his spiritual quest for a new, universal religion, and his homosexuality, especially his belief that he inherited his sexual orientation.

Edward Carpenter (1844-1929) was a British socialist writer and poet, known for his advocacy of natural living, and for his writings on homosexuality and his open espousal of this identity. Carpenter was born to a middle-class family, attended Cambridge University, worked for the University Extension movement in northern England, traveled and lectured, and in 1883 settled in Millthorpe, near Sheffield. In 1891, after his return from a trip to India to study Indian philosophy and religion, he met George Merrill, who would be his companion for nearly forty years. Among his works are Towards Democracy (1883) and The Intermediate Sex (1908). Crane also composed the socialist anthem England Arise!
