"The refined and academic hedonism of Walter Pater mark him as a type of homosexual with profound aesthetic sensibilities who functions both as a critic of art and as a creator ... Only subtly does his fascination with male beauty betray the real focus of his interests, while he kept his private self deliberately elusive and hidden in his lifetime." - Warren Johansson in Dynes, ed., ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HOMOSEXUALITY (Chicago, St. James Press, 1990), p. 984.
