This chapter focuses on the significant works and political position of Edward Carpenter. Carpenter was a poet and sexual reformer, and concentrated his efforts on local organizations, especially the Sheffield Socialist Society in which anarchist influence became increasingly strong. The chapter discusses his influence on the socialists of the 1880s and 1890s and then highlights his advocacy of ‘non-governmental society’ and support for syndicalism.
