Robert Hugh Benson
Asa young man, he found the prospect of marriage "quite inconceivable."
In 1904, soon after becoming a Catholic priest, he formed a passionate friendship with Frederick Rolfe. For two years, they exchanged letters "not only weekly, but at times daily, and of an intimate character, exhaustingly charged with emotion."
