Context: Appendix 1 in the Memoirs (Symonds' case study for sexual inversion) mentions his attraction to Sand's Anzoleto happening at the same time as his attractions to Shakespeare's Adonis and Homer's Hermes (page 531), which suggests that the edition of Consuelo he read was an early edition that would have existed during his early childhood, which points to any of the editions published in the 1840s or early 1850s.
Frequency Mentioned: Twice; 1:254 (152) "Consuelo & Molière are a real blessing."
