The reason? Sex and politics.

And he hated moralists, as shown by this poem with a title longer than itself:

        On hearing that the Students of our New University  have joined
        the Agitation against Immoral Literature

        Where, where but here have Pride and Truth,
        That long to give themselves for wage,
        To shake their wicked sides at youth
        Restraining reckless middle age?

Cheers,

Hugh
