Sexual Aesthetics and the Male Homosexual Literary Tradition

Sexual Aesthetics and the Male Homosexual Literary Tradition

Price: 
$20.00

by John Anders
University of Nebraska Press
Hardback

Moving the focus from the strong female characters that American writer Cather (1873-1947) is best known for, Anders looks at the male friendships she portrays, ranging from the social to the sexual. He argues that she worked in the familiar tradition of friendship literature inspired by classical and Christian texts, and also borrowed from a homosexual legacy that is a distinct subset of established literary traditions.
