Performing the Dandy: Manuel Machado and the Anxiety of Masculinity

University Press of the South, 2003 - 242 páginas
Dandyism's queerness, both in the traditional sense of its strangeness and oddness regarding conventionality and in the contemporary sense of resisting and contesting imprisoning gender and sexual labels, including homosexuality, underscores reading Machado and his poetry differently. Given the poet's fondness for the visual arts, as well as the pictorial quality of his verse, the image of the museum functions as an appropriate phenomenological space where to house, organize, categorize and display Machado's diverse poetry in order to examine and analyze the desires of this dandy period."--BOOK JACKET.
