Swords in Myrtle Dress'd: Towards a Rhetoric of Sodom : Gay Readings of Homosexual Politics and Poetics in the Eighteenth Century

Portada
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1998 - 244 páginas
Part 1 offers readings of homosexuality in early homophobic tracts, in Grub Street productions lampooning a preferment dispute involving the bishop of London, in the London newspapers, in political pamphlets attacking Lord Hervey, and in a casebook by a clergyman defending himself against the charge of sodomizing one of his own parishioners. Part 2 offers readings of homoeroticism in Akenside's The Pleasures of Imagination and his Odes, where homosexuality manifests itself indirectly, through elision and through Akenside's own revision of his most homoerotic passages.
