Between Men: English Literature & Male Homosocial Desire

£10.99

Product description

This text examines men's relationships with one another in English literature and the ways those relationships affect women. Central to this study is Sedgwick's conception of "male homosocial desire": this continuum includes the elements of both homosexuality and homophobia in male-male relationships and extends desire far beyond the simply sexual. She argues that the increasing secular, psychological and descriptive power of male homophobia not only affected a male homosexual minority but also radically shaped the erotic, class and national ideologies of English men and women as a whole. This book is in good condition apart from some minor creasing to the corners of and scratches to the cover, which also has a lot of creasing to the cellophane covering its spine. The pages are in very good condition apart from some very minor dogging to the corners. The page block (only visible when the book is closed) has some small brown marks, scratches and some creaming.
