9780198186939: Figuring Sex between Men from Shakespeare to Rochester

Paul Hammond explores the representation of sexual relations between men in English literature of the seventeenth century. He includes detailed readings of Shakespeare's Sonnets, and shows how his plays added homosexual elements to his source stories. He also analyses the satirical representation of homosexual kings such as James I and William III, and the homoerotic poetry of Marvell and Rochester.

About the Author:

Paul Hammond is a Professor of Seventeenth-Century English Literature, University of Leeds.

Review:


"A difficult project accomplished with considerable aplomb.... Deft handling of both the canonical texts and a wealth of unpublished manuscripts; must-have for any serious student of Shakespeare or Renaissance literature."--Virginia Quarterly Review


"This useful and learned study charts a trajectory from the homoeroticism and homosexual displays of Jacobean courtly society and its written lyrics of male-male passion to the greater textual 'closeting' of such expression at the close of the century.... This suggestive, provocative, and useful book introduces much new information , especially little-known manuscript texts and clarifying variants for better-known published works... Admirable and worthwhile."--The Scriblerian


"[Hammond] examines many texts, both famous works and obscure items (some from manuscript), elucidating in impressive...fashion the rhetorical resources of gay language.... The book's tour de force [is] a reading of the most celebrated poem of heterosexual love in the language, Andrew Marvell's 'To His Coy Mistress,' as a tissue of 'homosexual pre-texts'.... Hammond's informed and informative volume abounds in new ideas and new readings; students and scholars in Renaissance literature neglect it at their peril. Highly recommended."--Choice

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Paul Hammond explores how sexual relationships between men were represented in English literature during the seventeenth century. Figuring Sex between Men from Shakespeare to Rochester is built around two principal themes: firstly the literary strategies through which writers created imagined spaces for the expression of homosexual desire; and secondly the ways in which such texts were subsequently edited and adapted to remove these references to sex between men. The author begins with a wide-ranging analysis of the forms in which both homosexual desire and homophobic hatred were expressed in the period, focusing on the problems of defining male relationships, the erotic dimension to male friendships, and the uses of classical settings. Subsequent chapters offer four case studies. The first focuses on how Shakespeare adapted his sources to introduce the possibility of sexual relations between male characters, with special attention to Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice, and the Sonnets, and shows how these elements were removed in later adaptations of his plays and poems. Subsequent chapters chart the often satirical representation of homosexual rulers from James I to William III; the ambiguous sexuality figured in the poetry of Andrew Marvell; and the libertine homoeroticism of the poetry of the Earl of Rochester. Paul Hammond draws on a wide range of poems, plays, letters, and pamphlets, and discusses a substantial amount of previously unknown material from both printed and manuscript sources.
