About the Author:

IRENE EYNAT-CONFINO is Associate Professor, Department of Theatre Studies, Tel-Aviv University, Israel.

Review:

"Who are the monsters in Jean Cocteau s Infernal Machine ? Eynat-Confino s absorbing study gives us all facets of this central theme of Cocteau s modern classic and the ways monstrosity relates to Cocteau s self image as homosexual and poet. A must read for readers interested in Cocteau, modern French theater, and gender and gay studies. " - John M Clum, Professor of Theater Studies and English Duke University and author of Still Acting Gay: Male Homosexuality in Modern Drama and Something for the Boys: Musical Theater and Gay Culture
