9780521089852: Henry James and Sexuality

Henry James and Sexuality offers a bold, new interpretation of James' fiction. Hugh Stevens argues that James' writing contains daring and radical representations of transgressive desires and marginalized sexual identities. He demonstrates the importance of incestuous desire, masochistic fantasy, and same-sex passions in a body of fiction that ostensibly conforms to, while ironically mocking, the contemporary moral and publishing codes James faced. This original and exciting work will transform our understanding of this most enigmatic of writers.

Review:

"Combining extraordinary theoretical range and subtlety with deft readings of a swath of Jamesian prose, Hugh Stevens makes the most comprehensive and compelling argument to date for James's place in queer literary history, setting a high standard indeed for interlocutors to come." Henry James Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In Henry James and Sexuality, Hugh Stevens argues for a new interpretation of James s fiction. Stevens argues that James s writing contains daring and radical representations of transgressive desires and marginalized sexual identities. He demonstrates the importance of incestuous desire, masochistic fantasy, and same-sex passions in a body of fiction which ostensibly conforms to, while ironically mocking, the contemporary moral and publishing codes James faced. James critiques the very notion of sexual identity, and depicts the radical play of desires which exceed and disrupt any stable construction of identity. In a number of his major novels and tales, Stevens argues, James anticipates the main features of modern gay or queer fiction through plots and narrative strategies, which opposes heterosexual marriage and homo-erotic friendship. This original and exciting work will transform our understanding of this most enigmatic of writers. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521089852
