About this Item

8vo. xii+214pp., illustrations, notes, biblio., index. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, hermaphrodites were discussed and depicted in a range of artistic, mythological, scientific and erotic contexts. EARLY MODERN HERMAPHRODITES looks at some of those representations to explore the stories they tell us about ambiguous sex and gender in early modern England. Gilbert examines the often contradictory ways in which hermaphrodites were represented both as spiritual ideals and sexual grotesques; as freaks, erotic objects and medical curiosities; and as literary metaphors and signs of social decay. Boards in dust jacket. Light shelfwear. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 53516
