Synopsis: The central figure in black gay literary history, James Baldwin has become a familiar touchstone for queer scholarship in the academy. Matt Brim’s James Baldwin and the Queer Imagination draws on the contributions of queer theory and black queer studies to critically engage with and complicate the project of queering Baldwin and his work. Brim argues that Baldwin animates and, in contrast, disrupts both the black gay literary tradition and the queer theoretical enterprise that have claimed him. More paradoxically, even as Baldwin’s fiction brilliantly succeeds in imagining queer intersections of race and sexuality, it simultaneously exhibits striking queer failures, whether exploiting gay love or erasing black lesbian desire. Brim thus argues that Baldwin’s work is deeply marked by ruptures of the “unqueer” into transcendent queer thought—and that readers must sustain rather than override this paradoxical dynamic within acts of queer imagination.

About the Author: Matt Brim is Associate Professor of Queer Studies in the English department at the College of Staten Island, CUNY.

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For many readers and scholars, James Baldwin occupies so central a place in black gay literary history that he has become a key representative for queer creative culture. James Baldwin and the Queer Imagination seeks to complicate this view by providing a sustained investigation of the queer implications of Baldwin s writing while addressing the problematic appropriation of Baldwin as the standard-bearer of queer literary history and African American writing. Author Matt Brim argues that Baldwin s queer imagination is highly complex and anything but obvious, that queerness emerges unevenly in Baldwin s fiction, in ways that can be as restrictive as they are revelatory, and that his work exemplifies what the author terms an unqueer undercurrent present in queer creative thought. In demonstrating Baldwin s ambiguity, Brim also provides a critique of queerness from within queer studies. Seller Inventory # AAN9780472072347
