Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Condnsd & Updtd. Language: English. Brand new Book. Exploring nearly sixty years of memoir and autobiography, "Writing Desire" examines the changing identity of gay men writing within a historical context. Distinguished scholar and psychoanalyst Bertram J. Cohler has carefully selected a diverse group of ten men, including historians, activists, journalists, poets, performance artists, and bloggers, whose life writing evokes the evolution of gay life in twentieth-century America. By contrasting the personal experience of these disparate writers, Cohler illustrates the social transformations that these men helped shape. Among Cohler's diverse subjects is Alan Helms, whose journey from Indiana to New York's gay society represents the passage of men who came of age in the 1950s and 1960s, when homosexuality was considered a hidden "disease." The liberating effects of Stonewall's aftermath are chronicled in the life of Arnie Kantrowitz, the prototypical activist for gay rights in the 1970s and the founder of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation. The artistic works of Tim Miller and Mark Doty evoke loss and shock during the early stages of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. Cohler rounds out this collective group portrait by looking at the newest generation of writers in the Internet age via the blog of Bryan, who did the previously unthinkable: he "outed" himself to millions of people. A compelling mix of social history and personal biography, "Writing Desire" distills the experience of three generations of gay America. Seller Inventory # AAN9780299222048
