Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Parker (English, DePaul U.) examines the emergence of a new kind of heterosexual rhetoric in the early 18th century, a rhetoric that ultimately displaced earlier and more diverse expressions of sexuality and the body. Utilizing queer-theoretical readings of Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, and Eliza Haywood, he counters certain feminist arguments about the nature of masculinity in the period and traces the rise of a modern paradigm of compulsory heterosexuality.
