Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Overall this text is lively and thought-provoking, and is a welcome contribution to the growing body of work on sexual representation and its history." - Comparative Drama"This provocative and interesting book will draw readers' attention to a wide range of Restoration and eighteenth-century texts with which many will be unfamiliar. The book successfully estranges the Renaissance and helps us to see heterosexual attachments as distrusted, branded as sinful, pursued as criminal. Bach also shows us, in detail, the process by which the Restoration and eighteenth century rewrote the Renaissance. This is a rich, thought-provoking, valuable book." - Frances E. Dolan, University of California, Davis
