Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explores the implications of newspaper representations of Oscar Wilde's 1895 trial--in particular the discourse on "manliness," "deviancy," and the "proper" Englishman--and elucidates the ways in which current attitudes toward hetero- and homosexuality have foundations in the 19th century.
