Overview

Strategies of Deviance: Studies in Gay Male Representation by Earl Jackson

"Juxtaposing the narrative strategies of Freud, Wilde and Jarman; film pornography and Almodovar; and Dennis Cooper, Robert Glück and Kevin Killian, Jackson offers a delightfully intelligent and inventive reappraisal of key issues in gay representation." —Gay Times

"A major event in gay cultural theory.... the feat of critical imagination is absolutely stunning in its scope and power. [This book] will be definitive in laying out the issues for subsequent writers in gay theory." —David M. Halperin

Earl Jackson examines visual and narrative texts from a variety of genres, including case histories, pornography, science fiction, and experimental prose.
