Figuring Sex between Men from Shakespeare to Rochester

Paul Hammond

  • A major study of both homosexual desire and homophobia as seventeenth century writers portrayed them.
  • Detailed case-studies of Shakespeare, Rochester, and Marvell, and of satire on James I and other homosexual rulers.
  • Draws on a wide range of poems, plays, letters, and pamphlets, both printed and in MS, much of it previously unknown.
  • By a distinguished seventeenth-century critic.
