Queer Dickens

Erotics, Families, Masculinities

Holly Furneaux

  • Locates Dickens in a wider literary and social context alongside authors including Tennyson, Collins, and Whitman
  • Challenges stereotypical notions of Victorian culture by arguing that Dickens points to ways in which the Victorians accommodated diverse gender roles, multiple sexualities, and families of choice
  • Cross-genre study, which considers novels, poetry, life-writing, and journalism, as well as the pertinent political and legal debates of the period
