Entries by Amy Farmer
literature >> Coward, Sir Noël
Although Coward's plays are about heterosexual couples, they are written in the language and spirit of camp and reject traditional domestic values.
literature >> Genet, Jean
Jean Genet's work has left a powerful legacy to post-modernity and remains a provocation to questions of gay identity.
literature >> Rochester, John Wilmot, Earl of
In his poetry and his dramatic farce Sodom, the Restoration rake Rochester depicts heterosexual love as imperfect or incomplete and offers homosexual intercourse as a natural alternative.
