French Literature before the Twentieth Century
 
French Literature before the Nineteenth Century provides sparse examples of homoeroticism, but Nineteenth-Century French Literature witnessed a dramatic increase in representations of same-sex eroticism, a development that can be traced both to literary trends and to historical change.

  William S. Burroughs: A Man Within

William S. Burroughs: A Man Within
 
Filmmaker Yony Leyser's documentary William S. Burroughs: A Man Within (2010) introduces Burroughs (1914-1997) as a leading writer who helped construct the Beat Generation, was an important gay icon, inspired the counterculture of the 1960s, and was the muse and godfather of Punk Rock. According to reviewer Wik Wikholm, the film is an excellent and unflinching introduction to Burrough's hard-to-like personality, his importance as a writer and artist, and his influence on American cultural history.
