Catholic Figures, Queer Narratives

Full Product Description

This new volume of essays examines the relationship between Catholicism and homosexuality. Why did so many literary Modernists embrace Catholicism? What is their relationship between historical homophobia and contemporary struggles between the Church and the homosexual? Moving from the Gothic to the late Twentieth-century, from Britain to America and France, "Catholic Figures, Queer Narratives" interrogates what is queer about Catholicism and what is modern about homosexuality. The result is a radical revision of the sacred - in life and art, the body and devotion.

Catholic Figures, Queer Narratives was published by Palgrave Macmillan in November 2006. The ISBN for Catholic Figures, Queer Narratives is 9780230008311.
