Book Description

This set brings together a collection of classic out-of-print works that offer some surprising new takes on the theme of sexuality in literature. Whether examining new spaces by unrepresented women writers of colour or looking afresh at gay writings of the early twentieth century, this set presents a thought-provoking take on the subject, and as such is an essential reference source.
