Summary
"Dazzling intelligence radiates here, out from sentences giving such pleasure, yielding the finest devotion I've seen to literature's own theoretical force. Coviello listens, carefully, brilliantly, for the flickerings, the liquid meanderings, all too easily explained as "sexual"--Or never even perceived at all. Here is a critic as joyful as Whitman, with his dark core fully afire."--Kathryn Bond Stockton, Distinguished Professor of English at University of Utah In nineteenth-century America-before the scandalous trial of Oscar Wilde, before the public emergence of categories like homo- and heterosexuality--what were the parameters of sex?
