Just obtained a rather good copy of Gregory Wood's " A History of Gay Literature - the male tradition" At first glance it appears to be rarher comprehensive. Any group members have an opinion of this history?

Within his academic frame, it makes a good starting point, then you can explore all the ideas you like? Go back to Plato, on to Shakespeare, join Plato and Shakespeare together.

The 'Male Tradition' provides an impressive framework within which to explore 'queer' writing ('gay literature' being an essentially modern creation).

Try Mitchell & Leavitt, Pages Passed From Hand to Hand: the hidden tradition of homosexual literature in english from 1748 - 1914.

male tradition

That is literature as subject and genre though, and of course the nature of queeries is genre benre .. so put in Julius Ceasar as Handel's Opera, the McVicar production.

I have another #Antequeerian to add, Alcuin and the cartula which of course made a connection with mentula.

here is rather a good one:

Describing an attempt by Saint Barnard to revive a dead boy, he comments: "He was surely the most unlucky of monks: for never have I heard of a man lying down upon a boy without the boy's arising immediately after the monk."

now that is someone called Walter Map.

Putting this here as Facebook response time useless

The newsletter has much, as usual and as this group is to promote membership I shan't put any of it here, except for a note about a welsh garden, a poem by John Stradling about which I know nothhing and need to follow up, as Virgil and the English landscape garden I have been working on for a long time. Yes, another Butlin's joke

Bowra on Greek Lyric Poetrty, the 1936 original quite a #memorybarrow for how the world was once.

New text on queer theory

Penney Queer Theory

no results it says, as published in 2014 perhaps, by Pluto.

I'm going to be adding some more, as he has a section on Queer Marxism.

Queer Marxism

and this time, touchstone has picked up something.

So I must check what Penney has to say about Floyd.
