Inhaltsangabe: This collection of twenty-three essays sets its sights on the points of queerness, marginality, and alterity already present within the German canon and introduces further difference and deviation in the form of openly gay German literature in order to promote the always-ongoing shift in cultural representation. Queering the Canon provides new analyses, from queer perspectives, of texts by authors whose names are familiar to canonical lists, including Goethe, Schiller, Thomas and Klaus Mann, Ingeborg Bachmann, Christa Reinig, and Elfriede Jelinek. It also makes welcome room for discussions of literary works that have seldom received scholarly attention.
A wonderfully rich collection of important new work in gender, sexuality, lesbian and gay studies, and queer theory applied to German culture, literature, and film.
This important work will mark an end to German studies' reluctance to ask questions about sexuality, a strange elision in the field that can legitimately be said to have begun it all. This is a book anyone interested in current debates on gender and the body will find indispensable. ( Robert Martin, Université de Montréal)
This anthology offers the first comprehensive collection of queer readings in German Studies, spanning a vast field of scholarly interests. From medieval poetry to contemporary film; from Thomas Mann to Rosa von Praunheim; from 19th-century demographical views of homosexuality to the (Judith) Butler boom in Germany today, it covers all the bases.
Queering the Canon is truly mandatory reading for anyone interested in contemporary theorizations of German culture. ( Marcia Klotz, University College Irvine)
