Throughout history, literature about love between men has reflected contemporary ideas, prejudices, and discourses surrounding homosexuality. This book examines the literary images that have persisted over time in Western literature; it s populated by the schoolmates, sailors, soldiers, workers, police officers, and convicts that appear in books by a diverse set of authors, including Shakespeare, Proust, Foucault, and many others."
