Robert Aldrich - The Seduction of the Mediterranean : Writing, Art and Homosexual Fantasy - Gay Non-Fiction Books  All Books by Robert Aldrich - Author of : The Seduction of the Mediterranean : Writing, Art and Homosexual Fantasy
Paperback - 259 pages (November 1993)
Routledge; ISBN: 0415093120

"Gay Literature Studies; Through an exploration of 40 figures in European culture, this book argues that the Mediterranean, classical and contemporary, was the central theme in homoerotic writing and art from the 1750s to the 1950s. Episodes of exile, murder, drug-taking, wild homosexual orgies and court cases are woven into an original study of a significant theme in European culture. The myth of a homoerotic Mediterranean made a major contribution to general attitudes towards Antiquity, the Renaissance and modern Italy and Greece."

Still Acting Gay chronicles the transition of the gay man as subject for sensational melodrama to creator of many of the most powerful and celebrated plays of the late 20th century."

Robert Drake - The Gay Canon : Great Books Every Gay Man Should Read - Gay Non-Fiction Books All Books by Robert Drake - Author of : The Gay Canon : Great Books Every Gay Man Should Read
Paperback - 288 pages (November 10, 1998) 
Doubleday; ISBN: 0385492286

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Gay Literature Studies Books; There are countless works of interest to gay men in print right now--anthologies, novels, memoirs, and more. It is a reflection of progress that there is such an openly recognizable culture. Yet how to make sense of the choices offered? What do gay men need to read? What books have shaped the gay heart, mind, and soul? 
The Gay Canon gives its readers answers to these questions. Not only does it list the one hundred great gay books that have influenced writers and continue to shape the gay imagination, it also provides a deeper, more comprehensive look at the twenty-six most seminal works, each of which is followed by a series of useful group discussion questions. Reaching all the way back to Gilgamesh and continuing through classics like Leaves of Grass, Confessions of a Mask, and The Wild Boys, as well as more recent books like Borrowed Time, The Gay Canon consistently avoids impenetrable academic literary criticism in favor of a more popular introduction for general readers and book groups.
The Gay Canon
is a book to give to any young man just coming out, a book every gay reading group will want to rely on, and--most important--a book that will enrich and improve the gay story that continues to be written."
