Fat Art, Thin Art PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Fat Art, Thin Art free pdf Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick is best known as a cultural and literary critic, as one of the primary forces behind the development of queer and gay/lesbian studies, and as author of several influential books: "Tendencies," "Epistemology of the Closet," and "Between Men: English Literature and Male Homosocial Desire." The publication of "Fat Art, Thin Art," Sedgwick's first volume of poetry, opens up another dimension of her continuing project of crossing and re-crossing the electrified boundaries between theory, lyric, and narrative. Embodying a decades-long adventure, the poems collected here offer the most accessible and definitive formulations to appear anywhere in Sedgwick's writing on some characteristic subjects and some new ones: passionate attachments within and across genders- queer childhoods of many kinds- the performativity of a long, unconventional marriage- depressiveness, hilarity, and bliss- grave illness- despised and magnetic bodies and bodily parts. In two long fictional poems, a rich narrative momentum engages readers in the mysterious places--including Victorian novels--where characters, sexualities, and fates are unmade and made. Sedgwick's poetry opens an unfamiliar, intimate, daring space that steadily refigures not only what a critic may be, but what a poem can do.
