4 - 6 days availability
Hart Crane's Queer Modernist Aesthetic argues that the aspects of experience which modernists sought to interrogate - time, space, and material things - were challenged further by Crane's queer poetics. Reading Crane alongside contemporary queer theory shows how he creates an alternative form of modernism.
Niall Munro is Senior Lecturer in American Literature at Oxford Brookes University, UK.
