Homoeroticism and the political imagination in Irish writing

Revolutionary bodies traces a style of homoerotic writing in twentieth-century and contemporary Irish fiction. As this study demonstrates, writers in that tradition explored a broad spectrum of cultural and political concerns, while experimenting with the conventions of literary realism. We witness how, in these various works, the longing for the male body is insistently associated with utopian political desire. Developing a series of innovative readings, the argument proceeds through three author-centred chapters (Brendan Behan; John Broderick; Colm Tóibín) followed by two chapters on Irish gay fiction and ‘Celtic Tiger’ fiction. The latter two chapters focus on work by Keith Ridgway, Jamie O’Neill, Micheál Ó Conghaile and Barry McCrea, among others. Revolutionary Bodies prompts us to reconsider the relationship between aesthetics, literature and sexual liberation.

undergraduate courses, for which the first course reader, the Lesbian and Gay Studies Reader , was published in 1993. The designating terminology for this field is fluid and shifting, driven by a desire to be as inclusive as possible. At present (towards the end of the second decade of the millennium) the most-used terms are acronyms like LGBT, denoting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender, or LGBTQ, with the added ‘Q’ denoting either ‘Queer’ or ‘Questioning’. Usually a noun follows, such as ‘community’ or ‘studies’ or ‘theory’. LGBT studies designates a potentially huge

being activists to academics. According to Sally Munt, ‘anyone working in lesbian and gay studies is assumed to be a protagonist’ and this ‘critical naiveté’ serves to continually marginalise lesbian and gay studies.18 Thus the shift into the academy might have been a way out of the stasis of the Left, but at the same time it has reintegrated the gay movement into a respectable society where upon it could once more be marginalised. 8 Gay men and the Left in post-war Britain There have been recent moves to problematise this ‘personal turn’.
