Hailed by the "New York Times" as "one of the most influential texts in gender studies, men's studies and gay studies," this book uncovers the homosocial desire between men, from Restoration comedies to Tennyson's "Princess."

Universally cited as the text that ignited gay studies. Rolling Stone "In many ways, the book that turned queer theory from a latent to a manifest discipline." Voice Literary Supplement "Astoshingly powerful... Its insights are breathtaking and its careful attention to history, theory, and politics is exemplary." Gay Community News "Stunning and original readings." Raritan
