About the Authors
  • Eric Haralson examines the far-reaching changes in gender politics and the emergence of modern male homosexuality in writings of Henry James and three authors greatly influenced by him: Willa Cather, Gertrude Stein, and Ernest Hemingway. Emphasizing American masculinity portrayed in fiction between 1875 and 1935, Haralson traces James' engagement with sexual politics from his first novels of the 1870s to his "major phase" at the turn of the century.

    • Sheds light on the influence of Henry James's writings about sexuality on major American writers of the modern generation
    • Covers a range of writers, including Willa Cather, Henry James, Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein
    • Will be of interest to scholars of Modernism and Gay and Lesbian studies
