French gay modernism

Schehr, Lawrence R

A study of the representation of gayness in French modernist fiction during the 1920s & 1930s. Schehr explains how earlier, carefully encoded representations served as a basis that allowed homosexual relationships in fiction to be transformed from scandalous secrets to sets of relationships
