Transgender and the Literary Imagination

Changing Gender in Twentieth-Century Writing

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearch

Abstract

Transgender and the Literary Imagination is the first full length study to revisit twentieth century narratives and their afterlives, examining the extent to which they have reflected, shaped or transformed changing understandings of gender. Grounded in feminist scholarship, informed by queer theory and indebted to transgender studies, this book investigates the ways in which transgender identities and histories have been 'authored by others', with a focus on literary fiction by British, Irish and American authors, life writing and adaptation for stage and screen.
