Queer edited by Frank Wynne

Queer edited by Frank Wynne


Queer: A Collection of LGBTQ Writing from Ancient Times to Yesterday, a new anthology of queer writing. 


Drawing together writing from Catullus to Sappho, from Arthur Rimbaud to Anne Lister and Armistead Maupin, translator Frank Wynne has collected eighty of the finest works representing queer love by LGBTQ authors.


These pieces straddle the spectrum of queer experience, from Verlaine's sonnet in praise of his lover's arse and Emily Dickinson's exhortation of a woman's beauty, to Alison Bechdel's graphic novel of her coming out, Juno Dawson's reflections on gender and Oscar Wilde's 'De Profundis'. Contains writing by queer literary icons such as Audre Lorde and Larry Kramer but also emerging queer, trans and NB writers such as Keith Jarrett, Zhang Yueran and Niviaq Korneliussen. 


With stories, poems, extracts and scenes from countries the world over, Queer is an unabashed and unapologetic anthology, which gives voice to those often silenced.
