Short

Camille Naish has written the first formalist study of the provocative French writer Jean Genet. She treats his major texts, from the erotic homosexual elegy Le Condamne a mort (1942) to the highly controversial epic Les Parvents (1966), and links the characteristic structure of his later plays with his relatively obscure first poems and early novels. Dr. Naish’s study insightfully discusses previous critical responses to Genet, examines Genet’s relationship with Cocteau and the Surrealists, and finally takes an original look at humor and parody in this unusual writer.

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
