MetadataShow full item record
Since the publication of Paul Julian Smith's ground-breaking study "Laws of Desire: Questions of homosexuality in Spanish Writing and Film", 1960-1990 (Oxford:Oxford University Press,1992), there has been a steady stream of articles and books analyzing the representations of male same-sex desire in Spanish culture. On the whole, these articles and books have focussed their attention on already well-known authors or film directors such as Juan Goytisolo, Terenci Moix or Pedro Almodóvar. In “Los escribas furiosos: configuraciones homoeróticas en la narrativa española actual”, Alfredo Martínez Expósito carries us several steps further along the path to a more complete understanding of the complex place of male same-sex desire in Spanish culture by filling in some of the gaps left by previous studies.
