By Erin G Carlston

Why have been white bourgeois homosexual male writers so drawn to spies, espionage, and treason within the 20th century? Erin G. Carlston believes such figures and issues have been serious to exploring citizenship and its limits, requisites, and chances within the sleek Western kingdom. via shut readings of Marcel Proust’s novels, W. H. Auden’s poetry, and Tony Kushner’s play Angels in the United States, which all reference real-life espionage situations concerning Jews, homosexuals, or Communists, Carlston connects homosexual men’s fascination with spying to bigger debates concerning the making and contestation of social identity.

Carlston argues that during the trendy West, a particular place has been assigned to these seemed to be marginal to the kingdom as a result of non-visible non secular, political, or sexual modifications. simply because those “invisible Others” existed someplace among the absolutely alien and the totally normative, they evoked acute anxieties in regards to the safeguard and team spirit of the countryside. Incorporating readings of nonliterary cultural artifacts, comparable to trial transcripts, into her research, Carlston pinpoints moments within which nationwide self-conceptions in France, England, and the U.S. grew volatile. Concentrating particularly at the Dreyfus affair in France, the defections of Communist spies within the U.K., and the Rosenberg case within the usa, Carlston without delay hyperlinks twentieth-century tensions round citizenship to the social and political matters of 3 generations of influential writers.
