Abstract

ay subjects have been central to many literary traditions. Yet crossover success are few, as are works on gay topics by straight authors. Equally, openly gay-themed books do not receive the readerships of mainstream or universal concerns. Edited by Richard Canning, and with a foreword by renowned literary critic Harold Bloom, this volume collects 50 succinct esssays by critics, public figures and authors to illuminate the essential titles that all book-worms of every orientation must read. Canning tackles issues of cultural diversity, politics and what makes a work ""gay.
