Early Modern Hermaphrodites: Sex and Other Stories
Foyalty 324

Early Modern Hermaphrodites: Sex and Other Stories (Hardback)

£107.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

From the sixteenth century to the eighteenth century, hermaphrodites were discussed and depicted in a range of artistic, mythological, scientific and erotic contexts. Early Modern Hermaphrodites looks at some of those representations to explore the stories they tell about ambiguous sex and gender in early modern England. Gilbert examines the often contradictory ways in which hermaphrodites were represented as both spiritual ideals and sexual grotesques; as freaks, erotic objects and medical curiosities' and as literary metaphors and signs of social decay.
