This unique learn re-evaluates principal texts of the modernist canon - Eliot's early poetry together with The Waste Land, Joyce's Ulysses and Proust's Remembrance of items prior - by means of reading sexual energies and identifications in them which are in most cases considered as perverse. based on glossy cultural discourses and psychosexual categorizations, those deviant wants and identifications feminize males, or are inclined to render them gay.

What emerges is a reconsideration of modernist literature as a complete, and a popularity of the heterogeneous forces which shaped and deformed modernism.
