Foundlings: Lesbian and Gay Historical Emotion before Stonewall (Series Q)
About this product Product Information What is it like to feel historical? In Foundlings Christopher Nealon analyzes texts produced by American gay men and lesbians in the first half of the twentieth century-poems by Hart Crane, vels by Willa Cather, gay male physique magazines, and lesbian pulp fiction. Nealon brings these diverse works together by highlighting a coming-of-age narrative he calls foundling -a term for queer disaffiliation from and desire for family, nation, and history.
The young runaways in Cather's vels, the way critics conflated Crane's homosexual body with his verse, the suggestive poses and utopian captions of muscle magazines, and Beebo Brinker, the aging butch heroine from Ann Bann's pulp vels-all embody for Nealon the uncertain space between two models of lesbian and gay sexuality. The inversion model dominant in the first half of the century held that homosexuals are souls of one gender trapped in the body of ather, while the more contemporary ethnic model refers to the existence of a distinct and collective culture among gay men and lesbians.

Item description Drawing a vivid picture of the longing for connection found in these texts, Nealon points to the particularly unfinished nature of lesbian and gay history. The 'inversion' model that was dominant in the first half of the century, he explains, held that homosexuals are souls of one gender trapped in the body of another, while the more contemporary 'ethnic' model refers to the existence of a distinct and collective culture among gays and lesbians.
