Queering the Underworld insists on the attention queer reading should seriously pay to hard and unyielding surfaces, often prim and faded in the case of Addams, simultaneously glamorous and abstemious in the case of Cather and kaleidoscopic in the case of Van Vechten and Barnes. Herring is scrupulous - and excellent - in setting his chosen texts in dialogue with each other, with the historical forces that produced them and - perhaps his greatest strength - with the histories of how the criticism that most opens up these texts can be spectacularly blind to the implications of its own readings.

Queering the Underworld examines a range of writers, from Jane Addams and Willa Cather to Carl Van Vechten .

Queering the Underworld examines a range of writers, from Jane Addams and Willa Cather to Carl Van Vechten and Djuna Barnes, revealing how they fulfilled the conventions of slumming literature but undermined its goals, and in the process, queered the genre itself. Their work frustrated the reader’s desire for sexual knowledge, restored the inscrutability of sexual identity, and cast doubt on the value of a homosexual subculture made visible and therefore subject to official control. In this major rethinking of American literature and culture, Scott Herring explores how a key group of authors manipulated this genre to paradoxically evade the confines of sexual identification.

Queering the Underworld : Slumming, Literature, and the Undoing of Lesbian and Gay History.

At the start of the twentieth century, tales of “how the other half lives” experienced a surge in popularity. People looking to go slumming without leaving home turned to these narratives for spectacular revelations of the underworld and sordid details about the deviants who populated it. In this major rethinking of American literature and culture, Scott Herring explores how a key group of authors manipulated this genre to paradoxically evade the confines of sexual identification. Queering the Underworld examines a range of writers, from Jane Addams and Willa Cather to Carl Van Vechten and Djuna Barnes, revealing how they fulfilled the conventions of slumming literature but undermined its goals, and in the process, queered the genre itself. Their work frustrated the reader’s desire for sexual knowledge, restored the inscrutability of sexual identity, and cast doubt on the value of a homosexual subculture made visible and therefore subject to official control.Herring is persuasive and polemical in connecting these writers to ongoing debates about lesbian and gay history and politics, and Queering the Underworld will be widely read by students and scholars of literature, history, and sexuality.
