About this product
- DescriptionA must-read for scholars of visuality, gender and sexuality. Denisoff's study explores the ways in which gothic, sensation and ir literature and cinema manipulated common tions of the visual in order to challenge sex- and gender-based assumptions that marginalized certain people and desires. Addressing authors and directors such as Mary Braddon, Wilkie Collins, Oscar Wilde, Vern Lee, Virigina Woolf, Daphne du Maurier, Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger and Fritz Lang, this study shows that what a society gets is often what it tries hardest t to see.
