Arguing that, far from confirming human values, literature more often than not violates them, this book begins with a polemical attack on the spurious radicalism of some fashionable academic theories about desire and sexual dissidence. The author then examines the ways in which the media, literary critics and the state, as well as these literary theorists, all deny or repress the disturbing and dangerous knowledge conveyed by literature. His own account of the volatile connections between aesthetics, desire, politics and censorship unfolds through topics such as homosexuality, bisexuality, sexual disgust and the disturbing relations between art and inhumanity, and through insights into a wide range of authors, including Euripides, Shakespeare, Tennyson and Yeats. Mainly, this book is about how the experience of desire in life and art compromises our most cherished ethical beliefs; how it sets dissident desire against not just oppressive social life, but also against what are widely agreed to be the necessary limits of civilization itself. If this helps make art irresistible and of indispensable value, it follows too that there are reasonable grounds for wanting to censor it. This book should be useful for students and scholars of literary, gender and cultural studies.
