MetadataShow full item record
“Confession, Authorship, and Queer Identity in Poetry” explores critical theories around sexuality using confession-based poetry and draws on the authority of the poet with an LGBTQ+ identity. Confession is related to the “coming out” experience and the cultural significance of a queer identity is investigated and exemplified throughout the poems. The introductory essay also includes an analysis of how contemporary poets use language to explore their identity and how the author investigates the importance of identity to her work.
