Abstract

This essay reads Colette’s The Pure and the Impure from the perspective of critical transgender historiography. It argues that the text’s effort to redeem certain forms of gender variance by purging them of any association with subculture, fashion, and time symptomatizes an acute anxiety about the historicity of gender transitivity.
