Fruits of Sodom: The Critical Erotics of Early Modern Women's Writing

From: Parergon
Volume 29, Number 2, 2012
pp. 175-192 | 10.1353/pgn.2012.0065



The critical erotics, modern and early modern, which underwrite the construction of 'early modern women's writing' as a field are figuratively aligned with 'the fruits of sodom'. By attending to the motives, genealogies, and textual strategies of contemporary scholars alongside those on whom and with whom they write - the early modern authors who, in tandem with their modern interlocutors, constitute the field as a dynamic literary-historiographical object - I hope to advance an avowedly queer formalist critical practice.
