Abstract

Abstract:

Reading André Gide's novel Les Faux-monnayeurs (1924) through the lens of Kadji Amin's recent reflections on the historiographically unsteady category of modern pederasty, this article aspires to an understanding of queer as a distinctly narrative model of playfully contrived identity formation. Attention to how queer identities are forged in Gide, and historically in his wake, I argue, will allow new insights into queer theory's perpetual efforts at self-(re)invention.
