Summary

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick was one of the most significant literary theorists of the last forty years and a key figure in contemporary queer theory. In this engaging and inspiring guide, Jason Edwards:

  • introduces and explains key terms such as affects, the first person, homosocialities, and queer taxonomies, performativities and cusps
  • considers Sedgwick’s poetry and textile art alongside her theoretical texts
  • encourages a personal as well as an academic response to Sedgwick’s work, suggesting how life-changing it can be
  • offers detailed suggestions for further reading

Written in an accessible and direct style, Edwards indicates the impact that Sedgwick’s work continues to have on writers, readers, and literary and cultural theory today.
