La poétique de la durée s’efforce d’apaiser l’hier fiévreux, de tramer ce lointain devenir.

I am interested in the changing relationship between queer identity and literature from 1870 to 1930.  Authors I am interested include Verlaine, Proust, and George’s Eekhoud, as well as medical texts on homosexuality from this period.  I am also interested in the early modern period, especially the work of Cyrano.
