Editorial Reviews

Review

"Writing the Love of Boys makes an important contribution to the study of sexuality in modern Japan. Jeffrey Angles thoughtfully examines the representation of male-male sexuality in the work of three prewar Japanese writers, offering insightful commentary on the specific features of how each writer depicts male-male desire and uses their texts as a lens through which to explore larger currents in the literary and sexual culture of the time." —Jim Reichert, author of In the Company of Men: Representations of Male-Male Sexuality in Meiji Literature



"Angles vividly resurrects a current of Japanese literary modernism—namely, its estheticization of the ‘love of boys’—that previous narratives have obscured. From the perspective of queer history and culture the trio of authors on whom he focuses—Kaita, Ranpo, Taruho—form a fascinating and lastingly influential lineage." —Gregory Pflugfelder, Columbia University

About the Author

Jeffrey Angles is associate professor of modern Japanese literature and translation studies at Western Michigan University.
