Description: Sexuality and Form proposes that in Western encounters with homosexuality, the flesh emerges as both a problem and a promise at the limits of the narrative arts. In this far-ranging series of readings that considers Italian humanism, art history, Elizabethan drama, early experimental science, and contemporary theory, Graham L. Hammill explores the insistence of the flesh as an element of carnality.

Beginning with humanist aesthetics and the art of war, Hammill first discusses how the body gets aligned with various and subtle forms of violence. Hammill then explores the works of Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Christopher Marlowe, and Francis Bacon, demonstrating how the flesh is bruised into visibility by its contact with the fantasies underwriting ideals of secular Renaissance civility.

Sexuality and Form is an ambitious new study of sexuality, aesthetics, and epistemology that synthesizes queer theory and psychoanalysis within a Renaissance framework.
