Book Description:

This new study of the major French author André Gide (1869-1951) makes a powerful contribution to current debates in gender, feminist, and queer theory. Gide's sexuality was explicitly central to everything he wrote, but it was complex, moved as much by undesire as desire and the fascination for crime, education, virtue, or play. Naomi Segal traces the fluidity of motivation throughout his fiction and non-fiction, through the analogy of the mechanical processesof the male body.
