Groundbreaking Lesbian and Gay Novels of the 20th Century
Course DescriptionIn this lecture course, we will look at the groundbreaking mid-twentieth-century lesbian and gay novels of Patricia Highsmith and Christopher Isherwood that paved the way for later lgbtq+ writers openly to discuss homosexuality and sexual identity in their fiction. We will consider Highsmith’s pioneering 1952 novel, The Price of Salt, which later was made into the 2015 critically-acclaimed movie, Carol, directed by Todd Haynes. And we will consider Christopher Isherwood’s classic 1964 novel, A Single Man, often considered his best work, which was transformed memorably into film by Tom Ford in the 2009 movie of the same title.
