Performing the Dandy

"Performing the Dandy: Manuel Machado and the Anxiety of Masculinity is an interpretation of the poetry of Spaniard Manuel Machado (1874-1947) around the issue of identity in general and the performativity of gender in particular. The book constructs both the poet and his poetic voice as a dandy (an individual whose highly performative, aristocratic and glamorous attitude of dissidence against the established order is consciously and publicly expressed through a particular style, mainly sartorial), thus inquiring into Machado's desires and the anxiety they posit regarding patriarchal heteronormative masculinity. Dandyism's queerness, both in the traditional sense of its strangeness and oddness regarding conventionality and in the contemporary sense of resisting and contesting imprisoning gender and sexual labels, including homosexuality, underscores reading Machado and his poetry differently. Given the poet's fondness for the visual arts, as well as the pictorial quality of his verse, the image of the museum functions as an appropriate phenomenological space where to house, organize, categorize and display Machado's diverse poetry in order to examine and analyze the desires of this dandy period."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
