This is the first book-length scholarly treatment
in English of the Brazilian poet Glauco
work, some of which was written during Brazil's
dictatorship (1964-85). The author highlights
Mattoso's themes of
homosexuality, fetishism, and symbolic
sadomasochism within a context
of a comparative examination of transgressive
literature in the Western
canon (for example, the French poete maudit,
such as Rimbaud,
Baudelaire, and Verlaine) with particular emphasis
literature from the Middle Ages to the present.
