Changing Gender in Twentieth-Century Writing

Kapitel 4 handelt u.a. von der Darstellungen von Lili Elbe als trans* und der Auslassung oder Vernachlässigung, dass Lili Elbe inter* war. Verlagsbeschreibung und Inhaltsverzeichnis:


Explores the depiction of transgender identity in twentieth-century and contemporary literary fiction

Transgender and the Literary Imagination is the first full length study to revisit twentieth century narratives and their afterlives, examining the extent to which they have reflected, shaped or transformed changing understandings of gender. Grounded in feminist scholarship, informed by queer theory and indebted to transgender studies, this book investigates the ways in which transgender identities and histories have been ‘authored by others’, with a focus on literary fiction by British, Irish and American authors, life writing and adaptation for stage and screen.

Key Features

  • First full length study of the representation of transgender characters in twentieth century literary fiction
  • Essential overview of key critical issues for the analysis of transgender representation in literary fiction, informed by contemporary cultural debates
  • Original readings of a selection of fiction by British, Irish and American authors, including Angela Carter, Patricia Duncker, David Ebershoff, Jackie Kay and George Moore
  • Original readings of award-winning film adaptations, Albert Nobbs (2011) and The Danish Girl (2016)
