Author: Steven Bruhm
Publisher: Minneapolis : University of Minnesota Press, ©2001.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Extending the horizons of queer, feminist, and psychoanalytic theory, this book challenges the twentieth century's predominant understanding of narcissism--and the predominantly narcissistic qualities of male same-sex desire--as allegedly solipsistic, immature, sterile, antisocial, and apolitical. Bruhm argues that Narcissus has, instead, served to trouble the very cultural and gendered norms that define him.

Abstract:

Extending the horizons of queer, feminist, and psychoanalytic theory, this book challenges the twentieth century's predominant understanding of narcissism--and the predominantly narcissistic qualities of male same-sex desire--as allegedly solipsistic, immature, sterile, antisocial, and apolitical. Bruhm argues that Narcissus has, instead, served to trouble the very cultural and gendered norms that define him.
