"The Politics and Poetics of Camp" is a radical reappraisal of the
meaning and discourse of camp. The contributors look at both the
meaning and the uses of camp performance, and ask: is camp a style,
or a witty but nonetheless powerful cultural critique?These essays
investigate camp from its early formations in the 17th and 18th
century to its present manifestations in queer theatre and
literature. They also take a look at the complex relationship
between queer discourse and decidedly un-queer pop culture
appropriations on film and on the stage."The Politics and Poetics
of Camp" is a collection of essays by leading critics working in
queer theory, from a number of disciplinary perspectives.
