Summary
  • "Sympathetic and imaginative, this elegantly written book illuminates the interrelation of eros and politics in ways that are refreshingly honest about the risky but real pleasure of submission to power. Sanchez traces the implications of such pleasure for Renaissance texts by both men and women with a subtlety that makes submitting to Erotic Subjects an unambiguous delight."--Anne Lake Prescott, Barnard College
  • "This is an accomplished and professional piece of work. Erotic Subjects shows how early modern works overtly concerned with love and desire are in fact fraught with reflection upon contemporary politics, as the relations of wooer and wooed, whether compliant or resistant, allegorize the relations between ruler and ruled. Sanchez writes fluently and engagingly, dealing in complex concepts and their nuances while taking her reader with her."--Helen Hackett, University College London
  • "That the personal is political has been a truism since the feminist movement of the 1970s. That the political might equally be personal is no less true, but until Sanchez, no one has leveraged this insight to analyze political thinking in Renaissance literature. Sanchez's feminist reading of political attachment is thoroughly informed by a queer theory made perversely and elegantly relevant to a broad range of early modern writers."--Valerie Traub, University of Michigan -- Book Jacket
