Abstract
This volume demarcates the distinctly pederastic elements within a series of highly nuanced, Uranian texts. In the face of stringent opposition, these Uranians and their literary and aesthetic works established an eccentric positionality worthy of consideration - to further our understanding of Victorian sexuality and culture. Chapter one considers recent engagements of Gerard Manley Hopkins's eroticism; chapter two considers Hopkins's unique problematics; chapter three is a close reading of Hopkins's 'Epithalamion'; chapter four considers the pederastic pedagogy advocated by Walter Pater in 'Marius the Epicurean'; chapter five considers the breach between Pater and Oscar Wilde facilitated by Pater's review of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. The conclusion considers the Uranian continuum stretching from William Johnson to Guy Davenport.
Abstract (in Czech)
Svazek vymezuje pederastické prvky zřetelné v řadě vysoce nuancovaných uranistických textů. Uranisté navzdory silnému odporu společnosti svým literárním a estetickým dílem vytvořili výstřední pozici, jež zasluhuje pozornost vedoucí k prohloubení našeho pochopení viktoriánské sexuality a kultury. První kapitola se zabývá současným zkoumáním erotismu Gerarda Manley Hopkinse; druhá kapitola se věnuje jedinečné problematice Hopkinse; třetí kapitola je důsledným čtením Hopkinsovy básně „Epithalamion“; čtvrtá kapitola zkoumá pederastickou pedagogiku, jak ji prosazoval Walter Pater v románu „Marius the Epicurean“; patá kapitola se zabývá roztržkou mezi Paterem a Oscarem Wildem, k níž napomohla Paterova recenze Wildeova románu „Obraz Doriana Graye“. V závěru se kniha zabývá kontinuem uranistické tvorby, jež sahá od Williama Johnsona po Guye Davenporta.
