Am y llyfr

Mae'r gyfrol hon yn ymchwilio i'r rhan a chwaraeir gan y cysyniad o'r annaearol a'r rhyfedd, fel y diffiniwyd ef gan Sigmund Freud a damcaniaethwyr eraill, yn y potread o hoywon a gafwyd mewn ffuglen gyfoes rhwng 1980-2007.


Palmer's argument is clear: the uncanny has provided fertile ground for writers attempting to negotiate the intricacies of the queer experience. For that reason, The New Uncanny is not only an interesting intervention in Gothic scholarship, but also to queer literary criticism. Proving that queer writing is very much in currency, Palmer manages to impress the urgency of such writing and the need to recast its relation to the uncanny as not tangential but endemic to queer existence. She proposes in her conclusion that, whilst concerned with similar ideas, lesbian and male gay writing generally avoid combined portrayals of queer desire, and that, as a result of queer influence, the two might merge and interrelate. Xavier Aldana Reyes, The Gothic Imagination
