Reviews

"At once invitingly stylish and excitingly lucid, Love's Litany disentangles a rich, distinct tradition of philosophizing homoerotic love that looks back to Romanticism and urges forward toward modernism—toward the passionate merging, crystallization, camaraderie, experimentation, and mortal loss that mark our own fin de siècle."

—Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Duke University

"Everywhere tenderly epigrammatic, Kevin Kopelson's voice—moving with a litigator's clean, panoptic brio—demonstrates that critique can be a form of courtship, even a form of love."

—Wayne Koestenbaum, Yale University
