Uncloseting Drama: Modernism's Queer Theatres

Nick Salvato


In this elegant book, modernism is illuminated through little-known but striking works by Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, and others who revived the “closet drama”—plays written largely for private reading—as a means of exploring forbidden sexualities.

Keywords: closet drama, private reading, sexuality, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein
