Busilak: New LGBTQ Poetry from the Philippines

Sold out

The poetry suites of the LGBTQ poets in this [book] are post confessional precisely in these respects: they “confess” their makers’ gendered and sexual subjectivities, both textually, through their works’ representational content, and extra-textually, by the sheer performativity of their having been included in [the first Global GRACE LGBTQ National Writers Workshop]. They also all evince varying degrees of self-disclosure, which may be reckoned in terms of the polarity of timidity on one hand, and excess on the other.
