ITALIAN MASCULINITY AS QUEER MELODRAMA: CARAVAGGIO, PUCCINI, CONTEMPORARY CINEMA. John Champagne. Palgrave Macmillan, St. Martin's Press, Inc., New York, 2015. Global Masculinities. 280 pp. 21 x 13 cm. ISBN 9781137474803 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Offering queer analyses of paintings by Caravaggio and Puccini and films by Ozpetek, Amelio, and Grimaldi, John Champagne argues that Italian masculinity has often been articulated through melodrama. Reading the melodramatic sensibility across three different periods in Italian history and three different media, this book sheds light on Italy's contribution to the development of the melodramatic sensibility. Wide in scope and multidisciplinary in approach, this much-needed study shows the vital role of affect for both Italian history and masculinity studies.
