In this thoughtful study, historian and opera lover Robinson relates music to the history of ideas by analyzing several major operas: The Marriage of Figaro, The Barber of Seville, Les Troyens, Don Carlo, Die Meistersinger, and Der Rosenkavalier. He also considers two Schubert song cycles. Robinson's thesis is that composers' attitudes toward society, philosophy, and politics have influenced the musical/dramatic structure of many operas

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Robinson reads the memoirs of fourteen French, British, and American gay authors - including Jean Genet, Quentin Crisp, and Martin Duberman - through the prism of sexual identity: How did these men understand their homosexuality? Did they embrace or reject it? How did they express their often conflicted desires, in words ranging from the defiant and brutally frank to the ambiguous and abstract? Robinson shows how all these authors struggled to cope with their sexuality and to reconcile it with prevailing conceptions of masculinity; he considers, through their writings, the choices each man made to accommodate himself to society's homophobia or live in protest against his oppression. And Robinson also discovers national patterns among them as he explores the English obsession with social class and the French association of homosexual attraction with geographical or racial difference."--Jacket

Queer wars : the new gay right and its critics by Paul A Robinson( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the 1969 rebellion at Stonewall to recent battles over same-sex marriage, Gay Liberation in the United States has always been closely associated with the political left. But in recent years, Gay Liberation has taken a dramatic turn toward the right. And gaycons, as they were once archly referred to in the Nation, have taken politics and the media by storm." "Queer Wars limns this new gay right, offering the first extended consideration of gay conservatism and the trenchant critics who espouse its positions. Here celebrated historian of gay culture Paul Robinson draws particular attention to three features at this new political movement. First, he explores how gay conservatives have rejected the idea that commitment to gay freedom should involve equal dedication to the causes of other marginalized people, be they racial minorities, women, or the poor. Second, Robinson demonstrates why gay conservatives embrace more traditional gender ideals - why they are hostile to effeminacy among men and mannishness among women. Finally, exploring the support for sexual restraint among gay conservatives, Robinson dissects their condemnation of promiscuity and their assault on behavior they deem dissolute."--Jacket
