In love with a handsome sailor : the emergence of gay identity and the novels of Pierre Loti by Richard M Berrong( )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Berrong presents a gay reading of the novels and novellas of Julien Viaud, chronologically tracing his development of a distinct homosexual identity and the strategies that he employed to discuss it in a way that would not be obvious to the general public. In so doing, Berrong asserts that Viaud's development of a homosexual identity undermined and realigned dominant constructions of masculinity, presented the need for gay community, and elaborated the role of literature for gay men. The first book-length gay reading of Viaud's corpus, this work will make an important contribution not only to the study of Viaud, but also to the study of gay and lesbian history, culture, and literature."--BOOK JACKET
Putting Monet and Rembrandt into words : Pierre Loti's recreation and theorization of Claude Monet's impressionism and Rembrandt's landscapes in literature by Richard M Berrong( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining certain of Loti's important novels, this study shows how he managed to reproduce with words what Monet was doing in oils. It also shows how the author came to theorize about the effects of Impressionism on the reader-viewer. Finally, it demonstrates how and why, in one of his last novels, Loti undertook to reproduce the style of one of the painters most admired by Monet: Rembrandt van Rijn, whom the nineteenth-century French rediscovered in part because they could present his sketchy biography as a demonstration of many of the things liberal art historians and painters believed the ideal artist should be."--Publisher's Web site
