Gender Play in Mark Twain: Cross-Dressing and Transgression
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungHuckleberry Finn dressing as a girl is a famously comic scene in Mark Twain's novel but hardly out of character - for the author, that is. This book explores Mark Twain's use of cross-dressing across his career by exposing the substantial cast of characters who masqueraded as members of the opposite sex or who otherwise defied gender expectations.
