Críticas:

"John M. Clum's The Drama of Marriage: Gay Playwrights/Straight Unions from Oscar Wilde to the Present casts a look at important interconnected issues revolving around the concept of marriage. Unique is the vantage point of playwrights whose own sexual orientation was or is partly or entirely towards men. This not only legitimates but necessitates the strong biographical approach Clum has chosen. The volume is immensely readable, garners important results by way of an incredibly dense tour de force, and animates the reader to delve deeper not only into the works but also the life stories of the playwrights discussed. Primary text and author are always the focus and are honoured in this way...John M. Clum's publications are seminal works in their field, and this latest volume is a gem." - Theater Forschung
 
"Far-reaching in its historical and dramaturgical scope, and politicizing a previously apolitical aspect of Anglo-American theatre history, Clum's monograph is a helpful intervention into several current discourses. And, given the current divisive debate about same-sex marriage, a debate that is as divided amongst queer citizens as it is anywhere else, Clum's summation that marriage  - gay or straight  - is always already an 'unattainable ideal' that mere mortals forever fail in, yet find themselves compelled to 'continually strive for,' is intellectually and political brave." -  Performing Ethos

'This book offers an appealing companion to Clum's celebrated Acting Gay (1992) and continues to narrate the history of gay theatre. It also will be of interest to those working on gender and the role of women in the twentieth-century theatre.'  - Theatre Journal

Reseña del editor:

In drama of the past century and a half, marriage has been presented as an ideal, an impossibility, and the measure of the morality and limitations of the parties involved. Do marriages fail because couples fail or because marriage itself is impossible? Is true understanding between two people possible? Is monogamy unrealistic? Queering Marriage is a study of performances of marriage in modern and contemporary British and American drama. Paradoxically, at a time when theatre was both popular entertainment and high culture, many of the most commercially and artistically successful plays about marriage were written by homosexual men (some of whom had a very different understanding of the word "gay"). Many of these playwrights tried in their private lives to negotiate some sort of same-sex partnership in a period when legal sanctions against homosexuality were Draconian. Beginning with Oscar Wilde and focusing on some of the most successful British and American playwrights of the past century, the writers have become as much a part of gay history as theatre history: Somerset Maugham, Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, and Emlyn Williams in England; Clyde Fitch, George Kelly, Tennessee Williams, William Inge, and Edward Albee in the United States. The relationship between the ways these men tried to find ways to live and love outside the law and the plays they wrote about heterosexual marriage continues to impact contemporary gay playwrights and the depiction of marriage.
