Sebald’s Bachelors: Queer Resistance and the Unconforming Life
Hannah O'Connor: 'Why does the spectre of queer desire haunt the works of W.G. Sebald? The bachelor, and especially the alternative or queer masculinities associated with him, is central to the Sebaldian canon, as Helen’s Finch asserts in her original study Sebald’s Bachelor’s: Queer Resistance and the Unconforming Life. Her analysis examines the recurrent bachelor figures that populate his narratives, as well as their potential for resistance and refusal to conform to the normative social order.'
