Annotation

Focuses on the temporal dimension, connecting sexuality, race, and primitivism. Rohy relies on queer and psychoanalytic theories as she explores both Catherine’s fantasies and David’s story, paying specific attention to the bond of oedipal fathers and sons and men’s relationships with one another. Rohy concludes, “In The Garden of Eden, which turns back in time to remedy time’s backward turn, we encounter the queer substrate beneath the developmental narrative of heteronormative masculinity.”
