Previous surveys of the gay theatrical repertoire have concentrated on plays produced on Broadway or in London's West End. This comprehensive guide goes well beyond these earlier studies by introducing productions from Off Broadway, from regional theaters in the U.S. and U.K., and from Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Also included are Puerto Rican, Indian and Filipino plays written in English, as well as translations from other languages. Well over half of the works discussed here appear for the first time in such a study. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'}

Poetry. LGBT Studies. "Poetry is an enrapturing process that intensifies the discovery of experience and only what arises out of this urgency produces utterance that is distinctive and honest. Here in these sinewy acts shine the mobilities of praise, the delight in the body's beauty and its surprises, the wonder of beholding energy and love. The poems are glimpses of sensual epiphanies, lightning flashes on the dramatic heart of event, memories from the crux of dream. Here are secrets that lie within the adventures of desire. Pursue them, and participate in the pleasure."—James Broughton "Jeffery Beam's THE NEW BEAUTIFUL TENDONS proves what many of us have known for some time: he is one of our most important and valuable poets. No matter what he touches on, it is always observed with Beam's precise and careful eye in spare, direct language that's as fresh as a sunrise and the sweet air of morning. Read these poems and brighten your day. I guarantee it."—Michael Rumaker "All children should hear you, the universe glistening. The spirit of poetry and nature and Eros are carried forth into and for the future. You are one of the poets I feel closest to—kindred spirit in love with the natural world and kindred spirit of awe and affection to our own kind. Feather to feather, wing to wing."—Antler "These juicy poems, at the intersection of spirituality and sexuality, leave me breathless with their erotic thrust."—Edward Field

In The Broken Flower poet Jeffery Beam journeys beyond merely human stories into the radiant IS - the I AM hidden in earthly shadows and gleaming foliage and skies. Poems written over several decades coalesce "not just to say / this or / that / But ... to say / what is between." In their "words' melancholic / swarm" Beam finds human feeling in Nature's broad manifest, a world ripe with anniversaries - of the bobwhite, the copperhead, owls, tree frogs, deer, apples and persimmons, mountain fogs and river rhythms, Monet, Cathar spirits, Paracelsus, Lazarus, and falling stones - affirming that "there is a reason for being here / ... however / it insinuates itself into you." The Broken Flower, Emersonian in its scope and wisdom, seeks not the perfect, but the infinite in the quotidian, the "unrestrainable / heart" within "the last place we would think /to look // ... in the discarded shattered world," where the stem-less flower proves to be "the most perfect flower" because it is broken. These poems fulfill William Carlos Williams' maxim of writing for "the pursuit of beauty, and the husk that remains." The Broken Flower is a work, in which the awkward, the broken, and the common welcome the reader with verity, wholeness, and grace.
