Halfverborgen visioenen van je liefde: homo-erotiek bij Kavafis

Author

Abstract
In this article the homoerotic theme in Cavafy’s poetry is examined from two perspectives. On the one hand, the poems are read autobiographically: their compositional history is clarified through links with Cavafy’s own life and experiences as well as by tracing Cavafy’s psychological evolution in the poems, using the coming-out model of Crass. On the other hand the literary role of this theme is analysed. For this we will focus on its relation with both the function of memory in Cavafy’s poetry and with the poetic creation of a mythical Alexandria. The changes of the meaning of several literary motives will also lay bare important semantic and poetic developments in Cavafy’s oeuvre.
