The Queer Afterlife of Vaslav Nijinsky is three books in one: an impressionistic account of the dancer’s homoerotic career, an analysis of his gay male reception, and an exploration of the limitations of that analysis. The impressionistic account focuses on significant gestures that Nijinsky made in key roles, including the Golden Slave, the Specter of the Rose, Narcissus, Petrouchka, and the Faun. The analysis of his gay reception, based on the semiotics of Roland Barthes, is deconstructive, and the exploration of the limitations of such an analysis moves beyond Barthesian semiotics and, in doing so, beyond the author’s work in his previous books.
