"Champagne's book offers a different perspective on questions of identity and difference through his focus on the queer melodramatic. He links the music (melos) of melodrama to theatrics as expressed through his discussions of theater, lyric opera, film, and painting. While cinema has been a focus of critical writing on gender and sexuality, especially in relation to women, opera and painting have been considered separately and differently. Now, Champagne's book brings these art forms into dialogue about bodies, especially, but not exclusively, masculine bodies. The book, through these exemplary figures and forms from different moments in time, offers a historical perspective on masculinity and melodrama." - Marcia Landy, Distinguished Professor of English and Film Studies, University of Pittsburgh, USA
