In his 2003 collection of essays Deep Gossip, Henry Abelove suggests that queer studies and American studies, at a fundamental level, have always grappled with the same questions and concepts: an interest in the history of democratic culture, an avowal of homosexual desire, an interdisciplinary approach to literature, and the use of literature as a political resource. The eminent foci of nineteenth-century American studies have quite often been the various brands of white, male alienation epitomized by the homosocial and homoerotic literary cultures of Melville, Hawthorne, Whitman, Thoreau, and other exemplary "proto-queer" figures.
