Critical Essays to Mark the Centenary of the Writer's Birth

Price suddenly appears on the scene, informing them that they will be prosecuted and imprisoned for theft. The policeman represents the repressive society of surveillance in which homosexual people lived before the passing of the Sexual Offences Act of He reveals the cracks in a heteronormative, English establishment which treats him as a Welsh minstrel through his savage, coded art of camouflage.
