I do not mean to downplay the seriousness of its critique or the weight of the revelations contained within it. Stockton has done an admirable job of elaborating upon the role--symbolic, sexual, and otherwise--of the anus and its outcomes in literary texts by Jonson, Shakespeare, Nashe, Chaucer, and others.
The book successfully performs the difficult feat of engaging with both historicism and psychoanalytic theory, shifting ideas about both, even as it juxtaposes early modern texts against medieval and postmodern ones. In the process, it sets out a deeply smart, immensely readable addition to the growing corpus of early modern queer studies and to studies of comedy more generally.
All that said, as an expression of its own observations, it is also quite funny. Before I delve into the more weighty bits of this review, I think it is only fair to begin, as Stockton does, with his cover's floral, typeset version of a Kurt Vonnegut asterisk joke.
