Starting with theoretical premises drawn from philosophy, anthropology, and sociology, this work examines Thom Gunns entire poetic career. In Gunns early poetry, the author argues, the predominant theme is the desire for freedom from the painful prison of the intellect and from the masks that the individual feels compelled to wear even in his sexual relationships.In Gunns later poetry, the author notes a gradual opening to human relationships and to Nature, which is also Gunns vindication and reevaluation of his own nature and the liberation of his long repressed and hidden homosexuality.
