This book shows how Sodom and its practice against nature dominate the last phase of Pier Paolo Pasolini's poetics. The screenplay Saint Paul, the scenario Porn-Theo-Colossal, the novel Petrolio, and the film Salò are carefully examined in the light of their multiple sources. The four works analyzed here are strictly connected to one another and obsessively revolve around the problem of sodomy and the sodomitical subject. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Pier Paolo Pasolini, poetics, Saint Paul, Porn-Theo-Colossal, Petrolio, Salò, Sodom, sodomy
