This book concludes by reviewing concisely the key issues from the later eighteenth to the later nineteenth centuries and setting out the wider implications for the future study not simply of caricature and fashion, but also of the role of visual culture in the construction of the sodomite as the posing precursor to the twentieth-century image of the homosexual.

Keywords:   homosexuality, sodomy, caricature, fashion, performativity, queer
