Construction of a Queer Identity in André Aciman's Call Me by Your Name and Neil Bartlett's Skin Lane

Abstract : This study shows how the experience of a first queer love story is a key factor in the construction of one's identity. It explores the hero's obsessive quest for the loved one which results in the creation of a wounded and traumatized self. While the heroes of the novels under study are understanding their true identity, they are confronted with a heteronormative society and overwhelming emotions.
