An interpretation of Jarman's intentions, gleaned from the director's writings and writings about him, is also provided. This work reveals Jarman's importance as a keen student of the limits of historical knowledge, and delineates the role of history in inspiring change or preserving inertia in the present struggle against homophobia."--Jacket."@en ;
