"In 1995 the German critic Olaf Kühl resuscitated the question of the author’s suppressed homosexual desire. Avoiding the kind of reductive biographical diagnosis that marred Sandauer’s analysis, Kühl condemns the ‘“entkörperlichende” und  “desexualisierende” Allegorese’ that characterized most discussions of Gombrowicz’s eroticism since the 1960s. He reverses the trend of reading the concrete and physical in Gombrowicz’s work as a signifier for the abstract and metaphysical, and proposes to view Form as a metaphor for the body, and not the body as a metaphor for Form. Kühl’s work represents a milestone in Gombrowicz scholarship in that it takes his eroticism seriously without either reducing it to sensational trivia or subjugating it to his own programmatic writings. Following Kühl other critics have tackled Gombrowicz’s formal and stylistic constructions as manifestations of ‘unspeakable’ desire."
