Lovers of Human Flesh: Homosexuality and Cannibalism in Melville's Novels Caleb, : "My questions about the reporting on Dahmer, in turn, threw new light on Melville's representation of male-male relationships. In nearly every one of Melville's novels, cannibalism and homosexuality seemed to be tangled up with each other. New questions came to mind: Why do homosexuality and cannibalism seem parallel to the American mind? How does this parallelism affect the understanding of each category, individually?
