Brokeback Mountain Study Guides

  • Brokeback Mountain


    Brokeback Mountain is the story of Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar, two young Wyoming natives who connect sexually and emotionally one summer while working on a ranch. The story goes on to chronicle their lives as they conform to the heteronormative culture around them, getting married and fathering children. They reconnect periodically on camping trips, but conflicts inevitably arise from their dalliance and eventually their lives unravel. Jack dies, either in an accident or in a gang beating, and Ennis is left to mourn him.
