Reading the Romance: Women, Patriarchy, and Popular Literature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1984, Reading The Romance challenges popular (and often demeaning) myths about why romantic fiction, one of publishing's most lucrative categories, captivates millions of women readers. In a new introduction, Janice Radway places the book within the context of current scholarship and offers both an explanation and critique of the study's limitations.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [241]-267) and index.
