Reading the Romance: Women, Patriarchy, and Popular Literature

by

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.

Description:

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