Samenvatting

Romance is a varied and fluid literary genre, notoriously difficult to define. This groundbreaking companion surveys the many permutations of romance throughout the ages. It considers the literary and historical development of the romance genre from its classical origins to the present day. It incorporates discussion of the changing readership of romance and of romance's special relation to women readers. It comprises 30 essays written by leading authorities on different periods and sub-genres. It challenges the idea that the appeal of romance is exclusively escapist. It draws on a wide range of specific and influential literary examples.

Recensie(s)

Acknowledging the difficulty of defining romance, Saunders and the contributors collectively produce a volume that offers a more comprehensive survey of the literature including its historical, national, and generic varieties than have previous standard works on the subject Some of the essays e.g., Helen Cooper s Malory and the Early Prose Romances and Richard Cronin s Victorian Romance: Medievalism are exemplary in the quality of their writing, scholarship, and critical perception Highly recommended. Choice ... It would be worth acquiring for an academic humanities collection and, from my own experience, would be particulary useful for English literature students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
