Omtale: A Companion to Romance
Romance is a varied and fluid literary genre, notoriously difficult to define. This groundbreaking Companion surveys the many permutations of romance throughout the ages. * Considers the literary and historical development of the romance genre from its classical origins to the present day * Incorporates discussion of the changing readership of romance and of romance's special relation to women readers * Comprises 30 essays written by leading authorities on different periods and sub-genres * Challenges the idea that the appeal of romance is exclusively escapist * Draws on a wide range of specific and influential literary examples
