DESCRIPTION

Often derided as an inferior form of literature, 'romance' as a literary mode or genre defies satisfactory definition, dividing critics, scholars and readers alike. This useful guidebook traces the myriad transformations of 'romance' throughout literary history and claims that its elusive and complex nature serves as a touchstone for larger questions of literary and cultural theory, such as:
*How does the history of 'romance' as a category force us to rethink the historicisation of literary genres?
*What definitions can we provide for our own time to help us recognise and analyse new forms of 'romance'?
*To what extent is the resistance to romance a resistance to the imaginative force of literature?
The case for 'romance' as a concept is presented clearly and imaginatively, arguing that its usefulness to contemporary critics can be maintained if it is regarded as a literary strategy rather than a fixed genre. In encouraging the reader to consider the fluidity of literature, Romance will be of equal value to all students of historical and comparative literatures and of modern literary forms.
