Summary Book Review A Natural History of the Romance Novel :

Download or read book A Natural History of the Romance Novel written by Pamela Regis and published by University of Pennsylvania Press. This book was released on 2013-08-31 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The romance novel has the strange distinction of being the most popular but least respected of literary genres. While it remains consistently dominant in bookstores and on best-seller lists, it is also widely dismissed by the critical community. Scholars have alleged that romance novels help create subservient readers, who are largely women, by confining heroines to stories that ignore issues other than love and marriage. Pamela Regis argues that such critical studies fail to take into consideration the personal choice of readers, offer any true definition of the romance novel, or discuss the nature and scope of the genre. Presenting the counterclaim that the romance novel does not enslave women but, on the contrary, is about celebrating freedom and joy, Regis offers a definition that provides critics with an expanded vocabulary for discussing a genre that is both classic and contemporary, sexy and entertaining. Taking the stance that the popular romance novel is a work of literature with a brilliant pedigree, Regis asserts that it is also a very old, stable form. She traces the literary history of the romance novel from canonical works such as Richardson's Pamela through Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Brontë's Jane Eyre, and E. M. Hull's The Sheik, and then turns to more contemporary works such as the novels of Georgette Heyer, Mary Stewart, Janet Dailey, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Nora Roberts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Our Twentieth-Century Romance" is a captivating memoir of the life of Stephen Riordan. Riordan is an Everyman of America, whose story could be told by many in the United States in the 20th century. Born and raised in a small Irish Catholic town in rural Iowa, his family's wealth destroyed by the Great Depression, Stephen hitchhikes across America into a new life. His journey takes him to Los Angeles, where he meets Gertrude Neubauer, a young widow who also left Iowa in search of opportunities and adventure. Their brief courtship results in a marriage lasting 64 years. From World War II, when he was a Warrant Officer in the U.S. Navy submarine service and she was a housekeeper in a wealthy home in San Diego, through the turbulent 60's and into their retirement years, these memoirs are filled with insight into the life of the century itself. Through his work as a corporate executive, the excitement of world travel, and his bout with cancer, Riordan is a man of faith and commitment to Catholicism. His spirituality imbues this book with insights into not only the events of his time, but also the search for meaning that makes life worth living.

Summary Book Review Teaching Late-Twentieth-Century Mexicana and Chicana Writers :

Download or read book Teaching Late-Twentieth-Century Mexicana and Chicana Writers written by Elizabeth Coonrod Martínez and published by Modern Language Association. This book was released on 2020-12-15 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mexicana and Chicana authors from the late 1970s to the turn of the century helped overturn the patriarchal literary culture and mores of their time. This landmark volume acquaints readers with the provocative, at times defiant, yet subtle discourses of this important generation of writers and explains the influences and historical contexts that shaped their work. Until now, little criticism has been published about these important works. Addressing this oversight, Teaching Late-Twentieth-Century Mexicana and Chicana Writers starts with essays on Mexicana and Chicana authors. It then features essays on specific teaching strategies suitable for literature surveys and courses in cultural studies, Latino studies, interdisciplinary and comparative studies, humanities, and general education that aim to explore the intersectionalities represented in these works. Experienced teachers offer guidance on using these works to introduce students to border studies, transnational studies, sexuality studies, disability studies, contemporary Mexican history and Latino history in the United States, the history of social movements, and concepts of race and gender.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The history play is an extremely popular genre among English playwrights of this century, yet very little research has been done in the field. In particular, the sheer size and complexity of the subject appears to have prevented critics from attempting to arrive at a clear definition of the genre. This book examines the term 'history play' afresh, seeking to define more precisely the scope and the limits of the genre in relation to twentieth-century ideas of and attitudes to history.
