From the Publisher

Our fascination with romance is seemingly indestructible. Until now, however, romance has been badly neglected as a subject for serious academic study. This original collection aims to redress this imbalance by focusing on the changing nature, or "rescripting" of romance in film & fiction. This is the first volume to fully consider the cultural representation of romance in the wake of postmodernism & postcolonialism & offers clear evidence of romance as a "category under stress." The contemporary nature of the texts discussed - such as Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction & Hotel du Lac - places it at the center of many current debates concerning identity, gender, sexuality & desire. Viewing romance in the context of queer theory & AIDS, & challenging many popular psychoanalytic concepts such as abjection, the collection also makes a significant contribution to feminist & gay/lesbian discussions on the politics of romantic love.
