Popular Fiction: Mystery, Romance and Fantasy


Description

Popular Fiction offers an opportunity to extend critical study of literature to the mass of texts customarily denied academic approval. A key element is the reader’s pleasure. Does pleasure make a difference in what is, admittedly, a critical study of several varieties of modern popular fiction, especially children’s literature, romance and crime fiction (both in print and on television)? Reading of texts will be supported by discussion of a range of theoretical issues.
