Description

Taking into account romantic comedy's current popularity and the genre's adaptability to changing historical circumstances, as well as its powerful tendency to contain and assimilate social changes, this book explores the complex ways in which recent cultural discourses on gender and sexuality have found their way into the apparently inflexible structure of romantic comedy. Focusing on a wide range of well-known films (including Working Girl, Murphy's Romance, Peggy Sue Got Married, When Harry Met Sally, Green Card) the chapters cover topics relating to formal, historical and ideological questions, including issues of romance, love and female subjectivity.show more
