Out of Bounds: Male Writers and Gender(ed) Criticism

Front Cover
Laura P. Claridge, Elizabeth Langland
University of Massachusetts Press, 1990 - Literary Criticism - 344 pages
Until recently, masculinity and its impact on literary production and reception has received scant attention in the field of literary criticism. Although critics certainly have been interested in examining gender, they have tended to be far more concerned with the feminine side of the equation than with the masculine. This book is an attempt to redress that imbalance.
