The Economics of Fantasy: Rape in Twentieth-century Literature

Portada
Ohio State University Press, 2006 - 235 páginas
The author examines the evolution of the rape narrative in twentieth-century literature: What accounts for the persistence of the old story of male power and violence, and female passivity and penetrability? How has the story changed over the course of the twentieth century? She investigates the manner in which the violation of the female body serves as a metaphor for a synthesis of masculinity and political economy.
