1 Review
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.
