  • Irreverently Unromantic: A Rhetorical Path to Sophistic Poetics in the
           Poetry of Bob Hicok
    • Abstract: <p>By Brian Hendrickson</p> Since the publication of his first chapbook in 1991, Bob Hicok’s poetry has grown all the more sophisticatedly irreverent. That tendency toward irreverence might be why Hicok’s work has yet to garner the serious critical attention it deserves (although Hicok has received some very serious attention viz a Guggenheim Fellowship, two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, the Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Poetry Prize from the Library of Congress, the Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, the Jerome J. Shestack Prize, and four Pushcart Prizes—and he was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award), but irreverence might just be what the situation of contemporary American poetry demands.The value of Hicok’s ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Revenge and the Family Romance in Tarantino’s Kill Bill
    • Abstract: <p>By Lesel Dawson</p> Critics such as Steve Chibnall, Yvonne Griggs, and Stevie Simkin have demonstrated the ways in which early modern revenge tragedies have been taken up and reconfigured in contemporary cinema, in particular within the gangster film. Early modern revenge tragedy and gangster films frequently focus on a socially isolated figure with whom the audience feels an uneasy sympathy, and both are concerned with family reputation and masculine codes of honour. Both genres also revel in “male-dominated violence and excessive body counts,” depicting a bleak and exploitative social world in which authority figures are either absent or corrupt (Griggs 121). And in both the central protagonist dies as the consequence of his ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Global Subjects of Poetry: Power and Discourse in Poetry
    • Abstract: <p>By Xingbo Li</p> To be truthful, i.e. to use customary metaphors.In his 2001 American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) presidential address, Jonathan Culler proposes that studying poetry should involve comparing it not only with drama and narrative, but also with other poems (vii-xvii).1 He claims that comparing or theorizing about poetry requires thinking about traditions other than one’s own, however inadequate one’s linguistic capacities. This essay follows this impetus in comparing wine poems from the Tang tradition (China, CE 618-907) with those from a landmark poet of the European traditions, Charles Baudelaire.Conventionally, such poetry ranks within national corpuses of literary masterpieces, tightly wedded to ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Echoing Romance: James Cameron’s Avatar as Ecoromance
    • Abstract: <p>By Marsha S. Collins</p> The cinema has embraced romance even as critical respect continues to elude this popular and ancient form of fiction. George Lucas’s Star Wars trilogies (1977-83; 1999-2005), Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones adventure series (1981-2008), the film versions of the Harry Potter books (2001-11), and Peter Jackson’s motion pictures of the beloved J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings classics (2001-03) are just a few of the successful movie romances that now constitute part of the global collective imaginary. At present another movie romance, James Cameron’s Avatar, sits atop the list of the best-selling films of all time, worldwide (“All-Time”). These screen blockbusters attest to the enduring, universal appeal of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Fatal Attractions: “Snuff Fiction” and the Homicidal Romance
    • Abstract: <p>By Deborah Wills</p> We spring from “generations of murderers,” claims Freud, with “the lust for killing in their blood” (297). It is perhaps no accident that Freud speaks here of murder in terms of “lust” (and famously, elsewhere, of lust in terms of murder): desire and violence often share a representational lexicon, borrowing from a register of urgency that reaches out of appetite toward satiation. This satiation, however, may bring in its very gratification what William Ian Miller calls the “sickness of surfeit” (110). Claudius’s suggestively phallic reference to love’s “wick” figures a passion that destroys itself through its own intemperance: in depicting a flame snuffing itself in the liquid generated by its own heat ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • My Metatextual Romance: Thinking With (and About) Jaane Tu Ya Janne Na
    • Abstract: <p>By Eric Murphy Selinger</p> Sumita Chakravaty closes her essay “Teaching Indian Cinema” with a challenge: “A Bollywood film is something to think with,” she writes, “even more than something to think about” (108, emph. Chakravaty’s). In this essay, I take up that challenge, thinking both about and with the Indian romantic comedy Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (Know it or Not). The film, we might say, is both thought-provoking and thoughtful, built around sophisticated insights into the imaginative structures of romantic love, the sexual politics of romantic comedy, and the specifically intellectual appeal of popular romance media: crucial topics in the emerging interdisciplinary field of popular romance studies.The idea that popular romance culture ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “Going Native”: Aca-Fandom and Deep Participant Observation
           in Popular Romance Studies
    • Abstract: <p>By Catherine M. Roach</p> Here is a moment. I am in Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s one really good seafood restaurant—fish trucked in daily from the Gulf of Mexico—having lunch with Eloisa James/Mary Bly. She is the guest of the University of Alabama; we invited her down in her capacity as Dr. Mary Bly, Shakespeare and Renaissance scholar at Fordham University, but also in her capacity as Eloisa James, New York Times best-selling author of historical romance novels. She delivered a campus-wide talk in the English department, visited my gender studies seminar, and spoke with my students about romance fiction. Mary is a respected academic, with scholarly publications and degrees from Harvard, Oxford, and Yale. Eloisa is a high-level, successful ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Antonin Artaud and Freud’s “Family Romance”: The
           Transgressive Sublime
    • Abstract: <p>By Lynn Hughey Engelbert</p> The Freudian disorder that underlies the theory of “Family Romances” is sometimes recuperated by a Romantic system of aesthetics in the work of individuals such as Antonin Artaud, where the trauma of existence becomes the fodder for avant-garde brilliance, and not merely a “correction of actual life,” as Freud suggested (IX: 238). Artaud’s radical reconstruction of theatre and literature represents an alternative form of sublimity, one where creation and destruction moved hand-in-hand to symbolize the comingling of the Romantic quest with the shattered perspectives of phantasy. In Freud’s stereotypical romance, the child/adult’s “parents are replaced by others of better birth” and this allows them freedom from ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne McCance</p> The Call for Papers that preceded, and invited submissions to, this special issue welcomed essays engaging the rich etymology and history of the word “romance,” a word that the Oxford English Dictionary requires three full pages to address. Mosaic sought submissions on a wide range of potential topics, including the figure of the “romantic,” the roman, romantic fiction, Romanticism, “the Romantics,” and the state of the love story in literature and film. Releasing such a Call is one of the great privileges of an editor, or so I have found, never yet having been disappointed, or left unsurprised, by the number and diversity of responses each Call receives. The current special issue attests to this kind of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “That Darker, Though Truer Aspect of Things”:
           Melville’s Failed Romances
    • Abstract: <p>By Zachary Lamm</p> In one of the later chapters of Herman Melville’s romance Pierre, or The Ambiguities, the main plot, so much as there is one, is interrupted—as it often is—by a rambling pontification from the comedic yet existentialist Charlie Millthorpe, a childhood friend of Pierre’s, whom he reencounters after taking up residence at the church cum artists’ and intellectuals’ colony of the Apostles; after reminding himself that Pierre is living as a married man (he is in fact only feigning marriage to his newly-discovered alleged half-sister, Isabel), Charlie offers the following insights:Well, I suppose it [marriage] is wise after all. It settles, centralizes, and confirms a man, I have heard.—No, I didn’t; it is a random ... <a href="">Read More</a>
