Adventure, Mystery and Romance: Formula Stories as Art and Popular Culture - used book

ISBN: 0226098664

ID: 5511470

In this first general theory for the analysis of popular literary formulas, John G. Cawelti reveals the artistry that underlies the best in formulaic literature. Cawelti discusses such seemingly diverse works as Mario Puzo's The Godfather, Dorothy Sayers's The Nine Tailors, and Owen Wister's The Virginian in the light of his hypotheses about the cultural function of formula literature. He describes the most important artistic characteristics of popular formula stories and the differences between this literature and that commonly labeled "high" or "serious" literature. He also defines the archetypal patterns of adventure, mystery, romance, melodrama, and fantasy, and offers a tentative account of their basis in human psychology. creative writing and composition,criticism and theory,education and reference,fiction,gothic and romantic,history and criticism,humanities,literature,literature and fiction,movements and periods Humanities, University of Chicago Press
