Author: Karen Volland Waters
Publisher: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated
Category: Literary Criticism
The Perfect Gentleman sees the construct of the gentleman in the last third of the nineteenth century as a key to understanding the dynamics of patriarchy and the instability of gender roles. Through close readings of fiction by men, the author critiques the idea of the gentleman as a model for masculine control and examines the benefits, costs, and systems for maintaining control as they surface in the literature.
