The Woman's Film of the 1940s: Gender, Narrative, and History
Find in the Library
This book explores the relationship among gender, desire, and narrative in 1940s "woman’s films" as they navigate the terrain between public history and private experience. The woman’s film and other form of cinematic melodrama have often been understood as positioning themselves outside history; this book challenges and modifies that understanding, contextualizing the films it considers against the backdrop of World War II.
