BeschreibungThis work argues that a crisis in the meaning and experience of marriage emerged when it lost its institutional function of controlling the distribution of property, and instead came to be seen as a locus for feelings of desire, togetherness, and loss.
Pressestimmen"An extremely valuable contribution to the history of that supposedly timeless ideal, the intimate relationship." --, author of The Wedding Complex - Elizabeth Freeman, author of The Wedding Complex "A wide-ranging and beautifully dialectical analysis of the modern discourses on love and intimacy. David Shumway overturns some of the usual assumptions about romantic love and, in the process makes original, often surprising observations about literature, movies, pop music, self-help books, and a variety of other texts. Modern Love is a pleasure to read, and it contributes significantly to our understanding of modernity." --James Naremore, Indiana University "Fascinating and timely." --Intams Review "An extremely valuable contribution to the history of that supposedly timeless ideal, the intimate relationship." --Elizabeth Freeman, author of The Wedding Complex "A cultural study of love and marriage in fiction and film rather than a history of recent marriage, Modern Love illuminates the complexities of an important recent development in American marital ideals." --The Journal of American History
