For this week’s post, I’d like you to think about how romance narratives “work,” broadly speaking. What makes them so powerful? Why are they so much more powerful to women? Do men like romance narratives? How does actual sex figure into the equation?
The article for Wednesday offers a few suggestions, and you can pick up on those and add your own thoughts…but you can also suggest other interpretations. You should invoke Twilight at some point.
For this week, I’d like you to place your “post” in the thread of this post. In other words, don’t make your own post — just comment on this one. This “primary comment” should be about 200 words. Your secondary comment should comment on someone else’s thoughts — and make sure to hit “reply” to the specific comment, which will allow your comment to appear directly below.
PRIMARY COMMENT DUE: MIDNIGHT ON TUESDAY
SECONDARY COMMENT DUE: BEFORE CLASS ON WEDNESDAY
