Book Description HTML

At the end of the nineteenth century some writers feared that sexuality, gender and male roles were not quite what they should be and consequently set about producing new forms. The masculine novel of action and the romance genre which, if we do not take their texts at face value, appear to confirm and consolidate their male bondings. At the Savile club in Piccadilly, Haggard and Lang produced a co-authored work which could be taken to engage in misogyny. They wrote a novel entitled The World's Desire in the form of a Hellenic, lyrical fable which explores the fictive world of masculinity. But ends in misogyny and seems to hark back to Carlyle through Scott, Tennyson, Mallory's Morte d' Arthur, and The Odyssey.
