Looking at historical romance in both its popular and literary manifestations, Fletcher (English, journalism, and European languages, U. of Tasmania, Australia) examines the genre as a complex and ongoing discussion about gender and sexual norms, and presents a theoretical model for analyzing this discussion. Romance is a fictional mode that depends on the force and familiarity of the speech act "I love you," she contends, and that phrase is the key to the genre's mutual dependence on and disavowal of its historicity.
