Looks at men's fantasies and self-images from a wide range of texts to discuss the most recent theories of subjectivity, masculinty and emotion. The author discusses the split between the experience-based claims of the men's movement and the discourse theories of postmodernism. Does this division reveal a continuing refusal of masculine self-awareness? Why does postmodernist theory investigate desire but leave emotion untouched? This book seeks to reformulate the way we think about male subjectivity. Its interdisciplinary approach weaves together material from many different sources, and should be of interest to students of literature, cultural studies, gender studies, and psychoanalysis.
