Summary
"In Marriage and Violence, Frances E. Dolan reveals the contradiction that lies at the very heart of modern marriage. Our working model of marriage, she contends, is one that we have inherited from early modern England - and is so flawed that its logical consequence is conflict." "Dolan ranges over sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Puritan advice literature, sensational accounts of "true crime," and late twentieth-century Christian marriage manuals and films about battered women who kill their abusers. By contrasting depictions of marriage in the sixteenth, seventeenth, and twentieth centuries, she shows that the early modern apprehension of marriage as an economy of scarcity continues to haunt the present in the form of a conceptual structure that can accommodate only one fully developed person. When two fractious persons assert their conflicting wills, resolution can be achieved only when one spouse absorbs, subordinates, or eliminates the other."--BOOK JACKET
