On Books for Boys

On Books for Boys A BOYS' book, I suppose, is a book without a heroine that is, without a heroine in what too often is the filmmeaning. Women and girls may enter, perhaps should enter, but there ought to be no nonsense and no love interest. They are to have all rights as individuals, yet only a restricted right as females. They are to come and go as characters, yet if their sex makes them attractive, it should be such attraction as one feels for a chest of gold doubloons. Elusiveness is permissible if it is like the elusiveness of buried treasure desire, except as one desires treasurewhich is something to be found rather than fingeredis disallowed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A BOYS' book, I suppose, is a book without a heroine that is, without a heroine in what too often is the filmmeaning. Women and girls may enter, perhaps should enter, but there ought to be no nonsense and no love interest. They are to have all rights as individuals, yet only a restricted right as females. They are to come and go as characters, yet if their sex makes them attractive, it should be such attraction as one feels for a chest of gold doubloons. Elusiveness is permissible if it is like the elusiveness of buried treasure desire, except as one desires treasurewhich is something to be found rather than fingeredis disallowed.
