The essays reflect a range of perspectives, including influence, intertextuality, and gender studies (representation, feminism, masculinity), and focus on topics as diverse as urban settings, prostitution, male fights, and fat and thin characters.

Millington, Maria Rosa Olivera-Williams, Hilary Owen, Gustavo San Roman, Donald L. Shaw, Philip Swanson, and Peter Turton.]
