What a Man's Gotta Do: The Masculine Myth in Popular Culture

封面
Psychology Press, 1992 - 184 頁
La 4e de couverture indique : "Although images of women in the mass media have been widely discussed ln recent years, there is no equivalent analysis of men. Once again masculinity seems to have succeeded in passing itself off as universal and invisible. In this book, Antony Easthope argues that, far from being universal, the main tradition of masculinity in the West is both specific and peculiar. What is masculinity? Drawing up psychoanalysis and an understanding of ideology, Easthope shows how the masculine myth forces men to try to be masculine and only masculine, denying their feminine side. In an original contribution to the understanding of gender he analyzes masculinity as it is represented in a wide range of mass media--films, television, newspapers, pop music, and pulp novels. Why are two men in a John Wayne western more concerned with each other than with the women in their lives? Is aggressive male banter a sign that men hate or love each other? Why does a jealous man always have to see his rival? Written in lively, witty, and accessible style, this book is certain to become controversial but essential reading for a wide range of courses in popular culture, mass media, and cultural studies, as well as those in film study, literature, and sociology.
