Annotation

Employs economic and gendered lenses in her examination of the sexual rhetoric found in the authors’ correspondence. Churchwell reveals a competitive discourse regarding the relationship of masculinity to commercial success and artistic integrity, asserting the rival authors measured their achievements against each other through cultural, artistic, and economic definitions of value. Reads the “matter of measurements” episode in A Moveable Feast within the context of the authors’ competitive relationship.
