I thought it would be useful to draw attention to some excellent chapters about film and melodrama by two of the field’s leading writers on the subject.
Christine Gledhill’s “Rethinking Genre” in Linda Williams and Christine Gledhill, eds, Reinventing Film Studies. Bloomsbury USA Academic, 2000: 42-88.
Linda Williams’ “Melodrama Revised” in Nick Browne, ed, Refiguring American Film Genres: History and Theory, University of California Pr, 1998: 42-88.

I’m sure you’ll find it interesting to (re)read them. As always, do log in to comment or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
