This unpublished material, written between 1944 and 1989, traces a remarkable re-evaluation in his thinking over the course of time.

As a young scholar, Frye insisted that romance was an expression of cultural decadence- however, in his later years, he thought of it as the structural core of all fiction. The unpublished material Michael Dolzani has gathered for Northrop Fryes Notebooks on Romance shows how the pattern and conventions of romance inform the writing of history, anthropology, psychology, philosophy, and theology. While Frye is best known for his writing on myth and biblical scholarship, he himself eventually conceived of romance as the true and equal contrary to myth and scripture, a secular scripture whose message is de te fabula, this story is about you.

Given the current popular revival of romance in fiction and film, the appearance of Fryes unpublished work on romance is of profound importance.
