This study examines women's popular romance fiction's role in constructing gender and revealing power structures. The textual analysis incorporates cultural studies and women's studies by focusing on gender constructs of power through the medium of popular romance fiction and its many subgenres. By using the framework of dominance and submission with psychological and performative theories concerning gender roles, in the first section, this work reveals the power structures within popular romance fiction that reinforce, reinvent, and reshape gender ideologies. The second section of my dissertation addresses historical romance fiction where these same hegemonic and power structures are evident, yet encoded within symbolic and mythical representations of gender and region. The third section includes an ethnographic study of romance writers, both published and unpublished, and their motives and intentions as reflected through their fiction's social, political, religious, and economic constructs.
