Book Description In Eyes of Love , Stephen Kern offers a bold reinterpretation of women in art and literature. He shows that the frequent recurrence of the "Proposal Composition" in English and French nineteenth-century paintings and novels challenges assumptions about "the gaze"_that women are merely passive erotic objects, while men are active erotic subjects. The eyes of women express a more varied range of thoughts than those of men, and convey more profound emotions.
