Working Title: Mills And Boon Prose: From YKTTW
Prfnoff: Launched without discussion. The description is poor, and the examples lack detail. Needs work.
: Can someone help please? I'm not too familiar with the style.
: I'll do what I can; the description is a bit vague, and I'm not sure if it's supposed refer specifically to bad erotic writing, or more generally to the kind of Purple Prose
associated with romances.
: The latter. Good work, thanks.
: does any kind of rather dense and metaphor-laden erotic prose qualify, or just the bosom-heaving "velvet-sheathed steel that proclaimed him male" stuff?
: I'd go with the broader interpretation, personally.
