Romance is a word of many historical meanings. Starting with the ChivalricRomance, where it meant "work written in the vernacular." From that, it derived the meaning of tales of drama, adventure, and larger than life characters and often magical elements and strange monsters. Hence, writers speak of {{Shakespeare}}'s romances, and PlanetaryRomance, and RuritanianRomance.

To most people, the Romance [[{{Genres}} genre]] is about people falling in love. In literary circles, the term might be used to describe {{speculative fiction}}.

The genre is much more complicated than simply sighs, embraces, and bodice ripping wrapped in a lurid RomanceNovel book jacket. A romance focuses on the interpersonal relationships of characters and how those actions, thoughts, and circumstances drive people apart and bring them back together.

See LoveTropes for many of the tropes typical of the Romance genre.

To most people, the Romance [[{{Genres}} genre]] is about people falling in love. In literary circles, the term might be used to describe {{speculative fiction}}. We're more interested in how people talk outside of classrooms, so let's get ready for some bodice-ripping, sighs, and passionate embraces all bundled up inside a really lurid bookjacket. Like a RomanceNovel.
