Louisa Hammond, who I shall be forever grateful to because of this, mentioned that the book Braveheart and Broomsticks: Essays on Movies, Myths and Magic by Elycia Arendt, has a chapter all about Labyrinth!!
The chapter is called “The Feminine Spectatorship of Labyrinth on the Internet” and, according to my sources, deals with the sloploads of ooey-gooey “Jareth + Sarah = true lerve 4-ever” fan fiction. Apparently the author argues that these fan fiction rewrites foreclose on the feminist possibilities inherent in Labyrinth.
What a gas. Again Louisa makes my day. I simply must order a copy of this book when I have a spare moment.
Note to self: Look for other similar books mentioning L!!!
