Abstract

' You can' t have too much romance, according to the advertising by-line of Mills and Boon, This paper flirts with the carnality of consumption, casts a sidelong glance at the erotics of exchange and draws a discreet veil over the dirty mackintosh wearers of marketing, Campbell s much-vaunted' romantic ethic of consumer society is also dallied with and salacious rumours about the relationship between marketing and romanticism are egregiously spread, Don' t tell anyone. Promise?
