Being Boys

Melanie Tebbutt

Manchester University Press

Chapter 5 continues this examination of how these changes affected the emotional landscapes of young men's lives by scrutinising how the ‘male world’ of youthful feeling was expressed through the advice columns of popular newspapers and magazines, which expanded significantly in the 1930s. The chapter samples letters from boys and young men to illustrate a complex interplay of discourse and mediated experience to help illustrate their responses to the period's informalising expectations and changing social relations.
