MELLER, Peter

Description

She-Devil with Victim
The relation between the sexes was one of Mellers favorite themes, and he treated it in ways that range from the humorous to the sentimental to the tragic. Sensitive to the dynamics of domination and submissiveness that operate beneath the surface of romantic relationships, he was particularly fond of representing the ways in which women - the weaker sex often exert power over men. - Katrina Zee
