Interpretation and Judgment: A Reading of "Lonesome Dove."
Thorburn, David
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v10 n2 p113-27 Jun 1993
Defends the importance for media study of a descriptive and evaluative scholarship grounded in old-humanist perspectives. Uses the television miniseries "Lonesome Dove" as a case study to argue that media texts, like literary works, can and should be evaluated according to the criteria of "formal mastery" and "intellectual coherence."
