9780745315782: Retrovisions: Reinventing the Past in Film and Fiction (Film/Fiction)
Reseña del editor:

The contributors to Retrovisions consider what happens to history in the movies. Focusing on films and texts from the 1950s to the 1990s, the contributors argue that the past has always come to us by way of previous texts and culturally bounded aesthetic categories, and that history films - to the despair of historians - have always taken a 'postmodern' approach to their subject, seeing the past as a dynamic resource for exciting stories and poetic, morally uplifting untruths. Why do certain decades appeal at certain times? And what does the renewal of interest in narrative history reveal about our culture at the start of the new millennium?

The authors address the variety of ways in which history can be used, refashioned and made over to reflect current concerns - and how history films from the past can be reinterrogated to learn what they tell us about their own times. The films discussed include Elizabeth, Shakespeare in Love, Culloden, The Avengers, Titus, and several adaptations of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, including Cruel Intentions.

Reseña del editor:

This innovative book looks at the ways in which films and texts re-imagine the past, to investigate what this may reveal about our contemporary culture and society. Looking at a broad range of films and books that attempt to represent the past and placing them in their own historical context, the authors examine how different eras are represented, what they have come to signify, and what this reveals about the society that reimagines them. Using a wide range of examples, contributors consider nostalgia, intertextuality, pastiche and contemporary culture. The films discussed include "Elizabeth", "Shakespeare in Love", "Culloden", "The Avengers", "Titus" and several adaptations of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses", including "Cruel Intentions".

Descripción Pluto Press, 2001. Soft cover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. Card covers shows a few signs of ownership, one small 1cm pen mark on rear cover, otherwise fairly good condition. Internally near fine. Fourteen authors examine such films as The Forbidden Planet ( the retrospective attribution of intention: why for example Island of Lost Souls rarely gets the same critical acknowledgment despite also being based on Shakespeare's Tempest.) Shakespeare in Love (the how the film plays between audience awareness, popular myths, and academic elitism, via in-jokes) , Elizabeth ( the convention of the Virgin Queen in recent films, including Orlando and Shakespeare in Love.) For helpful synopsis click on 'booksellers image'. Selling books since 1999, all proceeds help fund LOROS Charity Hospice. Nº de ref. de la librería 000112
