The Russian Prospero : the creative universe of Viacheslav Ivanov by Robert Bird( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Viacheslav Ivanov (1866-1949), the central intellectual force in Russian modernism, achieved through his work an original synthesis of Christianity, Platonism, and the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. His powerful intellect exerted an immeasurable influence in modernist Russia and the early Soviet Union, and after emigrating to Italy in 1924 he played an important role in intellectual debates in Western Europe between the wars." "In The Russian Prospero, Robert Bird uncovers the foundations of Ivanov's poetic and theoretical universe, traces its evolution, and explores its connections to cultural and intellectual currents in international modernism. Blending a close reading of Ivanov's work with a thoughtful analysis of his place within twentieth-century thought, Bird finds that Ivanov's ecstatic creative psychology leads directly to a consideration of history as a continuum of human interpretive activity and to a conception of art as a historical force. He emphasizes and dramatizes Ivanov's quest to harness the power of art and apply it to concrete life-situations."--BOOK JACKET

Andrei Rublev by Robert Bird( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-86) was one of the great poets of world cinema. A fiercely independent artist, Tarkovsky crafted films of beauty and depth. These qualities are present in abundance in Andrei Rublev (1966), Tarkovsky's first fully independent film. Ostensibly a biographical study of Russia's most famous medieval icon-painter, Andrei Rublev is both lyrical and epic, starkly naturalistic and allegorical, authentically historical and urgently topical. The Soviet authorities prevented the film's domestic release for five years, until its success at Cannes forced their hand. However, implacable enemies of the regime such as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn also found Andrei Rublev's grim realism unsettling. While much remains mysterious in Andrei Rublev, critics have recently begun to re-appraise it as a groundbreaking film which exploits the manifold discontinuities of human experience to undermine comfortable notions of life and spirituality." "Robert Bird's multi-faceted account of Andrei Rublev extends this re-evaluation of Tarkovsky's radical aesthetic by establishing the film's historical context and presenting a substantially new reading of key scenes. Bird establishes the film's tortured textual history, which has resulted in two vastly different versions. He relates the film to traditions in Russian art and intellectual history, but finally his analysis focuses on Andrei Rublev as a visual and narrative artwork which treats the profoundest existential questions by challenging conventional notions of representation and vision."--Jacket
Fyodor Dostoevsky by Robert Bird( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crime and Punishment, The Brothers Karamazov, Demons, The Idiot-the complex and prolific Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-81) is responsible for some of our greatest literary works and most fascinating characters. Praised by the likes of Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, and Virginia Woolf, he is also acknowledged by critics to be a preeminent writer of psychological fiction and a precursor of the twentieth-century existentialism. Set in the troubled political and social world of nineteenth-century Russia, Dostoevsky's stories were shaped by the great suffering and difficult

Vision and Communism : Viktor Koretsky and dissident public visual culture by V Koret︠s︡kiĭ( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last thirty years of the Soviet Communist project, Viktor Koretsky's art struggled to solve an enduring riddle: how to ensure or restore Communism's moral health through the production of a distinctively Communist vision. In this sense Koretsky's art demonstrates what an "avant-garde late Communist art" would have looked like if we had ever seen it mature. Most striking of all, Koretsky was pioneering the visual languages of Benetton and MTV at a time when the iconography of interracial togetherness was still only a vague rumor on Madison Avenue. Vision and Communism presents a series o

How's your news? by Arthur Bradford( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How's your news?" may seem an odd question to ask a stranger, but in this documentary about five disabled adults who travel across the country as news reporters, it isn't the question that matters. Traveling coast to coast, the outgoing reporters explore honky-tonk bars, alligator farms, the Grand Canyon, and wild city streets. The film is a tribute to the subjects, often sweet but never exploitative, and captures the public's response to encountering these individuals who wield not only a camera and a microphone, but often more insight than viewers might expect
