James Joyce and the revolution of the word by Colin MacCabe( Book )

39 editions published between 1976 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second edition of Colin MacCabe's acclaimed James Joyce and the Revolution of the Word reprints a classic critical text on Joyce and adds a wealth of new material which places the text in its political and historical context. This new edition reflects on the way in which the original analysis grew out of the politics and culture of the late 1960s. In addition, new material makes clear Joyce's relation to the literary canon and elaborates more clearly a non-representational theory of realism."--Jacket

Godard : a portrait of the artist at 70 by Colin MacCabe( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Turkish and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Luc Godard's early films revolutionised the language of cinema for everyone, from the Superbrats of Hollywood to the political film-makers of the Third World, and he remains today the most influential of film-makers. Drawing on his experience of working with Godard, Colin MacCabe has written the first biography of the reclusive director, sketching the portrait of a man determined to make cinema the greatest of the arts." "Hugely prolific in his first decade (Breathless, Contempt, Pierrot Le Fou, Alphaville, made in USA are merely some of his titles), Godard worked with a new generation of stars including Jean Seberg. Brigitte Bardot, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina, whom he married in 1961. But as the 1960s progressed he became more and more disillusioned with the Hollywood he had idolised. His second wife Anne Wiazemsky provided an entree to the student politics that would explode on to the world's front pages in May '68. For the next four years Godard's cinema would be made at the service of Maoist politics." "It was with his third partner, Anne-Marie Mieville, that Godard made the final break with both politics and conventional film to create a completely new form of cinema with films like the extraordinarily beautiful and still little-known work, Histoire(s) Du Cinema." "Illustrated throughout with more than 100 photographs, this authoritative biography is both a recognition of Godard's genius and a perceptive investigation of French cinema, the events of May '68 and Modernism's long finish."--BOOK JACKET

True to the spirit : film adaptation and the question of fidelity by Colin MacCabe( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adaptation persists as a major area of inquiry in both film and literary studies. Over the past two decades, scholars have extended the debate well beyond George Bluestone's influential Novels into Film (1957) by taking into account such concerns as intertextuality and different forms of narrative enabled through new media. A dominant trend has been to dispense straight away with questions of fidelity and "faithfulness," the assumption being that such views are naïve, moralistic, and rooted in a cultural prejudice against the audiovisual. While acknowledging the merits of this position--namely its complication of the one-way "page-to-screen" perspective--this collection seeks to put the question of fidelity back into play. The essays explore the ways in which the newer, more sophisticated approaches can still accommodate forms of fidelity between two or more texts without having to reinscribe untenable distinctions between "original" and "copy," and without having to argue from a strict media essentialist position that stages an impasse between linguistic and cinematic means of articulation. In addition, the scholars in this volume seek to recognize and account for fidelity's cultural currency among filmmakers and audiences alike, no matter how impossible fidelity might be in a literal sense. The selected essays offer an opportunity to showcase both well established adaptation scholars (Laura Mulvey, Dudley Andrew, Tom Gunning and James Naremore) and emerging voices in the field
