The angelic conversation by Derek Jarman( Visual )

51 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'My most austere work, but also the closest to my heart.' So Derek Jarman described The Angelic Conversation, his lyrical celebration of gay love set within the context of a series of Shakespeare's sonnets. Ethereal Super-8 images slowed to a magical, meditative pace follow the love affair between two men, as Dame Judi Dench provides a soothing presence with her narration of fourteen sonnets. The disruption of the narrative with images of barren and threatening landscapes echoes perfectly the exaltation and torment explored in the works. Polished off with dreamlike music by Coil, Jarman's most cherished film is an intoxicating portrait of love

Chroma : a book of color by Derek Jarman( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chroma is a meditation on the color spectrum by the celebrated late artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman. From the explosions of image and color in In The Shadow of the Sun, The Last of England, The Garden and Wittgenstein, to the somber blacks of his collages and tar paintings, Jarman has consistently used color in unprecedented ways, making his ideas on the subject of interest to filmmakers, film audiences, artists and students alike. Blue, his most personal and innovative film, consists of a compelling soundtrack accompanied by a monochrome blue image and is, among other things, a comment on Jarman's diminishing eyesight due to AIDS. In his signature style, a lyrical combination of classical theory, anecdote, and poetry, Jarman takes the reader through the spectrum, introducing each color as an embodiment of an emotion, evoking memories or dreams. He explains the use of color in Medieval painting through the Renaissance to the modernists and draws on the great color theorists from Pliny to Leonardo. He writes too about the meanings of color in literature, science, philosophy, psychology, religion and alchemy. Read either as a work on color, or a distillation of Jarman's artistic vision, Chroma presents an exciting perspective on the subject
At your own risk : a saint's testament by Derek Jarman( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While similary rooted in its author's daily life as Jarman's "Modern Nature", and similarly a testament to his rage and courage, this book goes beyond autobiography into the politics of sexuality and health care. A chronological scrapbook, it surveys the lif e of a man who grew up as a queer in the 1950s and 60s, became gay in the early 70s and has recently been transformed into a queer again. He has also come out for a second time, this time as having HIV. "A distinctly jolly martyr"

Modern nature by Derek Jarman( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third of British filmmaker Jarman's memoirs (following "At your own risk" and "Dancing ledge") covers the years 1989 and 1990, during which he struggles to keep working despite his status as publicly HIV-positive, and he reflects on life, sensuality and the beauty of nature. He writes sensitive, observant prose, though the book's fragmentary style sometimes vitiates its power. The author looks back to his childhood and the schools of the 1960s - as they actually were, instead of how the current nostalgia craze paints them. Candid, critical, and moving, Jarman uses words as skillfully as he does images in film, to evoke a scene or make a point
