Silent film & the triumph of the American myth by Paula Marantz Cohen( Book )

20 editions published between 1981 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Silent Film and the Triumph of the American Myth, Paula Marantz Cohen tells the story of silent film's rise. American silent film, she contends, answered the call by nineteenth-century writers like Emerson and Thoreau for an original mode of expression compatible with American strengths and weaknesses. Tracing silent film's roots in popular nineteenth-century forms such as vaudeville, landscape painting, and portrait photography, Cohen documents the way silent film took three elements already charged with meaning - the body, the landscape, and the face - and developed the cinematic genres of comedy, the western, and the melodrama. At the same time, American silent film helped produce a new concept of character, embodied in the movie star. -- from back cover

Alfred Hitchcock : the legacy of Victorianism by Paula Marantz Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Also central to her thesis is the Victorian model of the nuclear family and its permutations, especially the father-daughter dyad. She postulates a fundamental dynamic in Hitchcock's films, what she calls a "daughter's effect," and relates it to the social role of the family as an institution and to Hitchcock's own relationship with his daughter, Patricia, who appeared in three of his films. Cohen argues that Hitchcock's films reflect his Victorian legacy and serve as a map for ideological trends. She charts his development from his British period through his classic Hollywood years into his later phase, tracing a conceptual evolution that corresponds to an evolution in cultural identity - one that builds on a Victorian inheritance and ultimately discards it

Henry James's Europe: Heritage and Transfer by Dennis Tredy( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an American author who chose to live in Europe, Henry James frequently wrote about cultural differences between the Old and New World. The plight of bewildered Americans adrift on a sea of European sophistication became a regular theme in his fiction. This collection of twenty-four papers from some of the world's leading James scholars offers a comprehensive picture of the author's cross-cultural aesthetics. It provides detailed analyses of James's perception of Europe-of its people and places, its history and culture, its artists and thinkers, its aesthetics and its ethics-which ultimately lead to a profound reevaluation of his writing. With in-depth analysis of his works of fiction, his autobiographical and personal writings, and his critical works, the collection is a major contribution to current thinking about James, transtextuality and cultural appropriation
