Ridley Scott

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=765162&cjsku=765162...
Ridley Scott, the director of such seminal films as Blade Runner, Alien and Thelma & Louise, is one of the most important directors of the last fifty years. Unlike many directors, Scott has been remarkably transparent about his craft, offering the audience glimpses into his creative process. This book explores Scott's oeuvre in depth, devoting a chapter to his 22 primary works, from his first effort, Boy and Bicycle (1962), through Robin Hood (2010). Topics discussed include the critical reception of the films, and the ways in which Scott's works function as cinematic mediators of issues such as religion, women's rights and history.

Ridley Scott

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95579542&cjsku=95579542...
El de Ridley Scott es, en principio, un caso poco comn en la historia del cine. Su filmografa (con 23 ttulos, hasta el momento) cuenta con dos obras, "Alien, el octavo pasajero" (1979) y "Blade Runner" (1982), cuya fama, xito y calidad artstica han superado e, incluso, sobrepasado a su propio director. Nos encontramos ante una carrera amplia y variada, con algunos altibajos y alguna que otra obra poco acertada, pero que, en lneas generales, nos presenta a uno de los directores ms personales e interesantes del cine contemporneo. Ya por s sola esta dicotoma lo hace, a nuestro entender, un cineasta absolutamente relevante a la hora de adentrarnos en su cine con la intencin de analizarlo en profundidad y darle forma a este estudio sobre su obra.

Finding Samuel Lowe

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1745777&cjsku=1745777...
This powerful debut tells the story of Paula Williams Madison's Chinese grandfather, Samuel Lowe. He became romantically involved with a Jamaican woman, Paula's grandmother, and they lived together modestly with their daughter in his Kingston dry goods store, Chiney Shop. In 1920 his Chinese soon-to-be wife arrived to set up a "proper" family. When he requested to take his three-year-old daughter with him, Paula's jealous grandmother made sure that Lowe never saw his child again. That began an almost one-hundred-year break in their family. Years later, the arrival of her only grandchild raising questions about family and legacy, Paula decided to search for Samuel Lowe's descendants in China. With the support of her brothers and the help of encouraging strangers, a determined Paula eventually pieced together her grandfather's life, following his story from China to Jamaica and back. Her amazing search is vividly rendered. Paula has produced an emotional memoir that travels from Toronto to Jamaica to China. Using old documents, digital records, and referrals from the insular and interrelated Chinese-Jamaican community, she found three hundred long-lost relatives in Shenzhen and Guangzhou, China. She even located documented family lineage that traces back three thousand years to 1006 BC. Her wonderfully warm elders, all born in Jamaica and raised in China, shared the history and accomplishments of the Lowes in the East and the West, as well as the hardships and persecution suffered by her capitalist grandfather during the Communist era and the Cultural Revolution. Finding Samuel Lowe is a remarkable journey about one woman's path to self-discovery. It is a story about love and devotion that transcends time and race, and a beautiful reflection of the power of family and the interconnectedness of our world.

F. Scott Fitzgerald at Work

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1762228&cjsku=1762228...
F. Scott Fitzgerald' s The Great Gatsby occupies a preeminent place in American letters. Scholars have argued that Jay Gatsby is, in fact, the embodiment of American cultural and social aspiration. Though The Great Gatsby has been studied in detail since its publication, both readers and scholars have continued to speculate about Fitzgerald' s sources of inspiration.   The essays in F. Scott Fitzgerald at Work examine fresh facts that illuminate the experiences and source materials upon which Fitzgerald based this quintessentially American masterpiece. They confirm author Horst Kruse' s view that Fitzgerald' s flights of fancy, even at their most spectacular, are firmly grounded in biographical experience as well as in the social, literary, and philosophical circumstances of his era.   In the first essay, Kruse reconstructs the life story of the individual who allegedly inspired the character of Jay Gatsby: Max von Gerlach. Kruse recounts his journeys to various archives and libraries in the United States as well as in Germany to unearth new facts about the genesis of the Gatsby characters. In another journey, readers travel with Kruse to Long Island to explore its physical and moral geography in relation to Fitzgerald, specifically the role of certain elite Long Island families in the advancement of the science of eugenics movement. The final two essays take Kruse across the globe to various destinations to consider the broader place of The Great Gatsby in American and international intellectual history.   Replete with fascinating discoveries and insights, F. Scott Fitzgerald at Work both corrects previous assumptions about The Great Gatsby and deepens our appreciation and understanding of Fitzgerald s imagination.

The Films of Randolph Scott

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2231303&cjsku=2231303...
Reclusive American actor Randolph Scott, known for his subtle, dignified performances in almost 60 westerns, has been called the "most genuine Westerner." His career began in 1928 with the first of several bit parts; his first starring role was 1932's Heritage of the Desert. He fought in World War I, studying horsemanship, shooting, and bayoneting, and acted in a variety of films in every genre from musical to swashbuckler. His final film was Ride the High Country (1962). Chronologically arranged from his birth in 1898 to his death in 1987, this book covers every film in which Randolph Scott acted. Each section begins with a biographical chapter and then lists Scott's films from that period: each film's entry has filmographic information, a synopsis, and detailed commentary, discussing such topics as the financial aspects, production details, acting, other participants, anecdotes, and critical responses. Quotes from interviews with figures in the industry and published reviews bolster the entries. A bibliographical essay completes the work, which is heavily illustrated with stills and promotional materials.

Harold Bloom, Yale literature professor, introduces this volume of critical essays, which also includes a chronology of Fitzgerald's life, a bibliography, and an index for quick reference.

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=539996&cjsku=539996...
Self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby epitomizes the decadence of the 1920s Jazz Age in this tale of mobility and decline told with detached curiosity by his neighbor and confidant Nick Carraway. As Harold Bloom suggests, in his introduction to this new edition of full-length critical essays on the work, the novel transcends its own time period in the ways it addresses classic American themes of identity and success. The Great Gatsby has only a few rivals as the great American novel of the twentieth century;...Even after many decades, the relevance of the novel increases, because it is the definitive romance of the American Dream, a concept or vision that haunts our society. In the course of narration, Nick presents himself not only as Gatsby's best believer, but also as one of Gatsby's biggest skeptics. While Nick's faith in Gatsby thus encourages the reader's own receptivity,...Nick's reservations prevent the reader from going overboard, from accepting Gatsby's magic too natively, believing too completely in his smile. Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations, aseries of more than 100 volumes, presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels, and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and The Iliad to such modern and contemporary works as William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and Don DeLillo's White Noise. Each volume opens with an introductory essay and editor's note by Harold Bloom and includes a bibliography, a chronology of the writer's life and works, and notes on the contributors. Taken together, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations provides a comprehensive critical guide to the most vital and influential works of the Western literary tradition.
