Contesting Tears: The Hollywood Melodrama of the Unknown Woman - Paperback

ISBN: 0226098168

[SR: 415232], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780226098166], University of Chicago Press, University of Chicago Press, Book, [PU: University of Chicago Press], 1997-02-01, University of Chicago Press, What do the movie masterpieces Gaslight, Stella Dallas, Now, Voyager, and Letter from an Unknown Woman have in common? Stanley Cavell, Harvard professor and film lover, believes they make up a small genre: the Hollywood melodrama of the unknown woman. In this sequel to his book Pursuits of Happiness, Cavell argues that these darkly beautiful films respond to issues raised in such comedies of remarriage as The Philadelphia Story, Adam's Rib, and The Awful Truth. The author's prose is sometimes challenging, but he remains one of the most interesting critics of film genre and classic Hollywood. One would be hard-pressed to find an author who writes about individual films with his kind of rigor, or who connects the various issues they raise to so many different philosophies of mind and art. The section in which Cavell refutes the academic commonplace that the camera offers viewers only the male gaze is particularly well done. In it, Cavell lists sequence after sequence in classic Hollywood films in which audiences are invited to look through the eyes--and the desires--of women. --Raphael Shargel, 59670011, Kunst & Fotografie, 1319947031, Anleitungen, 60357011, Architektur, 60261011, Darstellende Künste, 336963011, Design & Verzierungskunst, 59671011, Fotografie, 60177011, Geschichte & Kritik, 60168011, Malen, 60153011, Mode, 60226011, Museen & Sammlungen, 336964011, Nachschlagewerke, 55554011, Religiös, 60179011, Schulen, Strömungen & Stile, 60223011, Skulptur, 60342011, Zeichnen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 64307011, Geschichte & Kritik, 64299011, Filme, 64226011, Unterhaltung & Kultur, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 69108011, Sozialwissenschaften, 69109011, Anthropologie, 56779011, Archäologie, 69165011, Besondere Gruppen, 69180011, Bibliotheks- & Informationswissenschaften, 69119011, Bräuche & Traditionen, 1321878031, Demographie, 65292011, Diskriminierung & Rassismus, 1321879031, Emigration & Immigration, 69122011, Folklore & Mythologie, 69135011, Forschung, 69123011, Frauen- & Geschlechterforschung, 69129011, Gerontologie, 69178011, Gewalt in der Gesellschaft, 69130011, Humangeographie, 69177011, Kindheitsforschung, 69272011, Linguistik, 69179011, Medienwissenschaften, 1321880031, Methodik, 1321881031, Nachschlagewerke, 69132011, Philanthropie & Wohltätigkeit, 69214011, Philosophie, 69216011, Politikwissenschaften, 64591011, Popkultur, 69133011, Pornographie, 69136011, Sozialarbeit, 69137011, Soziologie, 69176011, Statistik, 69028011, Sachbücher, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

Contesting Tears: The Hollywood Melodrama of the Unknown Woman
Author:

Cavell, Stanley

Title:

Contesting Tears: The Hollywood Melodrama of the Unknown Woman

ISBN:

9780226098166

The author provides close readings of four melodramas he finds definitive of the genre: Letter From An Unknown Woman; Gaslight; Now, Voyager; and Stella Dallas. The women in these melodramas, like the women in the comedies, demand equality, shared education, and transfiguration, exemplifying for the author a moral perfectionism he identifies as Emersonian.
