About This Item

Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society. First paperback edition. Softcover volume, measuring approximately 6" x 9", displays light shelfwear. Binding is sound. Pages are clean and bright. xiii/274 pages.
""Subversive Pleasures" offers the first extended application of Mikhail Bakhtin's critical methods to film, mass-media, and cultural studies. With extraordinary interdisciplinary and multicultural range, Robert Stam explores issues that include the "translinguistic" critique of Saussurean semiotics and Russian formalisn, the question of language difference in the cinema, issues of national culture in Latin America, and "the carnivalesque" in literature and film. He discusses literary works by Rabelais, Shakespeare, and Jarry and treats films by Vigo, Bunuel, Wertmuller, Imamura, Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Marleen Gooris, and others...a splendidly lucid introduction to the central concepts and analytical methods of Bakhtin and the Bakhtin circle."
