Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale, James B. South [Editor]
2 James B. South [Editor] Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale
Open Court 234354 USA 2004 0812695313 / 9780812695311 Softcover Very Good Condition Twenty-three essays by young professional philosophers examine crucial ethical and metaphysical aspects of the Buffyverse (the world of Buffy). Though the show already attracted much scholarly attention, this is the first book to fully disinter the intellectual issues. Designed by Whedon as a multilevel story with most of its meanings deeply buried in heaps of heavy irony, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has replaced The X-Files as the show that explains to Americans the nature of the powerful forces of evil continually threatening to surge into our world of everyday decency and overwhelm it. In the tradition of the classic horror films Buffy the Vampire Slayer addresses ethical issues that have long fascinated audiences. This book draws out the ethical and metaphysical lessons from a pop-culture phenomenon. 335 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Film::Film and TV; Film, Radio & Television; Philosophy. ISBN: 0812695313. ISBN/EAN: 9780812695311. Inventory No: 234354. Paperback

Fighting The Forces: What's At Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Rhonda C. Wilcox
4 Rhonda C. Wilcox Fighting The Forces: What's At Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 234450 USA 2001 0742516814 / 9780742516816 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition For every television series, the original vision grows within a press of forces-both social and artistic expectations, conventions of the business, as well as conventions of the art. Bad television--predictable, commercial, exploitative--simply yields to the forces. Good television, like the character of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, fights them. Fighting the Forces explores the struggle to create meaning in an impressive example of popular culture, the television series phenomenon Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In the essays collected here, contributors examine the series using a variety of techniques and viewpoints. They analyze the social and cultural issues implicit in the series and place it in its literary context, not only by examining its literary influences (from German liebestod to Huckleberry Finn) but also by exploring the series' purposeful literary allusions. Furthermore, the book explores the extratextual, such as fanfiction and online discussion groups. The book is additionally supplemented by an online journal Slayage (www.slayage.tv), created by the book editors in acknowledgement of the ongoing nature of television art. Rhonda V. Wilcox and David Lavery have written and edited several books and articles exploring the social, literary, and artistic merit of quality television. In addition to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, their work has covered a variety of programs including Twin Peaks, Northern Exposure, The X-Files, and The Sopranos. 290 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Film::Film and TV; Film, Radio & Television; ISBN: 0742516814. ISBN/EAN: 9780742516816. Inventory No: 234450. Paperback

Captain Corelli's Mandolin: The Illustrated Film Companion, Steve Clark
5 Steve Clark Captain Corelli's Mandolin: The Illustrated Film Companion
North Pomfret, Vermont, U.S.A.: Trafalgar Square 227871 USA 2001 First Edition 0747237700 / 9780747237709 Hardcover Fine Condition Fine The island of Cephallonia is now familiar as the setting of the novel, "Captain Corelli's Mandolin". This book explores the turbulent history of the island, focusing on the World War II years of Italian occupation, as well as telling the behind-the-scenes story of how the film version was made. As most buildings on Cephallonia fell to rubble in a 1953 earthquake, the way it would have looked in World War II had to be recreated by sets built for the filming of Louis de Bernieres' now legendary "Captain Corelli's Mandolin". But do not expect the novel to be reproduced so faithfully because that is not the film-makers' style. They add their own visions, carefully explained here in an official companion to the movie, and de Bernieres' introduction shows how he anticipated that. All he could do to ensure respectful treatment of his novel was insist it should not be sold to Hollywood. The history of the filming is itself fascinating - the search for the cast, the locations, even the guns for the massacre of the Italians by the Germans and the other battle sequences. Film journalist Clark has done a good job here, aided and abetted by the stunning Greek island setting and ample action and character stills from the film. Pictorial endpapers.
