A Companion To Ancient Greece And Rome On Screen

by Arthur J. Pomeroy, A Companion To Ancient Greece And Rome On Screen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Companion To Ancient Greece And Rome On Screen books, A comprehensive treatment of the Classical World in film and television, A Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen closely examines the films and TV shows centered on Greek and Roman cultures and explores the tension between pagan and Christian worlds. Written by a team of experts in their fields, this work considers productions that discuss social settings as reflections of their times and as indicative of the technical advances in production and the economics of film and television. Productions included are a mix of Hollywood and European spanning from the silent film era though modern day television series, and topics discussed include Hollywood politics in film, soundtrack and sound design, high art and low art, European art cinemas, and the ancient world as comedy. Written for students of film and television as well as those interested in studies of ancient Rome and Greece, A Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen provides comprehensive, current thinking on how the depiction of Ancient Greece and Rome on screen has developed over the past century. It reviews how films of the ancient world mirrored shifting attitudes towards Christianity, the impact of changing techniques in film production, and fascinating explorations of science fiction and technical fantasy in the ancient world on popular TV shows like Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, and Dr. Who.

Hollywood S Ancient Worlds

by Jeffrey Richards, Hollywood S Ancient Worlds Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hollywood S Ancient Worlds books, Jeffrey Richards examines the cultural, social, economic and technological circumstances that dictated the rise and decline of each successive cycle of Ancient World epics, from the silent film era, to the "golden age" of the 1950s, right up to the present day (Gladiator, 300, Rome). Analysis reveals that historical films are always as much about the time in which they are made as they are about the time in which they are set. The ancient world is often used to deliver messages to the contemporary audience about the present: hostility to totalitarian regimes both Fascist and Communist, concern at the decline of Christianity, support for the new state of Israel, celebrations of equality and democracy, and concern about changing gender roles. The whole adds up to a fresh look at a body of films that people think they know, but about which they will learn a good deal more.

Greek Tragedy On Screen

by Pantelis Michelakis, Greek Tragedy On Screen Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Greek Tragedy On Screen books, Greek Tragedy on Screen considers a wide range of films which engage openly with narrative and performative aspects of Greek tragedy. This volume situates these films within the context of on-going debates in film criticism and reception theory in relation to theoretical or critical readings of tragedy in contemporary culture. Michelakis argues that film adaptations of Greek tragedy need to be placed between the promises of cinema for a radical popular culture, and the divergent cultural practices and realities of commercial films, art-house films, silent cinema, and films for television, home video, and DVD. In an age where the boundaries between art and other forms of cultural production are constantly intersected and reconfigured, the appeal of Greek tragedy for the screen needs to be related to the longing it triggers for origins and authenticity, as well as to the many uncertainties, such as homelessness, violence, and loss of identity, with which it engages. The films discussed include not only critically recognized films by directors such Michael Cacoyannis, Jules Dassin, and Pier Paolo Pasolini, but also more recent films by Woody Allen, Tony Harrison, Werner Herzog, and Lars von Trier. Moreover, it also considers earlier and largely neglected films of cinematic traditions which lie outside Hollywood.

Classics And Media Theory

by Pantelis Michelakis, Classics And Media Theory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Classics And Media Theory books, Introducing a largely neglected area of existing interactions between Greco-Roman antiquity and media theory, this volume addresses the question of why interactions in this area matter and how they might be developed further. It aims not only to promote awareness of the presence of the classics in media theory but also to encourage more media attentiveness among scholars of Greece and Rome. By bringing together an international team of scholars with interdisciplinary expertise in areas ranging from classical literature and classical reception studies to art history, media theory and media history, film studies, philosophy, and cultural studies, the volume as a whole engages with numerous aspects of 'classical' Greece and Rome revolving around issues of philosophy, cultural history, literature, aesthetics, and epistemology. Each chapter provides its own definition of what constitutes mediality and how it operates, constructs different genealogies of the concept of the medium, and engages with emergent fields within media studies that range from cultural techniques to media archaeology, diagrammatology, and intermediality. By seeking to foreground the persistency of Greco-Roman paradigms across the different strands of media theory the volume persuasively calls for a closer consideration of the conceptual underpinnings of the cultural practices around the transformation of ancient Greece and Rome into 'classics.'

Heiliger Zorn

by Catherine Nixey, Heiliger Zorn Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Heiliger Zorn books, Packend erzählt von der preisgekrönten jungen Historikerin Catherine Nixey Im Römischen Reich war das religiöse Leben vielfältig – bis unter den ersten christlichen Kaisern alles anders wurde: Mit aller Macht versuchten die frühen Christen, Andersgläubige zu bekehren, und erwiesen sich dabei nicht nur als extrem intolerant, sondern auch als äußerst gewalttätig. Im ganzen Imperium zertrümmerten sie Tempel und Kultgegenstände, verbrannten Bücher, jagten Philosophen aus den Städten und verfolgten diejenigen, die weiter den alten Göttern opferten. In »Heiliger Zorn« zeichnet die britische Altphilologin und Journalistin Catherine Nixey ein gänzlich neues und zutiefst erschütterndes Bild der frühen Christen als die wahren Barbaren. Packend enthüllt sie die Gräueltaten, die hinter dem Triumph des Christentums stecken und mit zum Untergang der Antike führten.
