Bram Stoker's Dracula: Sucking Through the Century, 1897-1997

In 1897, Archibald Constable & corporation released a singular by way of the unheralded Bram Stoker. That novel, Dracula, has long gone directly to develop into probably the main influential novel of all time. To commemorate the centennial of that fab novel, Carol Margaret Davison has introduced jointly this number of essays by means of the various world's top students. The essays research Stoker's unique novel and rejoice its legacy in pop culture. the continued presence of Dracula and vampire fiction and movies presents facts that, as Davison writes, Dracula is "alive and sucking. "

"Dracula is a Gothic mandala, an enormous layout within which a number of reflections of the weather of the style are configured in dependent units of symmetries. it's also a type of lens, bringing concentration and compression to diversified Gothic motifs, together with not just vampirism yet insanity, the evening, spoiled innocence, disease in nature, sacrilege, cannibalism, necrophilia, psychic projection, the succubus, the incubus, the destroy, and the tomb. amassing up and unifying all that got here earlier than it, and casting its nice shadow over all that got here and maintains to return after, its effect on twentieth-century Gothic fiction and picture is exclusive and impossible to resist. "

Die Dramatisierung von Innenwelten im Film

Das Buch beantwortet, woher ein Zuschauer wissen kann, wie sich eine Figur im movie fühlt, was once sie denkt und used to be in ihrem Innersten vorgeht. Dabei wird zunächst beschrieben, welche Mechanismen wirken, wenn wir in unserem Alltag Menschen einschätzen, ihre Mimik interpretieren oder Empathie empfinden. Wirken im movie die selben Mechanismen?

Sample text

As this contrast has been amplified rather than resolved by the EU’s INTRODUCTION: HANEKE’S ANACHRONISM 19 outward expansion and inward restructuring, Haneke’s analysis of the intricate links between consumerism, the decline of the family, and historical amnesia is once again European in its outlook. Horwath’s early assessment of Haneke’s work, though it was able to consider only the first of his feature films, would prove prescient. While the glaciation trilogy constitutes an expansion of Haneke’s artistic scope and aesthetic means of expression, this expansion feels more like a specification.

These consist of shots of the front entrances of high schools, whose names are displayed but with letters missing or crumbling. If The Seventh Continent depicts the institution’s lack of understanding towards the child, Benny’s Video shows how the inadequacy of its structures invite the child’s abuse of them, as evident in Benny’s bully behavior and his cynical repurposing INTRODUCTION: HANEKE’S ANACHRONISM 21 of choir practice. 71 Fragments effectively uses its depiction of foster care to trace the contrast between a society’s aspiration to care for its young and the massive, irreversible damages caused by the limitations of this system of care.

But it is important to note that Haneke did not just discover this broad range of non-mainstream devices with his move into theatrical feature film production. His TV films already used some of them – one recalls the highly elliptical editing in Three Paths to the Lake; the INTRODUCTION: HANEKE’S ANACHRONISM 25 harrowing long take of the abortion attempt in Lemmings, Part One; the creative disjunction of image and sound in Variation, the use of color and black-and-white stock in Fraulein, and the plethora of anti-illusionist devices boasted by Who Was Edgar Allan?.
