Summary: "Superbly translated from the definitive Russian texts, and copiously annotated, Volume 1 documents the complex course of Eisenstein's writings during the revolutionary years prior to the establishment of Socialist Realism as orthodox Soviet aesthetic doctrine. This was also the period of Eisenstein's great silent masterpieces, The Strike, The Battleship Potemkin, October and The General Line, and of his controversial sojourns in Hollywood and Mexico. The writings in this first volume give a picture of Eisenstein the committed socialist artist, passionately engaged in the debates over the art forms of the future, but also of Eisenstein the humorist and Eisenstein the profoundly innovative aesthetic thinker." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Translated from the Russian ISBN: 9781848853553 Contents: -- general editor's preface -- introduction -- translator's note -- abbreviations -- 1922 -- 1: Sergei Yutkevich and Eisenstein: The Eighth art.

Sergei Eisenstein: selected works : volume 2, Towards aTheory of Montage / edited by Michael Glenny and Richard Taylor

Tauris PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: xx, 428 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Selected works Subject: MONTAGE; THEORY; EISENSTEIN, SERGEI M. Summary: "The name of Sergei Eisenstein has long been synonymous with the idea of montage, as exemplified in his silent classics such as The Strike (1925), The Battleship Potemkin (1925), and October (1927). In the 1930s his style changed, partly to accomodate the arrival of sound, and his ideas on audio-visual counterpoint developed. Between 1937 and 1940 he elaborated his ideas on montage in a series of essays, most of which remained unpublished until after his death and which are published in English for the first time inTowards a Theory of Montage. Collectively these essays present the essence of Eisenstein's thinking on cinema and aesthetics more generaaly and reveal him as one of the most significant philosophers of art of the twentieth century." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Translated from Russian ISBN: 9781848853560 Contents: -- general editor's preface -- Michael Glenny: an appreciation -- note on sources -- introduction: Geoffrey Nowell-Smith -- on the story of 'Montage 1937' -- foreword -- 1: draft of 'introduction' -- part one: montage in single set-up cinema -- 2: montage 1937 -- 3: montage and architecture -- 4: Yermolova -- part two: montage in multiple set-up cinema -- 5: laocoon -- 6: Pushkin the Montageur: 'The battle against the pechenegs' and 'poltava' The iron cannon-balls -- part three: sound-film montage -- 7: [rhythm] -- 8: 'The girl like a ray of light' -- 9:on colour -- 10: unity in image -- 11: Tolstoy's 'Anna Karenina' - the races -- 12: montage 1938 -- 13: Vertical montage -- notes -- index -- More info

Tauris PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: xiv, 405 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Selected works Summary: "In the period covered by this volume, which follows on from Volume 1: Writings 1922-34 and parallels Volume 2: Towards a Theory of Montage, Eisenstein's film-making ran into the difficulties generated by the Soviet authorities' increasingly restrictive definition of Socialist Realism, by the show trials and the purges, the Second World War, and the post-war proclamation of rigid cultural orthodoxy by Stalin's henchman, Andrei Zhdanov. In this volume, we experience Eisenstein's reaction to this hostile environement, as film-maker, theorist and teacher, from his public obeisance over Bezhin Meadow to his private defiance with Ivan the Terrible.
