Returning to Jean-Jacques Rousseau s foundational, Enlightenment-era melodrama Pygmalion with its revival of an old story about sculpted objects that spring to life, it contends that this early production prefigures the structure of contemporary melodramas and serves as a model for the way we interact with media today. Melodrama is conceptualized as a plastic form with the capacity to mould and be moulded and that speaks to fundamental processes of mediation Notes: Includes bibliographical references (pages 171-188), filmography (pages 188-189), and index ISBN: 9781783480470 Contents: Introduction -- Mad Men: melodrama and metamorphosis -- Turned back: advertising, televisual melodrama and metamorphosis in Mad Men -- Earth-object: melodrama and plasticity in Lars Von Trier's Melancholia -- Melodrama and plasticity in Todd Haynes's Mildred Pierce -- Postlude: Animated statue, melody, encore (moi!)
