Italian Cinema: Gender and Genre by Maggie Gunsberg

Book Description

Maggie Gunsberg examines popular genre cinema in Italy during the 1950s and 1960s, focussing on melodrama, commedia all'italiana , peplum, horror and the spaghetti western. These genres are explored from a gender standpoint which takes into account the historical and socio-economic context of cinematic production and consumption. An interdisciplinary feminist approach informed by current film theory and other perspectives (psychoanalytic, materialist, deconstructive), leads to the analysis of genre-specific representations of femininity and masculinity as constructed by the formal properties of film.

Gender and the Italian Stage by Maggie Gunsberg Gender and the Italian Stage, Paperback (October 2007)

An exploration of the portrayal of gender on the Italian stage from the Renaissance to the present, in a social and theoretical context.

Patriarchal Representations by Maggie Gunsberg Patriarchal Representations, Hardback (January 1994)

Examines the representation of gender relations in Pirandello's writing, and assesses his status as an avant garde author. This book argues that while he can certainly be described as avant garde on the level of dramatic form, he cannot be said to innovate at the more covert level of gender relations.
