Narration in Light by George M. Wilson

Book Description

A full understanding and appreciation of narrative film, George Wilson argues, requires a concept of point of view necessarily distinct from, yet comparable to, contemporary theories of point of view in prose fiction. Now available in paperback, Narration in Light lays the foundations for a new account of cinematic point of view. Focusing on the special ways in which a film controls the access of its viewers to the events that constitute its narrative, Wilson offers close viewings of five classic Hollywood movies: You Only Live Once, North by Northwest, Letter from an Unknown Woman, The Devil Is a Woman, and Rebel without a Cause. His enlightening and entertaining interpretations reveal surprising power and complexity in popular, major-studio films. Their point-of-view strategies allow them to present both obvious and oblique perspectives on their subjects, providing subtle critiques of ideology within conventional drama and narrative.

Seeing Fictions in Film by George M. Wilson Seeing Fictions in Film, Paperback (October 2013)

What happens when we view a movie? Do we actually see the fiction, and if so how? Literary fiction is recounted by a voice of some sort-the narrator. George M. Wilson explores the strategies of cinematic narration, and argues that this prompts viewers to imagine seeing and hearing events in the fictional world.

Patriots and Redeemers in Japan by George M. Wilson Patriots and Redeemers in Japan, Paperback (December 1991)

In this concise but ambitious historiographical essay, Wilson argues for an approach to the Meiji Restoration that emphasizes multiple lines of motive and action. "By bringing some very interesting critical theory to his reading, Wilson has produced a book that will shift the terms of discussion on this event." Harry D. Harootunian"
