Description

The essays collected in this book reflect some of the commitments and changes during the period that saw the women's movement shift into feminism and the development of feminism's involvement with the politics of representation, psychoanalytic film theory and avant-garde aesthetics.;The essays also tell, implicitly, a personal story - of someone gradually learning to express themselves in writing through feminism and becoming visibly more articulate over the course of time. Central to the collection is Mulvey's famous polemic "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema". Mulvey has directed six films with Peter Wollen and is a major British cultural theorist.
