Book Description:
With this lucid translation of Du litteraire au filmique, Andr Gaudreault's highly influential and original study of film narratology is now accessible to English language audiences for the first time. Building a theory of narrative on sources as diverse as Plato, The Arabian Nights,and Proust, From Plato to Lumi re challenges narratological orthodoxy by positing that all forms of narrative are mediated by an 'underlying narrator' who exists between the author and narrative text. Offering illuminating insights, definitions, and formal distinctions, Gaudreault examines the practices of novelists, playwrights, and filmmakers and applies his theory to the early cinema of the Lumi re brothers and more recent films. He also enhances our understanding of how narrative develops visually without language monstration by detailing how the evolution of the medium influenced narratives in cinema. From Plato to Lumi re includes a translation of Paul Ricoeur's preface to the French language edition as well as a new preface by Tom Gunning. It is a must read for cinema and media students and scholars and an essential text on the study of narrative.
