9780786422470: Pasolini, Chaucer And Boccaccio: Two Medieval Texts And Their Translation to Film

Pier Pasolini’s “trilogy of life” is a series of film adaptations of major texts of the past: The Decameron, The Canterbury Tales, and One Thousand and One Nights. The movies demonstrate a film author’s acute aesthetic sensibility through a highly original cinematic rendering of the sources. The first two films, closely examined in this book, offer a personal, purposefully stylized vision of the Middle Ages, as though Pasolini were dreaming Boccaccio’s and Chaucer’s texts through the filter of his “heretic” consciousness. The unusual poetic visualization of the source works, which could be described as irreverent cinematic homage, has the potential to renew the traditional reading of such literature. This book shows how cinema becomes an alternative form of storytelling. It first studies the two films in detail, putting them in perspective within the trilogy. Next it interprets them, recounting misinterpretations and expounding upon Pasolini’s ideological perception, and defends the oft-criticized adaptations. Finally, it discusses how the films represent innovation over strict adaptation. Appendices offer charts with information on the narrative structures of the films and the correspondences between them.

Descrizione libro McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Italian film director Pier Paolo Pasolini s trilogy of life, a series of three cinematic adaptations of medieval texts, includes The Decameron (1970), The Canterbury Tales (1971) and Arabian Nights (1973). Much more than simple retellings, the films demonstrate a modern auteur s purposefully idealized and stylized vision of the period, and each uniquely comments on narrativity within the texts. In The Decameron and The Canterbury Tales , Pasolini himself plays the artist Giotto and Geoffrey Chaucer, respectively, affording him positions of considerable narrative power in the films. As Giotto suggests at the end of The Decameron , Pasolini s films dream the original texts, offering his own poetic visualization, in a way that is meant to revive the reading of his sources through irreverent cinematic homage. This book explores Pasolini s visualized narrative in the first two films of the trilogy, showing how film becomes an alternative form of storytelling that allows auteurs like Pasolini to adapt, in varying degrees of faith, classic sources while displaying new artistic visions. The book first studies the two films in detail and puts them in perspective within the trilogy. Next, it interprets both films from a wider perspective, recounting misinterpretations, expounding upon Pasolini s ideological vision, and defending the oft-criticized adaptations. Finally, the conclusion discusses how the films represent innovation over strict adaptation, and considers the paradox of rendering, non-realistically, the essence of original works. Appendices offer charts with information on the narrative structures of the films and the correspondences between them. A bibliography and a Pasolini filmography are included.
