9780786478071: Time Travel in Popular Media Essays on Film, Television, Literature and Video Games

In recent years numerous films, television series, comic books, graphic novels and video games have featured time travel narratives, with characters jumping backward, forward and laterally through time. No rules govern time travel in these stories. Some characters move by machine, some by magic, others by unexplained means. Sometime travelers can alter the timeline, while others are prevented from causing temporal aberrations. The fluid forms of imagined time travel have fascinated audiences and prompted debate since at least the 19th century. What is behind our fascination with time travel? What does it mean to be out of one's own era? How do different media tell these stories and what does this reveal about the media's relationship to time? This collection of new essays--the first to address time travel across a range of media--answers these questions by locating time travel narratives within their cultural, historical and philosophical contexts. Texts discussed include Doctor Who, The Terminator, The Georgian House, Save the Date, Back to the Future, Inception, Source Code and others.

Descrizione libro McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Something has happened to time. In recent years the media have produced numerous films, television series, comic books, graphic novels and videogames that bend, shatter and rebuild the clock. Characters slip backwards, jump forwards and slide sideways in time more than ever before. What caused this fascination with time travel? What does it mean to be out of one s own era? How do different media formats tell these stories and what does this reveal about their relationship to time itself? This book, the first to address the genre across a range of media, responds to these questions by locating time travel narratives within their cultural, historical and philosophical contexts. From well-known classics (Doctor Who and The Terminator) to little-known gems (The Georgian House and Save the Date), and from major American movies (Back to the Future, Inception and Source Code) to indie games (Braid) and Italian comedy cinema (Superfantozzi), the texts discussed represent a broad cross-section of the genre. Tracing time travel from its roots in antiquity and fairytales to the present day, the voices present in this collection make an important contribution to emerging debates about the stories we tell ourselves of falling through the cracks of time.
