Book Description

About the Author Jeremy Robinson has written many critical studies, including Steven Spielberg, Arthur Rimbaud, Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Luc Godard, and The Sacred Cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky, plus literary monographs on: Samuel Beckett; Thomas Hardy; Andr? Gide; Robert Graves; and Lawrence Durrell. ?It's amazing for me to see my work treated with such passion and respect. There is nothing resembling it in the U.S. in relation to my work.? ? Andrea Dworkin (on Andrea Dworkin) ? ?This model monograph - it is an exemplary job, and I'm very proud that he has accorded me a couple of mentions... The subject matter of his book is beautifully organised and dead on beam.? Lawrence Durrell (on The Light Eternal: A Study of J.M.W. Turner) ?? AUTHOR?S NOTE: I hope this book offers readers some new insights into the films of the incredible filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, so they can go back and enjoy them all over again. I have looked at all of the key research for this book, which was begun years ago. I have focussed mainly on the movies themselves, exploring each one in detail. The book also includes technical info on animation, a chapter on the animation industry in Japan, and comparisons between Miyazaki?s films and those in the West, including Walt Disney?s work. I have also included chapters on the output of Studio Ghibli, and also Isao Takahata, Miyazaki?s colleague. Read more
