Melodrama and Mimesis

Film and Cinema Spectatorship provides a clear and
wide-ranging introduction to different debates and traditions of
viewing cinema. In this new book, Jan Campbell offers a
comprehensive account of the different theoretical perspectives on
film and cinema spectatorship, situating these in their cultural
and historical contexts. Among the perspectives covered are those
of feminism, modernism and cultural studies, with chapters
dedicated to important topics such as early film, stars and film
aesthetics. Campbell also provides accessible explorations of the
importance of key themes to film and cinema spectatorship, such as
mimesis, melodrama, performance and time.

The timely and comprehensive text will be essential reading for
anyone interested in debates on film theory, psychoanalysis and
film, and the history of cinema. This book will be of special
interest to students of film studies, media studies and cultural
studies.
