Hitchcock's Films Revisited

Robin Wood


PUBLISHED: 31st May 2002
ISBN: 9780231126953
ANNOTATION:
When "Hitchcock's Films" was first published, it quickly became known as a new kind of book on film — one that came to be considered a necessary text in the Hitchcock bibliography. When Robin Wood returned to his writings on Hitchcock's films and published "Hitchcock's Films Revisited" in 1989, the multi-dimensional essays took on a new shape — one that was tempered by Wood's own development as a critic. This new revised edition of "Hitchcock's Films Revisited" includes a substantial new preface in which Wood reveals his personal history as a film scholar — including his coming out as a gay man, his views on his previous critical work, and how his writings, his love of film, and his personal life have remained deeply intertwined through the years. This revised edition includes all original eighteen essays and a new chapter on "Marnie" titled "Does Mark Cure Marnie? Or, 'You Freud, Me Hitchcock.'"
