Description

This extensive collection offers a substantially complete retrospective of Stanley Cavell's previously uncollected writings on film. Cavell is the only major philosopher in the Anglo-American tradition who has made film a central concern of his work, and his work offers inspiration and new directions to the field of film studies. The essays and other writings in this volume, presented in the order of their composition, range from major theoretical statements and extended critical studies of individual films or filmmakers to occasional pieces, all of which illuminate Cavell's practice of philosophy as it has developed in the more than three decades since the publication of The World Viewed. All periods of Cavell's career are represented, from the 1970s to the present, and the book includes many previously unpublished essays written since the early 1990s. In his introduction, William Rothman provides a useful and eloquent overview of Cavell's work on film and his aims as a philosopher more generally.

EXCEPT FOR MINOR REVISIONS TOassure consistency of format, and the addition of a number of frame enlargements, I have not altered the writ-ings in this volume. Prénom:Marie” was originally published in Maryel Locke and Charles Warren, editors,Jean-Luc Godard’sHail Mary:Women and the Sacred in Film(Southern Illinois University Press, 1993); “Words of Welcome” appeared in Charles Warren, editor,Beyond Document(Wesleyan University Press, 1996), “After Half a Century” was the epilogue to Robert Warshow, The Immediate Experience: Movies, Comics, Theatre, and Other Aspects of Popular Culture(Cambridge and London: Harvard University Press, 2001). All are reprinted by permission of these publishers. I am grateful to Stanley Cavell for permission to include all the other materials in the present collection, for the unfailing support, encourage-ment, and friendship he has offered at every stage of this project, and for the inspiration his writing and teaching have provided to me—as to so many—over the years.
