Alternating theoretical essays with case studies, Imaginary Films in Literature focuses on a particular and suggestive form of ekphrasis: the description of imaginary, non-existent movies.
Since cinema is a composite language, describing a film is a complex challenge for critics and writers, and greatly differs from the ancient and successful genre of the ekphrasis, the literary description of a visual work of art. "Imaginary Films in Literature" deals with a specific and significant case within this broad category: the description of imaginary, non-existent films – a practice that is more widespread than one might expect, especially in North American postmodern fiction. Along with theoretical contributions, the book includes the analyses of some case studies focusing on the borders between the visual and the literary, intermedial practices of hybridization, the limits of representation, and other related notions such as “memory”, “fragmentation”, “desire”, “genre”, “authorship”, and “censorship”.
