This cross-disciplinary volume, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Framed and Unframed, explores and complicates our understanding of Pasolini today, probing notions of otherness in his works, his media image, and his legacy. Over 40 years after his death Pier Paolo Pasolini continues to challenge and interest us, both in academic circles and in popular discourses. Today his films stand as lampposts of Italian cinematic production, his cinematic theories resonate broadly through academic circles, and his philosophical, essayistic, and journalistic writings-albeit relatively sparsely translated into other languages-are still widely influential. Pasolini has also become an image, a mascot, a face on tote bags, a graffiti image on walls, an adjective (pasolinian). The collected essays push us to consider and reconsider Pasolini, a thinker for the twenty-first century.

A study of the last three films by Pasolini (1922-75), and his earlier Decameron. Shows their debt to the paintings of Bruegel and Bosch and other medieval influences, and the films' relationship to each other, to others of his films, and to his poetry. Black-and-white stills and reproductions illustrate the resemblances. Canadian card order number: C95-931198-X. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
