| Columbia UP | New from Michel Chion - Words on Screen

New from Columbia University Press




Michel Chion
Edited and translated by Claudia Gorbman

Following his work on sound in film in Audio-Vision and Film, a Sound Art, Words on Screen is Michel Chion's survey of everything the seventh art gives us to read on screen. Throughout this examination, Chion delves into the multitude of roles that words on screen play: how they can generate narrative, be torn up or consumed but still remain in the viewer's consciousness, take on symbolic dimensions, and bear every possible relation to cinematic space.

"Words On Screen offers a radically new understanding of cinema. By concentrating on the written word in a very wide variety of films, Chion turns what in the past has always been no more than a passing concern into a full-fledged reading strategy, applicable to films of all periods and types. I never could have imagined that Chion would once again create an entirely new approach to cinema."-Rick Altman, author of A Theory of Narrative
