"Timely, relevant, and absolutely central to what is going on in so many

the most appropriate but also the most stimulating and exciting of
contributors." <Linda Hutcheon, author of A Theory of Adaptation
The work of Richard Wagner is a continuing source of artistic inspiration
and ideological controversy in literature, philosophy, and music, as well as
cinema. In Wagner and Cinema, a diverse group of established and emerging
scholars examines Wagner's influence on cinema from the silent era to the
present. The essays in this collection engage in a critical dialogue with
existing studies<extending and renovating current theories related to the
topic<and propose unexplored topics and new methodological perspectives. The
contributors discuss films ranging from the 1913 biopic of Wagner to Ridley
Scottıs Gladiator, with essays on silent cinema, film scoring, Wagner in
Hollywood, German cinema, and Wagner beyond the soundtrack.
