Opis produktu

Arthur J. Pomeroy is Associate Professor of Classics at Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand.Arthur J. Pomeroy is Associate Professor of Classics at Victoria University of Wellington New Zealand.Depictions of the ancient world on the stage and in art have always competed with the reconstruction of the past by academics. The rise of cinema and television has heightened the difficulty in distinguishing between śelite and śpopular culture. On American TV Buffy the Vampire Slayer has incorporated aspects of the classical within the high school horror genre. In art cinema the films of Theo Angelopoulos seek to reclaim Greek myth from academia and claim its recognition as part of a living modern culture. Alexander the Great has been recreated in an animated Japanese television series not as the western conqueror who spread Hellenistic values through Asia but as a figure of destruction and renewal. Heroic male values may be reasserted in cinema as part of a conservative agenda that relies on the cultural capital of the past or subjected to humorous critique or feminist reinterpretation in TV series such as Hercules and Xena. By studying the multiple depictions of the ancient world on screen this book emphasizes its continuing importance for the reevaluation of the present.By studying the multiple depictions of the ancient world on screen this book reclaims Greek myth from academia and emphasises its importance for the reevaluation of the present.Depictions of the ancient world on the stage and in art have always competed with a scholarly approach to the reconstruction of the past.
