Book Description Wayne State University Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Apu Trilogy is the fourth directorial monograph written by influential film critic Robin Wood and republished for a contemporary audience. Focusing on the famed trilogy from Indian director Satyajit Ray, Wood persuasively demonstrates his ability at detailed textual analysis, providing an impressively sustained reading that elucidates the complex view of life in the trilogy. Wood was one of our most insightful and committed film critics, championing films that explore the human condition. His analysis of The Apu Trilogy reveals and illuminates the films profoundly humanistic qualities with clarity and rigor, plumbing the psychological and emotional resonances that arise from Ray s delicate balance of performance, camerawork, and visual design. Wood was the first English language critic to write substantively about Ray s films, which made the original publication of his monograph on The Apu Trilogy unprecedented as well as impressive. Of late there has been a renewed interest in North America in the work of Satyajit Ray, yet no other critic has come close to equaling the scope and depth of Wood s analysis.In his introduction, originally published in 1971, Wood says Ray s work was met with indifference. In response, he offers possible reasons why this occurred, including social and cultural differences and the films slow pacing, which contemporary critics tended to associate with classical cinema. Wood notes Ray s admiration for Western film culture, including the Hollywood cinema and European directors, particularly Jean Renoir and his realist films. Assigning a chapter to each Pather Panchali (1955), Aparajito (1957) and The World of Apu (1959), Wood goes on to explore each film more thoroughly. One of the aspects of this book that is particularly rewarding is Wood s analytical approach to the trilogy as a whole, as well as detailed attention given to each of the three films. The book, with a new preface by Richard Lippe and foreword by Barry Keith Grant, functions as a masterclass on what constitutes an in-depth reading of a work and the use of critical tools that are relevant to such a task.Robin Wood s The Apu Trilogy offers an excellent account of evaluative criticism that will appeal to film scholars and students alike.
