Derek Jarman

Rowland Wymer

Published by Manchester University Press

British Film Makers MUP

  • Gives detailed, original critical readings of Derek Jarman's eleven feature-length films, and argues that he occupies a major and influential place in European and world cinema
  • Emphasises the importance of renaissance art and literature and Jungian psychology in Jarman's work
  • Makes substantial use of Jarman's unpublished papers as well as published work
  • Argues that Jarman's work is aimed at a much wider audience than is often supposed - at anyone who is willing to make a journey in search of his or her self
  • Will be relevant to undergraduate and postgraduate students of British and European cinema, and anyone interested in the film as art form rather than commercial product
