Lukácsian film theory and cinema

A study of Georg Lukács' writing on film 1913-1971

Ian Aitken

Published by Manchester University Press

  • It is the first analysis, but more importantly, the first English translation of Lukács' major writing on film
  • Previously, attempts to understand Lukács' relevance to film studies have depended entirely on the literary writings, which has led to serious misunderstandings
  • The book will overturn previous and existing understandings of Lukács within the field of film studies
  • The first, and only, work in English to analyse, translate and present all of Georg Lukács writings on film
