The presence of the feminine in film.


The presence of the feminine in film.

Apperson, Virginia and John Beebe.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing


271 pages




Jungian analysts Apperson in Atlanta and Beebe in San Francisco trade essays on the manifestation of the feminine principle--not just women--in a number of movies. Their perspectives are finding the feminine in film, at risk, fighting back, opposing personality and trickster, strength, anima figures, soul of the world, and emotion. Among the movies are Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, Pride and Prejudice, Monsoon Wedding, and Letter from an Unknown Woman.
