Book Description

28 Nov 2012 The New Middle Ages
The Middle Ages depicted in Walt Disney movies have come, for many, to figure as the Middle Ages, forming the earliest visions of the medieval past for much of the contemporary western (and increasingly eastern) imaginary. The essayists of The Disney Middle Ages explore Disney's mediation and re-creation of a fairy-tale and fantasy past, not to lament its exploitation of the Middle Ages for corporate ends, but to examine how and why these medieval visions prove so readily adaptable to themed entertainments many centuries after their creation.

Product Description

Review

"This collection of fourteen essays provides a balanced and often quite witty assessment of Disney's films, TV shows, marketing strategies, theme parks, personal philosophies, pedagogy, social and political practices of Walt Disney and his Corporate Legacy . . . The collection speaks well to a scholarly audience, while, at the same time, addressing intelligently a broader audience that includes virtually anyone who has ever seen a Disney movie or TV program or been to a theme park  - that is, about everyone who has grown up in America or elsewhere. The bibliography is excellent."  - Medievally Speaking

5.0 out of 5 stars V-E-R-Y interesting. 10 Mar 2014

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a bona fide Disney addict. But I have read many books on the not so magical side of Disney. This one is particularly uncomfortable but not in a terrible way. It's a little hard reading at times. I like content where I have to research word meanings, but this one will get you ready for a crossword puzzle challenge. Anyway, a really good book.
