Product description


"Matthew Solomon ... deserves much credit for making the point that the study of an individual film by a range of scholars ought to find a larger place among the more traditional auteur and genre studies." -- Film History

"This superbly conceived collection enhances understanding of a keystone film ... Excellent early-cinema scholars ... illuminate [Méliès's] articulate artistic credo and his meticulous and inventive practice of the new art form ... A necessary addition to comprehensive film collections." -- CHOICE

"This is a welcome addition to the field of early film history. It does that wonderful thing that the best film histories do--it points out the relevance of its subject to areas beyond cinema studies. In this case the focus on one filmmaker affords a deeper understanding of not only Méliès and the context of his work, but also its impact on aesthetic and critical debates ranging from the avant-garde of the early twentieth century to those concerning technology and vision in the twenty-first century." -- Michael Hammond, author of The Big Show: British Cinema Culture in the Great War, 1914-1918

"While focusing on A Trip to the Moon, the book highlights such diverse issues as the film's artistic sources, its historical reception over time, its place within the career of Méliès, and its relation to other works of cinema." -- Lucy Fischer, author of Designing Women: Cinema, Art Deco, and the Female Form
