Über dieses Buch

The Modernist Screenplay explores the film screenplay as a genre of modernist literature. It connects the history of screenwriting for silent film to the history of literary modernism in France, Germany, and Russia. At the same time, the book considers how the screenplay responded to the modernist crisis of reason, confronted mimetic representation, and sought to overcome the modernist mistrust of language with the help of rhythm. From the silent film projects of Bertolt Brecht, to the screenwriting of Sergei Eisenstein and the poetic scripts of the surrealists, The Modernist Screenplay offers a new angle on the relationship between film and literature. Based on the example of modernist screenwriting, the book proposes a pluralistic approach to screenplays, an approach that sees film scripts both as texts embedded in film production and as literary works in their own right. As a result, the sheer variety of different and experimental ways to tell stories in screenplays comes to light. The Modernist Screenplay explores how the earliest kind of experimental screenplays—the modernist screenplays—challenged normative ideas about the nature of filmmaking, the nature of literary writing, and the borders between the two.

Stimmen zum Buch

“Ksenofontova’s The Modernist Screenplay explores the complex relationship between literature and screenwriting. By examining the classical literary avant-garde of the 1920s and looking at how it changed the approach to both film and literature, she is able to revise established notions and deliver new insights into the topic. Ksenofontova’s arguments are based on her meticulous research. This monograph has the potential to inspire significant discussions in screenwriting studies and comparative literature and will pave the way for a very welcome new voice and position in the field.” (Claus Tieber, Principle Investigator of several research projects at the University of Vienna and former chair of the Screenwriting Research Network)
