Trade PB (B&W photographs) "Between 1927 and 1933, the journal Close Up presented itself as 'the only magazine devoted to film as an art.' Edited by Kenneth Macpherson with the novelist Bryher and the poet H.D., Close Up promised 'theory and analysis; no gossip.' This anthology makes available some of the liveliest and most important articles from Close Up. The writing is theoretically astute, politically incisive, open to ideas from psychoanalysis, and passionately committed to a 'pure cinema' and an international film culture separate from the theatrical entertainments produced by Hollywood and the British industry. A substantial introduction and commentary set Close Up in the context of a decisive period of change in the history of cinema. The editors also show how thinking about film shaped the contributions of women like H.D. and the novelist Dorothy Richardson to a new feminine literary aesthetic. Many articles and reviews by H.D. are included, as well as all the columns written by Richardson." . (Inventory #: 24042)
