Contents for Beowulf on Film
According to WorldCat here are the contents for Haydock and Risden's Beowulf on Film: Adaptations and Variations due out from McFarland this fall:
Introduction-a Freud complex and the problem of Beowulf in film / E.L. Risden --
Film theory, the sister arts tradition and the cinematic Beowulf / Nickolas Haydock --
The cinematic commoditization of Beowulf: The serial fetishizing of a hero / E.L. Risden --
Making sacrifices / Nickolas Haydock --
The hero, the mad male Id, and a feminist Beowulf: the sexualizing of an Epic / E.L. Risden --
Dragon, where art thou? "othering" in Beowulf films / E.L. Risden --
Meat puzzles: Beowulf and the horror film / Nickolas Haydock --
Our man Beowulf: Bowra, Ker, and the contemporary struggle with heroism / E.L. Risden --
Conclusion-the postmodern Beowulf / Nickolas Haydock.
In addition, in terms of cataloging, the book is listed solely as Beowulf -- Film adaptations; this is unfortunate, for it fails to link to the larger range of scholarship on medievalisms on screen.
