Editorial Reviews

Review


Cornell's use of philosophy, literature, and cinematic theory makes this an intriguing (yet surprisingly accessible) work. Her weaving of plot summarization and critical analysis is elegant and seamless. Highly recommended.


No doubt many fans of Eastwood's directorial work will find additional reasons to examine his methods thanks to Cornell's thoughtful, thorough analysis.


Drucilla Cornell's powers of cultural analysis and critique are in rare form in this lucidly written and extraordinarily rich philosophical portrait of one of Hollywood's most brilliant and often controversial icon of masculinity. The work inspires reflection not only on the meaning of masculinity in the world of cinematic fantasy, a world with a troubled history of female and racial subordination premised both on its presence in American society and its cultivation and fomentation as imagined by directorial license, but also on struggles for humanistic portraits of human possibility in a clearly less than ideal world. It's a triumph in new critical theory and philosophical analysis of contemporary culture. Bravo!-Lewis Ricardo Gordon

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on September 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
If you ask someone to name ten icons of manliness, there's a high chance that Clint Eastwood would be on that list. "Clint Eastwood and Issues of American Masculinity" is a study of what is viewed as manly in today's society using the film work of Clint Eastwood as a case study. Eastwood's career is decades long and as such, his career shifts the trending attitudes of manliness from the gun slinging cowboy to the grizzled grandfather. "Clint Eastwood and Issues of American Masculinity" is a fascinating read, highly recommended.
