Format: Paperback
This collection of essays and the selected bibliography of about 130 entries is a unique collation of the scholarly conversations from various disciplines--literature, anthropology, psychology,popular culture--written in response to Brokeback Mountain. They offer of insight into the story itself as well as exploration of the strong, but hard-to-define responses, that the story evokes. Teachers of literature, theater, film, anthropology, sociology, and psychology are already using Brokeback Mountain for classroom study and discussion; they will find practical use for these authoritative studies. Non-academic readers will find the essays interesting, readable, and helpful in understanding with their own responses to the story.

Well done review by several scholars on Brokeback Mountain, the movie, the screenplay, and the short story. Each review is well done, tho I am sure readers will take exception to some; however, different viewpoints help w/perceptions I feel. For those who want a more in depth "study" of Brokeback Mtn on many levels (cultural, artistic, aesthetic) this book is a must!

Brokeback Mountain is a powerful and revealing short story. For one who was brought to tears by the story of Brokeback Mountain, this book goes into deep detail regarding the circumstances of the lives of the characters and the time and place of its occurance. This is a statement for not just tolerance but full acceptance.

I was interested in an essay approach to Brokeback Mountain because most people responded to the movie in emotional ways;love it or hate it.These essays are unemotional and objective and interesting ,but I found myself floundering in the (to me)very learned terminology.

Format: Paperback
This film has taught me alot about loving someone and getting that love back. It does not matter who you are, we all love the same. I have watched this movie about 50 times as of today and I will still watch it again and again and cry at the end wach time. It woke me up and made me realize what I was missing in my life. I want that kind of love that they have for each other. I just can't say enough about the movie and the wonderful love story that it delivers. I wish everyone could see this movie to me it is the best of the best love stories. I really have a hard time expressing my thoughts and feelings, because it moves me so much and hurts me to realize when you love someone and can't be together.I have had this happen in my life and it is very hard to do. I love the soundtrack it stays in my cd player.
