Editorial Reviews


Winner of the 2000 Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize, Italian Literary Studies

"Marrone provides detailed analyses of Cavani's films within the framework of the history of ideas and convincingly argues for the depth and seriousness of the director's art. . . . Informed by interviews with Cavani and materials from the director's own archives, this title is recommended for all readers."--Choice

From the Inside Flap

"The Gaze and the Labyrinth will become the benchmark for any further work on Liliana Cavani. Gaetana Marrone is among the first to put the entire subject of Cavani's cinema into order, and does so in a way that is clear, lucid, and pleasing. This is a book built upon many years of careful research--research that is marked by a solid understanding of Italian culture, language, and European intellectual history."--Peter Bondanella, Indiana University

"This is the definitive work in English on Liliana Cavani, whose rightful place in the ranks of Italian cinematic auteurs is hereby critically established. The prodigious learning that Gaetana Marrone brings to this study shows the cultural and technical richness of cinema in general and of Italian art cinema in particular, with Liliana Cavani as one of its foremost practitioners. Marrone's total immersion in the subject produces a critical study from within, at once deeply engaged in all aspects of the filmography, and intellectually rigorous in its approach."--Millicent Marcus, University of Pennsylvania
