The essays republished in this new edition of Laura Mulveys 1989 collection Visual and Other Pleasures reflect the high optimism of the Womens Movement in the 1970s, its engagement with Hollywood melodrama, psychoanalytic theory and avant-garde film. In an extensive newintroduction,Mulvey looks back at the origins of her groundbreaking article Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema (originally published in Screen in 1975) and reflects on its historical and autobiographical contexts.She reassessesher 1975 theories in the light of her more recent work on the impact of new technologies, particularly the digital, on film spectatorship.This edition also includes apreviously unpublished essayin which Mulveydiscusses images and narratives of the young modern woman of the 1920s, through examples of films made both in Hollywood and Europe, and looks at their relevance for feminist film theory.
