"Through the Looking-Glass", and What Alice Found There is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May, the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on 4 November. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on.

Die Serie ist mittlerweile zum zentralen Element der Gegenwartskultur geworden. Damit hat sie dem Fernsehen, das einst belächeltes und herabgewertetes Medium war, kulturelle Bedeutung und im „Quality TV“ eine Rolle als künstlerische Leistung verschafft.Der vorliegende Band steht auf der Basis dieser Entwicklung. Er möchte nachzeichnen, in welchem Netz von Akteuren und deren aufeinander bezogenen Erwartungen die US-Serie und ihre künstlerische Anerkennung aufkommen. Dabei rückt er die Prozesse in den Vordergrund, in denen die Produktion unterstellen muss, was wirtschaftliche Abnehmer, Regulierungsbehörden und Publikum wahrscheinlich tun werden und zeigt auf, wie diese Akteure die Produktion in unterschiedlichen wirtschaftlichen Kontexten beurteilen und beeinflussen. Anhand zeitgenössischer Kult(ur)serien wird so die Entwicklung nachgezeichnet, die letztendlich zur modernen Form des seriellen Erzählens geführt hat.An die Stelle von Inhaltsanalysen, wie sie in der Fernsehforschung vermehrt aufgekommen sind, und Rezeptionsstudien, die die Erforschung von Medieninhalten zunehmend in den Raum des aufeinander bezogenen Handelns von Interpretationsgemeinschaften überführt haben, tritt hier eine Erforschung des „looking-glass-Fernsehens“, die zum Verständnis der Strukturen beitragen möchte, in denen modernes Serienfernsehen gemacht wird.

The Thousand and One Nights was reborn into an alien environment in 1704, its signs being received in a radically different way from their original meanings. Works of literature change as people and cultures who read them change. This study explores the Nights with reference to this view of literature.

When you look at fine connections, it's hard to say exactly what relation "Alice in Wonderland" has to this book, "Through the Looking-Glass," Oh, it's plainly the same girl, though she seems older, here, and some characters (like Tweedledum and Tweedledee) appear in both. But she doesn't get there the same way, and doesn't refer to her adventures in Wonderland so much as once. Oh well: maybe it's all a dream and she can't remember the last one -- or maybe the magic through the Looking-Glass has hold of her, just as it has hold of Humpty Dumpty, or the Walrus and the Carpenter.

Polish cinema has produced some of Europe's finest directors, such as Krzysztof Kie'slowski, Roman Polanski, Andrzej Wajda, and Krzysztof Zanussi, but little is known about its origins at the turn of the twentieth century. In spite of poor technical quality, cinema was popular with the many ethnic groups in partition-era Poland. Filmmakers, producers, and intellectuals recognized the artistic potential of cinema, most notably the philosopher and avant-garde novelist Karol Irzykowski, who in 1922 wrote The Tenth Muse, a theoretical work of criticism of the new medium. In the early years of Polish cinema, films were shown in the cities and in smaller towns by traveling exhibitors. Sheila Skaff finds that an enduring appreciation for visual imagery is evident in every period of the history of cinema in Poland. She analyzes local film production, practices of spectatorship, clashes over language choice in intertitles, and the controversies surrounding the first synchronized sound experiments before World War I. Skaff discusses the creation of a national film industry in the newly independent country of the interwar years; silent cinema; the transition from silent to sound film, including the passionate debates in the press over the transition; and the first Polish and Yiddish "talkies." Yiddish films are among the most famous films in the interwar period, such as Michal Waszy'nski's Der dibuk in 1937, which depicted Jewish life and culture in Poland before the Holocaust. The Law of the Looking Glass places particular importance on conflicts in majority-minority relations in the region and the types of collaboration that led to important films such as Der dibuk.

A writer & CRITIC with a broad grasp of her subject, an acute eye for talent (and occasionally genius), and a sure prose style, Selma Lanes is our grande dame of children's literature. She wrote the definitive book on Maurice Sendak. She has contributed countless articles on the primary protagonists and players in the field, many published in her previous book, Down the Rabbit Hole. This new collection includes further essays on the masters she most admires: Sendak, Steig, Gorey, L. Frank Baum, Tomi Ungerer, Jack Keats, Margot Zemach, and one editor of genius, Ursula Nordstrom. What concerns Lanes most is the integration of text and image, the abilities of authors and artists of picture books to somehow change our perceptions. In a larger sense, she asks, What makes some children's books work and others fail? How does art for the young reflect, distort or create a social perspective? Earlier she observed, With the possible exception of advertising and film, no popular medium in our time has been as experimental, inventive, and simply alive as children's books. In the present atmosphere of mergers and corporate conglomerates that now define mainstream publishing, she wonders if this remains true. Is the field still dominated, as formerly, by a devoted cadre of geniuses able to spot and encourage talent, willing to take risks, and ferocious in their desire to bring children the best that authors and illustrators have to offer? This book provides her answers, as well as affectionate salutes to the writers and artists whose work deserves to be remembered.
