Ulrike Ottinger the autobiography of art cinema by Laurence A Rickels ( )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since 1974, German filmmaker Ulrike Ottinger has created a substantial body of films that explore a world of difference defined by the tension and transfer between settled and nomadic ways of life. In many of her films, including Exile Shanghai, an experimental documentary about the Jews of Shanghai, and Joan of Arc of Mongolia, in which passengers on the Trans-Siberian Express are abducted by Mongolian bandits, she also probes the encounter with the other, whether exotic or simply unpredictable. In Ulrike Ottinger Laurence A. Rickels offers a series of sensitive and original analyses of Ottin
The vampire lectures by Laurence A Rickels ( Book )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bela Lugosi may--as the eighties gothic rock band Bauhaus sang--be dead, but the vampire lives on. A nightmarish figure dwelling somewhere between genuine terror and high camp, a morbid repository for the psychic projections of diverse cultures, an endlessly recyclable mass-media icon, the vampire is an enduring object of fascination, fear, ridicule, and reverence. In The Vampire Lectures, Laurence A. Rickels sifts through the rich mythology of vampirism, from medieval folklore to Marilyn Manson, to explore the profound and unconscious appeal of the undead

Milton's Paradise Lost. Goethe's Faust. Aaron Spelling's Satan's School for Girls? Laurence A. Rickels scours the canon and pop culture in this all-encompassing study on the Devil. Continuing the work he began in his influential book The Vampire Lectures, Rickels returns with his trademark wit and encyclopedic knowledge to go mano a mano with the Prince of Darkness himself. Revealing our astonishing obsession with Satan in his many forms, Rickels guides us on an entertaining and enlightening journey down the darkest corridors that film, music, folklore, theater, and literature have ever offere
Aberrations of mourning by Laurence A Rickels ( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
& Quot;Aberrations of Mourning," originally published in 1988, is the long unavailable first book in Laurence A. Rickels's "unmourning" trilogy, followed by "The Case of California" and "Nazi Psychoanalysis.". Rickels studies mourning and melancholia within and around psychoanalysis, analyzing the writings of such thinkers as Freud, Nietzsche, Lessing, Heinse, Artaud, Keller, Stifter, Kafka, and Kraus. Rickels maintains that we must shift the way we read literature, philosophy, and psychoanalysis to go beyond traditional Oedipal structures. "Aberrations o
I think I am : Philip K. Dick by Laurence A Rickels ( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For years, noted writer Laurence A. Rickels often found himself compared to novelist Philip K. Dick--though in fact Rickels had never read any of the science fiction writer's work. When he finally read his first Philip K. Dick novel, while researching for his recent book The Devil Notebooks, it prompted a prolonged immersion in Dick's writing as well as a recognition of Rickels's own long-documented intellectual pursuits. The result of this engagement is I Think I Am: Philip K. Dick, a profound thought experiment that charts the wide relevance of the pulp sci-fi author and paranoid visionary
