Determination of pH; theory and practice by Roger G Bates( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In portraying the rise and fall, in eighteenth century Ireland and England, of Barry Lyndon - an adventurer-gambler, a cad and a romantic idealist - Kubrick departs from Thackeray's picaresque novel in scope and tone. The first person narrator of the novel gives way in the film to the third person who assumes a good deal of the storytelling function, adding to the sense of detachment and abstraction typical of Kubrick. The way that this film polarised the critics suggests that it may hold a key to his oeuvre. Enervating pictorialism or a stately meditation upon the trappings of cultural ritual that we call civilisation? The painterly tableaux suggest the 'otherness' of a past era - a world as alien as that of 2001 - in a way matched by few other period films
