Fragments : poems, intimate notes, letters by Marilyn Monroe( Book )
11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 891 libraries worldwide
Marilyn Monroe's image is so universal that we can't help but believe that we know all there is to know of her. Every word and gesture made headlines and garnered controversy. Her serious gifts as an actrress were sometimes eclipsed by her notoriety, and the way the camera fell helplessly in love with her. But what of the other Marilyn? Beyond the headlines, and the too familiar stories of heartbreak and desolation, was a woman far more curious, searching, and hopeful than the one the world got to know. Even as Hollywood studios tried to mold and suppress her, Marilyn never lost her insight, her passion, and her humor. To confront the mounting difficulties of her life, she wrote. Now, for the first time, we can meet this private Marilyn and get to know her in a way we never have before. This work is a collection of written artifacts, notes to herself, letters, even poems, in Marilyn's own handwriting, never before published, along with rarely seen intimate photos. These bits of text, jotted in notebooks, typed on paper, or written on hotel letterhead, reveal a woman who loved deeply and strove to perfect her craft. They show a Marilyn Monroe unsparing in her analysis of her own life, but also playful, funny, and impossibly charming. The easy grace and deceptive lightness that made her performances so memorable emerge on the page, as does the simmering tragedy that made her last appearances so heartbreaking. This work is one that will redefine one of the greatest stars of the twentieth century and which, nearly fifty years after her death, will definitively reveal Marilyn Monroe's humanity
The painted panorama by Bernard Comment( Book )
38 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 880 libraries worldwide
Aproximación histórica y teórica al panorama como forma de espectáculo, inventado en 1788, y cuyo apogeo tiene lugar en la Exposición Universal de 1900. Extensos lienzos circulares, representando escenas urbanas, de guerra o de viajes, se instalaban en rotondas construidas al efecto para ser contemplados desde una plataforma central, con el fin de crear una perfecta ilusión en los espectadores, que se creían realmente inmersos en el lugar representado. La relación entre el individuo y la realidad circundante conoce entonces una nueva lógica, en que el mundo se convierte en espectáculo y la imagen es sustituida por la experiencia
