At the Limit of Breath: Poems on the Films of Jean-Luc Godard (Robert Kroetsch Series)


"I sought after this to be a story. So ultimately Jean-Luc went the entire approach: each line within the script a citation from elsewhere. each blessed line. Love does not die. it truly is those who die. Love simply is going away." -from "NOUVELLE imprecise / New Wave (1990)" Stephen Scobie celebrates "the maximum movie director of his age" with poetry exploring forty four of Godard's motion pictures. refined but profound unities play from poem to poem. Characters, destinations, photos, and the beneficiant use of citation jump-cut and recur to ship the mind's eye reeling throughout the greater works of either artists. Readers may be seduced to linger in the writing and inspired to hunt past, to Godard's personal oeuvre. The booklet is sharply anticipated and thoroughly cadenced which will pride readers who will not be conversant in Godard's motion pictures. these already accustomed to Godard's paintings will locate on the restrict of breath a so much lucrative event.
