♥ Book Title : Frances Farmer
☯ Full Synopsis : "Previous biographies of American actress Frances Farmer (1913–1970) have downplayed her professional achievements to emphasize her turbulent personal life, including several police arrests and repeated confinements in a state mental hospital. By focusing upon her acting career, this book endeavors to restore her position as a significant Hollywood player of the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. An analysis of her film, radio and television work is offered, as well as assessments of the three Frances Farmer biopics and the documentaries in which she is featured. Each of her 16 films receives a chapter-length discussion. A very lengthy biographical chapter is included."Article| Peter Shelley| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Las fotografías de Frances Farmer
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Iván Thays es uno de los más intersantes escritores que ha aparecido en América Latina en años recientes". Mario Vargas Llosa. Aparecido en 1992, Las fotografías de Frances Farmer significó la irrupción de Iván Thays en la narrativa peruana. Este conjunto de cuentos, entrelazados por referencias más o menos veladas a la mítica actriz, se sirven de ella como sombra o filtro para presentar una mirada melancólica y espectral hacia tópicos que Thays luego desarrollaría en su obra, como el desplazamiento, la nostalgia, la soledad o cierta forma de sobrellevar la tristeza."Article| Iván Thays| Statement ..."

A few made only a single movie, others hundreds. Each entry includes highlights of the performer's career, a list of stage appearances and a filmography."Article| Roy Liebman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Heroines
☯ Full Synopsis : "I am beginning to realize that taking the self out of our essays is a form of repression. Taking the self out feels like obeying a gag order--pretending an objectivity where there is nothing objective about the experience of confronting and engaging with and swooning over literature." -- from "Heroines "On the last day of December, 2009 Kate Zambreno began a blog called " Frances Farmer Is My Sister," arising from her obsession with the female modernists and her recent transplantation to Akron, Ohio, where her husband held a university job. Widely reposted, Zambreno's blog became an outlet for her highly informed and passionate rants about the fates of the modernist "wives and mistresses." In her blog entries, Zambreno reclaimed the traditionally pathologized biographies of Vivienne Eliot, Jane Bowles, Jean Rhys, and Zelda Fitzgerald: writers and artists themselves who served as male writers' muses only to end their lives silenced, erased, and institutionalized. Over the course of two years, "Frances Farmer Is My Sister "helped create a community where today's "toxic girls" could devise a new feminist discourse, writing in the margins and developing an alternative canon. In "Heroines," Zambreno extends the polemic begun on her blog into a dazzling, original work of literary scholarship. Combing theories that have dictated what literature should be and who is allowed to write it--from T. S. Eliot's New Criticism to the writings of such mid-century intellectuals as Elizabeth Hardwick and Mary McCarthy to the occasional "girl-on-girl crime" of the Second Wave of feminism--she traces the genesis of a cultural template that consistently exiles female experience to the realm of the "minor," and diagnoses women for transgressing social bounds. "ANXIETY: When she experiences it, it's pathological," writes Zambreno. "When he does, it's existential." By advancing the Girl-As-Philosopher, Zambreno reinvents feminism for her generation while providing a model for a newly subjectivized criticism."Article| Kate Zambreno| Statement ..."
