It provides a detailed analyses of sixteen major films, illuminating the relations between Renaissance visions and modern re-visions, the parallels of poetic and cinematic imagery, and the quests of directors for significant cinematic style. Dramatically illustrated by over one hundred film photographs. Originally published by Indiana University Press in 1977.
