This book is moving around two intricately interwoven topics, the history of film studies and the failed scholarly reception (or perhaps just failed reception) of Brian De Palma's films, this book asks troubling, provocative questions not only about what and how De Palma's films mean in the cultural and scholarly imaginary, but about the causal relationship of politics to taste (in this sense it's a much needed updating of Bourdieu's work) and about a certain un-ease at the heart of film studies itself. Further, this book claims to provide an authoritative, onestop guide to the basic facts abo.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, University of Stuttgart, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Bret Easton Ellis’American psychohas been a highly controversial book. Many critics condemned this novel before it had been published so Ellis even had to search for a new publishing company. The indignation atAmerican psychohad been so fierce, it verged on hysteria and some interest groups (feminist and religious groups for instance) agitated against the author and his work1. The main reason why critics reacted that outraged was the explicit and detailed description of violence in this book2. In this paper I will discuss the appearence of violence inAmerican psycho.But first I want to create a picture of social phenomena in the USA of the 80’s as they are described in the novel, in order to provide the setting, the atmosphere in which the violence takes place. This will help to give an opinion of this violence and to interpret it. Then I will discuss how violence is presented in the text. In the fourth

"Tanner deals with the central question of all narrative texts: how the reader is manipulated into empathy or distance by the text.... This study... is the sort that needs to be redone in every classroom and by every mature reader.... Tanner offers provocative and useful discussions of rape and torture... " -- Choice "This thoughtful and disturbing book raises serious questions about 'the consequences... of reading representations of rape and torture.' " -- American Literature "In this incisive exploration of twentieth-century novels, art, and ads, Laura Tanner explains the mechanisms by which reader and viewer are implicated in violence. Equally effective as a challenge to textual assault is the grace and gentleness of Tanner's own prose. Intimate Violence signals the emergence of an astute and humane critical voice." -- Wendy Steiner Through an examination of such notorious works as The White Hotel and American Psycho, Laura Tanner leads us in a disturbing exploration of the reader's complicity with fictional depictions of intimate violence.

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis was originally dismissed as flippant and distasteful because critics focused on the novel's excessive violence, misogyny, and shallow characters. The book remains controversial to this day, though later critics have shed light on the novel as a satirical representation of Wall Street in the late 1980s. In this thesis, I explore the ways in which Ellis satirizes Patrick Bateman and his society through dialogue, physical behavior, and relationships with each other. I argue that Patrick is essentially a victim of the possessive, technologically obsessed, patriarchal culture, ignored by others despite his cries for attention. In addition, I analyze specific passages in order to determine whether or not the novel can provoke sympathy for Patrick from the reader. Ultimately, I assert that American Psycho is a satire that attempts to expand traditional boundaries by including sympathy.
