This new collection by master essayist Phillip Lopate is ideal for courses in criticism and the essay, and as a reader for expository writing courses centered around a particular theme. The theme is movies, and over the past 25 years, tackling subjects ranging from Visconti to Jerry Lewis, from the first New York Film Festival to the 32nd, Lopate has made film his most cherished and dazzling subject. Totally, Tenderly, Tragically collects—for the first time—the very best of these essays.
