Overview

Alfred Hitchcock remains the quintessential cinematic auteur - the director as hero. Fifty years of debate over his status as an obsessive and dictatorial artist has raised increasingly pressing questions about the relation between individual authorship, on the one hand, and contexts, influences, and collaborators, on the other. A Companion to Alfred Hitchcock authoritatively maps the body of work generated in response to the director and his films, compiling essays from some of the world's most noted scholars in the emerging field of Hitchcock studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In summation, A Companion to Hitchcock will be required reading for anyone with more than a passing interest in this director’s films."  (Cercles, 1 September 2014)

“Teachers and students alike will find much to keep themselves busy in A Companion to Alfred Hitchcock... at least until the next heavy-duty study of his work arrives.”  (Psychobabble200, 20 March 2014)

"A great resource for students of Hitchcock's films, craft, thought, influences, and aesthetics. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-and upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, faculty." (Choice, 1 November 2011)
