The Classical Hollywood Cinema Twenty-Five Years Along

So we have ten objections listed. (Some find more violations, up to 27 of them; but many are these are based on arguments from silence - assumptions that something not recorded in the Gospel accounts did not happen.) Of these ten objections:

PANTOUM: A variant spelling of pantun (see below).

PERIPHRASIS (Grk. "roundabout speech"): The act of intentional circumlocution, expressing a short idea with many more words than is absolutely necessary, or expressing indirectly an idea that one could express briefly and simply. J.A. Cuddon cites an example the sentence, "Her olfactory system was suffering from a temporary inconvenience," instead of "her nose was blocked" (701). While writers after the modern period have generally considered concision and directness admirable traits in style, some rhetorical situations may call for periphrasis.

Some basic questionsHere is the opening of our book proposal.

Journalists and bloggers often complain about humanists, and the common theme is obscurity. Long sentences laced with jargon and theoretical gymnastics. Research topics of interest only to a small enough group of scholars to fit around a seminar table. And “useless.” So useless that the public ought not to subsidize students foolish enough to indulge their fascination with words, symbols, narratives, and paradoxes. Humanists—so the books and blog posts that assess higher education keep telling us—have sold their birthright for a mess of pottage. Once upon a time, humanists taught great texts and raised big questions. Their courses might have lacked a certain specificity, but they had a soul. And nobody worried in those days about whether those courses led to a job.

PICKUP SYLLABLE: Another term for the unstressed syllable in .

PERFECTING: In the Renaissance printing industry, the term "perfecting" refered to printing on the second side of a sheet of paper after the first side of that sheet had already been printed to make a double-sided copy. In the 1500s, printers would typically do the side of the sheet in the morning and the side in the afternoon or evening. By the 1700s, it became common to use two presses consecutively--one side done on the first press and the other side done on the second press.

To this we may add the following observation:

Unlike form and style, reception has occupied the attention of many researchersin the last few decades. Today I would suggest that we need some hypotheses abouthow concrete conditions of reception could influence the look and sound of thefilms. Theatre layout, screen size, and schedules of the showing day could wellbe important factors.

More specifically, The Classical Hollywood Cinema addressesfour questions:

John - by the Apostle; a kerygmatic and missionary presentation

Again, Rivkin's scenario is not quite the same as ours - but it does picture the entire Barabbas episode as part of a manipulation game by Pilate, which we agree that it was. Continuing:

The one red leaf, the last of its clan That dances as often as dance it can.

Navy Sailors who share her story with visitors from around the world?

But I frankly wonder what Mr. Still is thinking here. Palm leaves do not "bloom" - the flowers on palms do, and those may well not have been on the trees as Passover, but the branches and their leaves themselves, which were what was used on Palm Sunday, are available all year.

Why didn’t we discuss reception? We anticipatedthis query and in our preface we wrote:

The presumption is that Matthew (and Mark) reads events as follows:

Modern black autobiographies such as Richard Wright's (1945) and (1965) testify to the influence of the slave narrative on the first-person writing of post-World War II African Americans. Beginning with Margaret Walker's (1966) and extending through such contemporary novels as Ernest J. Gaines's (1971), Sherley Ann Williams's (1986), Toni Morrison's (1987), and Charles Johnson's (1990), the "neo-slave narrative" has become one of the most widely read and discussed forms of African American literature. These autobiographical and fictional descendants of the slave narrative confirm the continuing importance and vitality of its legacy: to probe the origins of psychological as well as social oppression and to critique the meaning of freedom for black and white Americans alike from the founding of the United States to the present day.
