The World of Poldark Book Excerpt:

Emma Marriott's The World of Poldark explores the characters, the compelling stories and the era that Winston Graham - and the television series - set out to recreate, the England that Ross Poldark returned to from the American War of Independence. England, and especially Cornwall, was then marked by social unrest and a deep division between rich and poor. It was a place of tin mines and shipwrecks, of new money versus old, of harsh justice and great kindness. And, above all, it was a place that inspired Winston Graham's beloved novels. Amid the turmoil of eighteenth-century Cornwall, Ross comes back to a home in ruins, his father dead and his childhood sweetheart engaged to another - his own heart as battered as the country around him. Experience the great houses and the glorious landscapes and follow the cast of characters as their stories play out against the backdrop of Cornwall's wild beauty, through interviews with the actors, behind the scenes insights and in-depth information on costumes, props and locations. Packed full of behind the scenes photographs, The World of Poldark is the ultimate guide to the popular series.

Poldark s Cornwall Book Excerpt:

Are you longing to know where your favourite scenes in Poldark were filmed? Or discover the secrets behind the derelict mines and perfect, unspoiled beaches? Pitkin’s latest addition to the Film Locations series allows you the inside knowledge to go behind the scenes and follow in the footsteps of Ross and Demelza. Travel back in time and join them along the windswept cliffs, rugged coastline and untouched, pristine beaches. From Padstow to the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall takes centre stage, providing the breath-taking backdrop that brings the series to life. The latest awarding-winning adaptation of Winston Graham’s Poldark, produced by the BBC, has captured the hearts of millions of viewers worldwide. As the third series returns to our screens this summer, and with a forth series underway, tourists from all over the globe are flocking to the deepest corners of the UK’s southwestern tip. Over the last three years the series has brought the region’s rich heritage back to life, with tales of smugglers, shipwrecks and the secrets of the mines gripping viewer’s imaginations. Visit the Poldark family mines at Agnes Head or Levant Mine, a World Heritage Site. Gallop along the clifftops of Chapel Porth, and learn of famous shipwrecks at Gunwalloe. If it’s the glistening, azur waters you’re after, don’t miss Holywell Bay, Cornwall’s largest stretch of coastline, which becomes the Warleggans private beach in series two. Cornwall has been an inspiration for writer’s, film directors and artists alike for centuries, and Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza) sums up its magic. “So much of the piece came alive when we were filming in Cornwall and everyone found their character in the outdoors." Britain’s best kept secret is yours to enjoy.

Poldark s Cornwall Book Excerpt:

A lavishly illustrated companion to Winston Graham's beloved Poldark novels, reissued to coincide with the BBC series based on the novels. Graham's saga of Cornish life in the eighteenth century has enthralled readers throughout the world for seventy years and the wild landscapes that inspired the novels have - even today - remained relatively unchanged. Cornwall then was a perilous world of pirates and shipwrecks: of rugged coast and mysterious smugglers' coves, of windswept moors and picturesque villages such as Boscastle and Port Quin, and of beaches, tin mines and churches. With an introduction by Winston Graham's son, Andrew, and illustrated with stunning photographs, Poldark's Cornwall is a glorious evocation of the land of beauty, excitement, romance and imagination that Graham loved so well.

Women s Music for the Screen Book Excerpt:

Women’s Music for the Screen: Diverse Narratives in Sound shines a long-overdue light on the works and lives of female-identifying screen composers. Bringing together composer profiles, exclusive interview excerpts, and industry case studies, this volume showcases their achievements and reflects on the systemic gender biases women have faced in an industry that has long excluded them. Across 16 essays, an international array of contributors present a wealth of research data, biographical content, and musical analysis of film, television, and video game scores to understand how the industry excludes women, the consequences of these deficits, and why such inequities persist – and to document women’s rich contributions to screen music in diverse styles and genres. The chapters amplify the voices of women composers including Bebe Barron, Delia Derbyshire, Wendy Carlos, Anne Dudley, Rachel Portman, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Mica Levi, Winifred Phillips, and more. From the mid-twentieth century to the present, and from classic Hollywood scores to pioneering electronic music, these are the stories and achievements of the women who have managed to forge successful careers in a male-dominated arena. Suitable for researchers, educators, and students alike, Women’s Music for the Screen urges the screen music industry to consider these sounds and stories in a way it hasn’t before: as voices that more accurately reflect the world we all share.

Conflicting Masculinities Book Excerpt:

Never before has period drama offered viewers such an assortment of complex male characters, from transported felons and syphilitic detectives to shell shocked soldiers and gangland criminals. Neo-Victorian Gothic fictions like Penny Dreadful represent masculinity at its darkest, Poldark and Outlander have refashioned the romantic hero and anti-heritage series like Peaky Blinders portray masculinity in crisis, at moments when the patriarchy was being bombarded by forces like World War I, the rise of first wave feminism and the breakdown of Empire. Scholars of film, media, literature and history explore the very different types of maleness offered by contemporary television and show how the intersection of class, race, history and masculinity in period dramas has come to hold such broad appeal to twenty-first-century audiences.

Representing the Eighteenth Century in Film and Television 2000 2015 Book Excerpt:

This book analyzes early twenty-first century film and television’s fascination with representing the Anglo-American eighteenth century. Grounded in cultural studies, film studies, and adaptation theory, the book examines how these works represented the eighteenth century to assuage anxieties about values, systems, and institutions at the start of a new millennium. The first two chapters reveal how films like Gulliver’s Travels (2010) or the remake of Poldark (2015) use history to establish the direct relationship between the eighteenth century and the twenty-first. The final chapters examine pairs of productions for how they address and legitimate different aspects of contemporary ideology such as attitudes toward race and gender, or the connection between technological and social progress.

Demelza Book Excerpt:

Demelza is the second book in Winston Graham's hugely popular Poldark series, which has become a television phenomenon starring Aidan Turner. Demelza Carne, the impoverished miner's daughter Ross Poldark rescued from a fairground rabble, is now his wife. But the events of these turbulent years test their marriage and their love. Demelza's efforts to adapt to the ways of the gentry – and her husband – bring her confusion and heartache, despite her joy in the birth of their first child. Ross begins a bitter struggle for the rights of the mining communities – and sows the seed of an enduring enmity with powerful George Warleggan. Demelza is followed by Jeremy Poldark, the third title in this blockbuster series set in 18th century Cornwall.
