A Structural Study of the Western. University of California Press, Although more than 35 years old, this remains an enormously significant and provocative book that deserves sustained consideration by anyone interested in the serious study of the history of film.
Will Wright undertakes a structural study of the westerns made by Hollywood from toconcentrating on the top moneymakers in the genre.
He treats westerns as the depiction of myth, occupying space between individual and societal norms. He notes that myth shifts in response to the social world in which it exists. As he explains it: He creates a typology of the western genre, emphasizing the development of four recurring plot structures that repeat themselves with variations throughout the history of the Western film: Western films have evolved through these plot structures, and Wright seeks to demonstrate a correlation between the films, their plot lines, and the larger society that embraced them.
Offering short plot synopses as examples, Wright then explores the structural meaning of these films. This is an important and provocative book. It has received both praise and criticism for its attempt to place the Western film into this rigid structural analysis.
There are good reasons to be skeptical of some of its ideas. There are also very good reasons to accept much of what Will Wright says in this challenging book.As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
