THE POETICS OF SLUMBERLAND: ANIMATED SPIRITS AND THE ANIMATING SPIRIT. Scott Bukatman. University of California Press, Berkeley, 2012. 318 pp. with 70 ills. (32 col.). 23 x 16 cm. LC 2011-33308 ISBN 9780520265714 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 147810. Taking as its starting point Little Nemo in Slumberland, a comic strip by American Cartoonist Winsor McCay that appeared in New York City newspapers from 1905 to 1914, this scholarly volume explores the ways in which the emerging media of comics and cartoons embodied a playful, rebellious energy in the early 20th century, while broadening its scope to consider similar "animated" behaviors in such disparate media as films about Jackson Pollock and Vincent van Gogh, the musical My Fair Lady, the slapstick comedies of Jerry Lewis and contemporary superhero comics.
