Product Overview

Everyone is familiar with H.G. Wells''s pioneering works of science fiction, "The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, "and "The Invisible Man"--but fewer realize how these works helped to technically develop the cinematic narrative. An appealing and accessible study aimed at the student of modernism and early cinema, "H.G. Wells, Modernity, and the Movies" reconsiders Well''s advancement of the cinematic narrative alongside the social and political impact of early media. Including rare illustrations from the original magazines which published Wells''s early work, this groundbreaking study will be of interest to anyone concerned with Wells, his work, and the technological parameters of modern culture.
