Between Stage and Screen Ingmar Bergman Directs by Egil Tornqvist

Ingmar Bergman is worldwide known as a film and stage director. Yet no-one has attempted to compare his stage and screen activities. In Between stage and screen Egil T?rnqvist examines formal and thematical correspondences and differences between a number of Bergman's stage, screen, and radio productions. In the prologue Bergman's spiritual and aesthetic heritage and his position in the twentieth century media landscape is outlined. In the epilogue the question is answered to what extent one can speak of Bergman's directorial 'method' irrespective of the chosen medium.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
