Telling It Again and Again

Repetition in Literature and Film
Bruce F. Kawin

How do writers and filmmakers use repetition? While repetition is useful when accenting an idea, in this original and thought-provoking book, Bruce F. Kawin argues it serves a more important function as a manipulator of our sense of time and the timeless. Brilliantly juxtaposing the aesthetics of novelty against those of repetition, Kawin shows how the connections and rhythm of repetition offer revelations about literature and film, nature and memory, and time and art.
