Merchant Ivory's English landscape : rooms, views, and Anglo-Saxon attitudes.

Published by Pavillion, 1995

Hardcover in excellent condition

This volume examines in detail four English films - A Room With a View , Maurice , Howards End and The Remains of the Day - the results of a collaboration, still flourishing after more than 30 years, of the American director James Ivory, the Indian producer Ismail Merchant, and the German-born scriptwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. The Merchant-Ivory team has many personal and professional ties with Britain, and English characters and attitudes observed form the outside have appeared in striking forms in a number of Merchant Ivory's films. Their relationships with E.M. Forster's novels has been especially productive, resulting in what has been called condition of England writing, which questions national identity through personal relationships. In addition to complete filmographies of the four main films, this book provides information for those wishing to visit the places in which the films were shot. Key information such as how to reach the locations and the opening hours of houses and gardens together with details of other nearby places of related interest is provided.
