Example text

Familiar with Scott’s romances from her childhood, Emma readily enters into the tragic events onstage and identifies them with her own miseries. When the ill-fated hero enters, “Emma leaned forward, the better to see him, scraping the velvet of the box with her fingernails. Her heart drank its fill of his melodious lamentations which … resembled the cries of shipwrecked mariners in a storm” (215). Flaubert’s inclusion of incidents that occur elsewhere in the opera house – such as Charles’s clumsy return at intermission from the buffet, carrying barleywater – would not have been lost on the “maximizing” Hitchcock.

Indeed, he confided in Gerald Pratley, “[I]t is harder to make a film that has both integrity and wide commercial appeal than it is to make one that merely satisfies one’s artistic conscience” (Hitchcock, “Credo” 37). At a stroke, this last remark not only places the desire to achieve both integrity and commercial appeal above mere integrity but assumes that Hitchcock has an artistic conscience, that his films express something deep and true about himself irrespective of their commercial appeal.

Dickens’s intention for the most picaresque of his novels, The Old Curiosity Shop (1840), was always to preserve his heroine Little Nell from defilement as she makes her “progress” towards an (ambiguous) early death (42). Epstein sums up the novel: Reduced to its simplest form, The Old Curiosity Shop is a journey. … Nell begins her odyssey as a healthy young girl and slowly moves westward, toward the symbolic realm of the dead. … After suffering so long, Nell has reached a nirvana that is beyond struggle.
