Born to a mother who did not want him and a father who humiliated him during his upbringing, Ingmar Bergman somehow endured his dysfunctional family to become one of the great artists of the twentieth century. However, the scars left from his early agony affected him both physically and emotionally. He suffered with a disabling psychosomatic gastrointestinal illness and serious problems in his interpersonal relationships. In The Persona of Ingmar Bergman: Conquering Demons through Film, Barbara Young looks at how the director’s personal life shaped his creative output. A practicing psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Young probes Bergman’s relationships with his parents, his wives, his children, and his colleagues to explore the meanings of his many films. As Bergman gradually began to work through his psychological problems, he accomplished something that few people have ever done—he analyzed himself. The films examined in this study include the majority of his features, including The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, The Virgin Spring, Through a Glass Darkly, The Hour of the Wolf, The Passion of Anna, Cries and Whispers, Face to Face, Autumn Sonata, Fanny and Alexander, and Persona. Young also draws upon recorded interviews and Bergman's autobiographical novels to provide further insight into the director's creative process. While many books have been written about Bergman and analysts have studied particular films, this volume represents a unique attempt approach to understanding an artist through his art. The Persona of Ingmar Bergman will appeal to film and art students, as well as those in the psychotherapy profession, and of course, the director’s fans throughout the world.

Long held to be among the world's greatest filmmakers, Ingmar Bergman shaped international art cinema from the 1950s to the 1980s. Among his many works, Persona is often considered to be his masterpiece and is often described as one of the central works of Modernism. Bergman himself claimed that this film 'touched wordless secrets only the cinema can discover'. The essays collected in this volume, and published for the first time, use a variety of methodologies to explore topics such as acting technique, genre, and dramaturgy. It also includes translations of Bergman's early writings that have never before been available in English, as well as an updated filmography and bibliography that cover the filmmaker's most recent work.

"The finest filmmaker of my lifetime . . . Bergman was a born spinner of tales.” --Woody Allen In this new paperback edition, Ingmar Bergman presents an intimate view of his own unique body of work in film. His career spanned forty years and produced more than fifty films, many of which are considered classics: The Seventh Seal, The Virgin Spring, Persona, Smiles of a Summer Night, Wild Strawberries, and Fanny and Alexander, to name but a few. When he began this book, Bergman had not seen most of his movies since he made them. Resorting to scripts and working notebooks, and especially to memory, he comments brilliantly and always cogently on his failures as well as his successes; on the themes that bind his work together; on his concerns, anxieties, and moments of happiness; on the relationship between his life and art. Readers are allowed a glimpse of the inner workings behind his well-known masterpieces: his anxiety and pain as he edited a 312 minute Fanny and Alexander for a three-hour feature film release; his attempt to reconcile the towering figures of his parents with Wild Strawberries. He relates his own starkly honest view of his great triumphs and quiet failures. More clearly than ever before, Images allows us to listen to his "voice of genius” (Woody Allen, New York Times Book Review).

Acknowledged as one of the greatest filmmakers of this or any other time, Bergman has with few exceptions written his own screenplays--an uncommon practice in the film industry--and for this practice critics refer to him as a "literary" filmmaker: In this work, Gado examines virtually the entire range of Bergman's literary output. While treating the matter of the visual presentation of Bergman's films, Gado concentrates on story and narrative and their relationship to Bergman's personal history. Gado concludes that whatever the outward appearance of Bergman's works, they contain an elementary psychic fantasy that links them all, revealing an artist who hoped to be a dramatist, "the new Strindberg," and who saw the camera as an extension of his pen.

Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, born in 1918, is recognized as one of the great geniuses of the cinema. He is also one of the most prolific, with more than fifty titles to his credit, including The Seventh Seal (1957), Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), and Fanny and Alexander (1982). Even now Bergman continues to work, having scripted The Best Intentions, the story of his parents' courtship and marriage, which was voted Best Film at the 1992 Cannes Festival. The late Jean Renoir once observed that every film auteur tells and retells essentially one story: his own. In this pathbreaking study of all Bergman's films, Hubert I. Cohen vividly demonstrates how the great director is the quintessential auteur, driven from his earliest efforts by an "almost pathological narcissism: toward self-revelation. Drawing on the numerous interviews Bergman has granted as well as other biographical and critical sources, including the director's autobiography The Magic Lantern, Cohen shows us how Bergman's preoccupation with his own life is the wellspring of his art. Progressing chronologically through Bergman's oeuvre, he finds the films both the product of and commentary on their creator's childhood and youth, loves and beliefs. Cohen's study also observes Bergman's style and techniques, his signature narrative and visual devices. He shows us how Bergman the deliberate and consummate artist is always in control of Bergman the confessor. Character and plot, structure, motif, and pacing all come into play as Cohen blends his technical analysis with insight into Bergman's motivation, psychology, and artistic development. The result is a deepened understanding both of the films and their extraordinary creator.
