Satyajit Ray is widely acknowledged to be one of the masters of world cinema. This anthology of critical essays presents a reassessment of his entire oeuvre. The essays range from a close reading of individual films to broader analyses of Ray´s thematic and stylistic concerns. The essays assess Ray´s preoccupations with realism; the development of cinematic modernism in his films; the cultural and ideological context of his work; representational and narrative strategies; and his sense of artistic practice.
