The Man who Laughs

The Man Who Laughs features one of Hugo's most compelling characters, Gwynplaine, a boy whose face has been forcibly deformed to appear as though he is always smiling. After being attacked and abandoned, Gwynplaine finds a blind, orphaned infant in the wilderness. Nearly starving himself, he carries the dying baby to a nearby shack, the home of carnival performer, Ursus, and his pet wolf, Homo.?The story continues as Ursus takes care of Gwynplaine and the baby, Dea, using Gwynplaine and his clown-like deformity in a comedic performance at fairs and carnivals to make money. Gwynplaine falls in love with Dea, and just before confessing his love, is taken away by Wapentake, a servant of Queen Anne. After an incredibly interesting series of events, Gwynplaine escapes to reunite with his family, but he may be too late.?Although one of Hugo's more obscure works, The Man Who Laughs has been alluded to in several contemporary films and writings. H.G. Wells'?The Island of Doctor Moreau refers to the novel when Moreau is explaining the nature of his crazy experiments. J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories features a short story entitled The Laughing Man featuring a disfigured character. Most notably, the appearance of the Joker from the famous Batman comics and movies was inspired by the clown-like, permanent smile of Gwynplaine. While certainly not his most famous work, Hugo's The Man Who Laughs has made a lasting impression, even over 100 years after it was written.

Batman and the Joker

This cultural analysis of visual and narrative elements within Batman comics provides an important exploration of the ways readers and creators negotiate gender, identity, and sexuality in popular culture. Thematic chapters investigate how artists, writers, and fans engage with, challenge, and interpret gendered and sexual representations by focusing on one of the most popular and heated fictional rivalries ever inked: that of Batman and the Joker. The monograph provides critical insights into ways queer reading practices can open new forms of understanding that have generally remained implicit and unexplored in mainstream comics studies. This accessible and interdisciplinary approach to the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime engages diverse fields of scholarship such as Comics Studies, Critical Theory, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Literature, Psychoanalysis, Media Studies, and Queer Theory.

Batman and Philosophy

If I had but a penny for every time I've implored him to take a night off, enjoy the
company of one of the beautiful, ... doing so would serve the greater mission
against crime—silly man. [Laughs.] The giant penny, yes—that reminds me of a
story.

Why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker and end everyone's misery? Can we hold the Joker morally responsible for his actions? Is Batman better than Superman? If everyone followed Batman's example, would Gotham be a better place? What is the Tao of the Bat? Batman is one of the most complex characters ever to appear in comic books, graphic novels, and on the big screen. What philosophical trials does this superhero confront in order to keep Gotham safe? Combing through seventy years of comic books, television shows, and movies, Batman and Philosophy explores how the Dark Knight grapples with ethical conundrums, moral responsibility, his identity crisis, the moral weight he carries to avenge his murdered parents, and much more. How does this caped crusader measure up against the teachings of Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Kierkegaard, and Lao Tzu?

Cowled and scowling, with a winged cape inspired by da Vinci and a thirst for justice born of his parents' murder, he debuted as a comic book character in 1939. Even his earliest incarnation is instantly recognizable: Batman-the Caped Crusader. A few short years later Bob Kane's creation leapt from the printed page to the silver screen, a brooding presence framed against the darkened Gotham skyline, ever vigilant to the misdeeds of a host of maniacal and devious enemies. Since his film debut in the 1940s, Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne have been a regular presence in movies. In various incarnations, with or without his cheerful sidekick Robin, Batman has remained an American icon, capturing the imagination of each successive generation of moviegoers. This detailed examination of live-action Batman features follows his motion picture adventures, from his first appearances on the screen in 1940's film serials, through the camp craze surrounding the 1966 television series, up to the Warner Bros. series of summer blockbusters that began with 1989's Batman starring Michael Keaton. Chapters on each of the seven feature-length Batman movies include extensive film and production credits, a production history, and a critical analysis of the movie relative to other Batman films and the original comic book character. Notes accompany each chapter, and an index and bibliography are included.
