Item description for Sergei Eisenstein: A Biography by Anne Dwyer Oksana Bulgakowa...
This biography came into being after extensive research in Moscow, Berlin, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles. The author is the first to analyze Sergei
Eisenstein's diaries and correspondence---materials that were inaccessible in the past. Eisenstein's relations---with Freemasons, Rosicrucians and Stalin, with rivals, admirers and psychoanalysts---are no longer faded out.
Was Eisenstein homosexual? A Stalinist? A conformist? A dissident? He left no clear answers for his biographers. Oksana Bulgakowa's study of Eisenstein's life tries to uncover these themes in his films and drawings, between the lines of his diaries and letters, in his drafts to screenplays, projects, and scientific research. Late in life Eisenstein viewed his research as his only possible means of salvation from the compromises he had consciously made with himself and his creativity.
