When television was young: primetime Canada 1952-1967

A decade after the 1st Canadian telecasts in September 1952, television had conquered the rustic. Why was once the little monitor so enthusiastically welcomed by means of Canadians? was once tv in its early years extra cutting edge, much less commerical, and extra Canadian than present than present choices? during this learn of what's referred to as the 'golden age' of tv, Paul Rutherford has got down to dispel a few loved myths and to resurrect the reminiscence of a noble test within the making of Canadian culture.

He specializes in 3 key features of the tale. the 1st is the advance of the nationwide provider, together with the severe acclaim gained by way of Radio-Canada, the struggles of the CBC's English provider to supply mass leisure that may compete with the Hollywood product, and the potent problem of non-public tv to the complete dream of public broadcasting.

The moment offers with the wealth of made-in-Canada programming to be had to delight and tell vviewers - even ads obtain shut consciousness. Altogether, Rutherford argues, Canadian programming mirrored in addition to more suitable the present values and assumptions of the mainstream.

The ultimate concentration is on McLuhan's query: What occurs to society whilst a brand new medium of communications enters the image? Rutherford's findings forged doubt upon the typical presumptions concerning the notable strength of television.

Television in Canada, Rutherford concludes, quantities to a failed revolution. It by no means learned the ambbitions of its masters or the fears of its critics. Its direction used to be formed not just by means of the desire of the govt, the facility of trade, and the empire of Hollywood, but additionally via the needs and conduct of the audience.

Example text

14 Aurier’s reading of Gauguin, and its derivation from Moréas’s manifesto, remained largely undisputed, leading to the assumption that Symbolist art derived directly from the literary movement. When it has been discussed at all, Gauguin’s portrayal of Moréas has usually been taken as a confirmation of this. 15 Ostensibly a celebration of the poet and a declaration of allegiance to Symbolism, as La Plume must have understood it, the portrait has generally been accepted as a straightforward call to arms.

In an 1897 letter to Daniel de Monfreid, Gauguin linked Nevermore with his earlier painting by evoking the malevolent spirit of the tupapau and placing a similar emphasis on painterly form above literary narrative: I wanted to suggest with a simple nude a certain savage luxury of days gone by. It is all bathed in deliberately somber and sad colours; it is not silk, nor velvet, nor cambric, nor gold that creates this luxury but simply matter enriched by the artist’s hand. No clutter, it is human imagination alone whose fantasy has enriched the dwelling.

Hierarchies of the Senses in Symbolist Criticism 29 whereas for Leonardo the virtue of this immediacy lay in its superior realism, Delacroix argued that painting’s static conjunction of forms in space was precisely what liberated it from description, and allowed it to approach, even transcend, the purity of music. Delacroix’s insistence that all art amounts to poetry might seem, at first sight, to contradict his ef forts to elevate painting above literature. However, his verbal analogy depended on a crucial distinction – which he elsewhere made explicit – between the merely prosaic form of ‘literature’ and the all-encompassing notion of ‘poetry’.
