This edition of Laura Mulvey's first collection of essays contains a new introduction in which she re-assesses her essay 'Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema'. She argues that new technologies of film consumption have altered visual pleasure, its relation to narrative, and have thus affected theories of gendered spectatorship. In a new essay, specifically written for this edition, the author turns to the cinematic representation of the 'young modern woman' of the 1920s, suggesting that historical context also affects theories of visual pleasure.
