I Am Legend as American Myth by Amy J. Ransom Summary
Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel I Am Legend has spawned a series of iconic horror and science fiction films, including The Last Man on Earth (1964), The Omega Man (1971) and I Am Legend (2007). The compelling narrative of the last man on earth, struggling to survive a pandemic that has transformed the rest of humanity into monsters, has become an American myth. While the core story remains intact, filmmakers have transformed the details over time, reflecting changing attitudes about race and masculinity. This reexamination of Matheson’s novel situates the tale of one man’s conflicted attitude about killing racialized “others” within its original post–World War II context, engaging the question of post-traumatic stress disorder. The author analyzes the several film adaptations, with a focus on the casting and interpretations of protagonist Robert Neville.
America I AM Legends by Tavis Smiley Summary
America I AM: The African American Imprint, a national traveling museum exhibition, was conceived by award-winning broadcaster and bestselling author Tavis Smiley as a one-of-a-kind multi-media experience that chronicles the distinct history of African Americans. This beautifully conceived companion volume addresses the central theme of the exhibition, posed by W. E. B. Du Bois: "Would America have been America without her Negro people?" Through exceptional photographic images and penetrating words, America I AM Legends captures the dynamism of 78 legendary African Americans, highlighting the indelible imprint each has made on the United States and the world. A statement illuminating a unique aspect of each iconic figure— made by the legend or by someone carrying on their legacy today—portrays the vision and contribution of each subject. Whether black artistic genius, athletic excellence, political leadership, or the struggle to hold America true to its promise, each legend reminds us that America would be unrecognizable without its African American imprint. America I AM Legends takes us on an unforgettable journey to the heart of the American experience.

Black Dog, les rêves de Paul Nash by Dave Mc Kean Summary
Il a peint l’horreur pour s’en défaire Peintre surréaliste de la première moitié du XXe siècle, Paul Nash a vécu l’atrocité des tranchées de la Première guerre mondiale. Les cicatrices de cette épreuve ont marqué son œuvre à tout jamais. Auteur de bande dessinée, Dave McKean décide de lui rendre hommage à travers cette biographie fantasmée. Entre réalité et illusion, il explore la fièvre créatrice de l’artiste en se projetant dans ses rêves, hantés par l’image perpétuelle d’un chien noir. Ni malveillant, ni bénin, ce spectre agit comme un présage, un messager, un ennemi... puis un ami. Grâce à la puissance d’évocation de son dessin, McKean parvient à transmettre, à l’image de l’œuvre du peintre qu’il raconte, les effets dévastateurs et les traumatismes profonds légués par la guerre. Il nous offre une plongée cathartique dans les replis de l’âme déchirante d’un artiste déchiré. Conçue à l’origine comme un projet multimédia en lien avec les commémoration de la Grande Guerre, cette œuvre majeure est indispensable dans la (re)lecture actuelle des évènements de 14/18.
