illuminating how the titular heroine has maintained her status as a universally recognizable cultural icon.
Grounded in Ludovic Halevy's and Henri Meilhac's libretto-and drawing on a wealth of mostly French critical theory-this book traces the textual, operatic, and cinematic tellings and retellings of the story, from its success as a novella in the industrial age through to its iconic position in our own cinematic era. As Furman delicately navigates the fraught terrain of racial and gendered discourse and ideology that Bizet's setting of Merimee's work traverses, she uncovers the
elements of the story that give it cultural salience and resonance, both in its own right and in support of Bizet's acclaimed musical score. In doing so, Furman reveals how past and present renderings of the Carmen tale mirror the changing concerns and shifting values of individual authors and their societies-and
how each new rendering has helped to embed Carmen into the global conscience.
