9781783202010: Fan Phenomena: Marilyn Monroe

Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Marilyn Monroe was an actress, singer, and sex symbol whose influence far outlasted her short life. Contributors to Fan Phenomena: Marilyn Monroe situate the platinum blonde starlet’s omnipresent cultural relevance within the zeitgeist of current popular culture and explore the influence she has had on numerous elements of it. Her aesthetics and images have been reappropriated, recreated, imitated, and emulated by such celebrities as Lindsay Lohan, Jayne Mansfield, Drew Barrymore, Anna Nicole Smith, and Madonna. The quintessential American sex symbol, Monroe was an influential style icon for a spectrum of designers, including Dolce and Gabbana, Betsey Johnson, and Nike, all of whom have named lines of clothing, shoes, or accessories after the star.

The essays here explore representations of Monroe in visual culture by looking at the ways she is reimagined in visual art while also considering how her posthumous appearance and image are appropriated in current advertisements. With an inside look at the universe of Marilyn Monroe impersonators and look-alike contests for both males and females, the book also explores numerous homages to Monroe in music, from the 1979 opera Marilyn by Lorenzo Ferrero to Nicki Minaj’s song Marilyn Monroe.” The definitive guide to one of the most famous women who ever lived, the book will be essential reading for any scholar of twentieth-century American popular culture.

About the Author :

Marcelline Block is a lecturer in history at Princeton University. She is the editor of Intellect's World Film Locations books on Paris, Las Vegas, Marseilles, and Prague.

Review :

One of the nicest books I have read in a long time. A compilation of essays exploring Marilyn's status in cultures across the world and features homages from her fans with their own appreciations noted in brief question and answers [...] I feel the love from within its pages...almost like feeling someone's heartbeat. The book is full of warmth and affection from the contributors featured. It has been put together with a lot of thought for the subject and you can't help thinking Marilyn herself would feel very  moved by this fascinating tribute. -Fraser Penney, Immortal Marilyn

A quirkier, more intimate look at the icon than is generally depicted[...]brings new insight to Marilyn's undying appeal, and provides an up-to-date companion piece for earlier cultural studies like American Monroe and The Immortal Marilyn. -Everlasting Star

'A trip around one of the most famous and photographed women in the world, portrayed through a reading that proves essential not only for fans of the blonde actress, but for any student of American popular culture of the twentieth century' - Marzia Pomponio

In a way, Monroe is the perfect subject for a study of fandom, as her cult is entirely propped up by those in love with her[...] The appeal of Fan Phenomena: Marilyn Monroe for Monroe's legions will be in finally seeing their own devotion examined in the sort of detail usually reserved for their idol.  -Eric Hillis, The Movie Waffler

A significant addition to cinema history and to social history. This is the best book on The Marilyn since Graham McCann and it goes beyond its star to hint at some of the mechanics of fame and fandom, rather odd and psychologically extremely complicated human inventions. [Marilyn Monroe] was a fandom phenomenon that this book goes far toward explaining. -Leonard R.N. Ashley, PhD, professor emeritus, Brooklyn College
