Lightbulb Free (DRM-free) Stoleleg: Jørgen Leths verdener [Danish Filmmaker Career & Critique]

Stoleleg: Jørgen Leths verdener (Chair Games: The Worlds of Jørgen Leth) by Dan Ringgaard (profile), a Professor in the Communication and Culture department at Aarhus University and a recipient of the Georg Brandes Prize for literary criticism, is his Danish-language retrospective appreciation cum critical examination of the life and times and works of the subtitular Danish filmmaker (Wikipedia), free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Aarhus University Press in Denmark.

This is their featured Danish-language Free Book of the Month for February. While Leth is best known to international audiences as a filmmaker, he is apparently also a poet and has dabbled in journalism, sports, and other fields which author Ringgaard covers in a series of essays, apparently from a somewhat personal perspective, drawing from his own encounters with Leth and his resulting views of the man's work, and according to the subject's official blog, was published to coincide with his 75th birthday.

Currently free through February directly from the university @ their dedicated promo page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide, approx ~2.2 mb), and you can read more about the book on its regular catalogue page.

Beskrivelse på dansk
Månedens gratis e-bog er Stoleleg. Jørgen Leths verdener af Dan Ringgaard.

I Jørgen Leths værk består verden af tid og tilfælde. Leth udfordrer vores måde at læse og se på ved fascineret at pege på en verden som går forud for fortolkning og kritik. En verden som er, og som vil os noget. Og han provokerer ved at drive en æstetisk livsholdning til det yderste. Kunsten selv er en del af denne verden af tid og tilfælde, men den er samtidig en passioneret registrant af den og et metodisk indgreb i den. Leths værker befinder sig midt i foranderligheden, men hans stil er umiskendelig. Stilen formår med Roland Barthes' ord "at indføre en rytme i fataliteten" og "at give det nødvendige udseende af frihed". Og det er måske Leths største bedrift: Hans værk er frem for alt frigørende.

Stoleleg handler om hele Leths værk: filmene, digtene, sporten, journalistikken, det hele inklusive Leth selv og de verdener han færdes i.

"Jeg havde kun mødt Jørgen Leth en enkelt gang tidligere, da jeg bankede på døren til hans hotelværelse, og han, netop ankommet, tog imod i bar overkrop. Det var manden bag de mærkelige film der indimellem blev vist i fjernsynet da jeg var dreng i halvfjerdserne, og hvis poesi havde aflejret sig i mig. Det var Informations Haiti-korrespondent fra firserne hvor jeg studerede og abonnerede på den avis, det var kommentatoren fra de store Tour de France-årgange i halvfemserne, og det var digteren hvis format først gik op for mig da jeg i 2000 læste come back-samlingen Billedet forestiller og så småt begyndte at stykke det hele sammen til ét billede, et billede der rakte bag om det hele og tilbage til tresserne hvor Leths kunst fandt sin form."

Dan Ringgaard er dr.phil. og lektor i nordisk litteratur ved Aarhus Universitet. Han har tidligere udgivet blandt andet Den poetiske lækage. Sophus Claussens lyrik, rejsebøger og essayistik (2000), Digt og rytme (2002), Nordbrandt (2005) og Stedssans (2010) for hvilken han modtog Georg Brandes-prisen.

Just a reminder that this will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie if you haven't already.
