Donovan’s Reef Abstract

Melancholy constitutes a major component in the film universe of John Ford. The best place to isolate it is a comedy such as Donovan’s Reef (1963), where it constantly emerges like the counterpoint and the heart of the smiles inherent to the genre. The return of one of the most loved themes of the film maker, the one of the Three Wise Men, is always linked to the topic of the necessity and difficulty of the paternal function. It also connects with special clarity with certain yearned and unreachable goddess constituting the central reason for the melan-choly. This work is a sort of epilogue to the seminar Oedipus dedicated to the film director and available at gon-zalezrequena.com. Here there follows the biographic connexions that confirm to what extent all this is found in the most intimate core of the director’s subjective truth.

Key words: John Ford. Melancholy. Three Wise Men. Textual Analysis.

Resumen

La melancolía constituye un componente mayor de universo fílmico fordiano. Probablemente el mejor lugar para aislarla sea una comedia como Donovan´s Reef(1963), donde emerge de manera constante como el contrapunto y el fondo de las sonrisas inherentes al género. El retorno de uno de los temas queridos del cineasta, el de los tres Reyes Magos, asociado siempre al asunto de la necesidad y la dificultad de la función paterna, se conecta con especial nitidez con la figura de cierta diosa anhelada e inalcanzable que constituye el motivo central de la melan-colía. En este trabajo, que constituye una suerte de epílogo al seminario Edipo dedicado a la obra del cineasta y disponible en gonzalerzrequena.com, se apuntan las conexiones biográficas que confirman hasta qué punto todo ello se encuentra en el núcleo más íntimo de la verdad subjetiva del cineasta.

Palabras clave: John Ford. Melancolía. Reyes Magos. Análisis textual.
