Since its maiden voyage and sinking in April 1912, Titanic has become a monumental icon of the 20th century and has inspired a wealth of interpretations across literature, art and media. This book offers a comprehensive discussion of the diverse representations of the connections and differences in the way generations of artists and audiences have approached and used the tragedy. In the final section is an in-depth study of James Cameron's blockbuster film "Titanic".

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Times: "Splendid as the Titanic was during its brief life as a transatlantic liner, it was in death that it really came into its own. As the editors of The Titanic in Myth and Memory observe: 'The Titanic has become a monumental icon of the 20th Century, and perhaps more generally of the aspirations and anxieties of modernity.' " FILM Magazine: "meticulously researched" "engrossing reading" "The film fan has been waiting a long time for this book, but tread carefully, as it can have quite an insidious impact on a working day!"
