Toward a Study on Intolerance

The fatal women of Intolerance wield an enormous power on the level of enunciation: more often than not, they become the subjective focus of the narration, motivating shot changes and authoring structures of vision. 
-Miriam Hansen, "D.W. Griffith's Intolerance," from Classical Hollywood Narrative: The Paradigm Wars, edited by Jane Gaines (1992).
