The Routledge new edition of this classic book functions as an accessible introduction to the historical and theoretical exchanges between film and literature and also includes the key critical readings necessary for an understanding of this increasingly vibrant and popular field of adaption studies.

This new edition has been fully updated and is usefully separated into three sections: in the first section Timothy Corrigan guides readers through the history of film and literature to the present; the second section has expanded to reprint 28 key essays by leading theorists in the field including André Bazin, Linda Hutcheon and Robert Stam, as well as new essays by Timothy Corrigan and William Galperin; and the third section offers hands-on strategies and advice for students writing about film and literature.

Film and Literature will fill a gap for many film and literature courses and courses concentrating on the interplay between the two.

The companion website features an interactive timeline, extended filmography and comprehensive bibliography, by Geoff Wright, Samford University, USA. www.routledge.com/cw/corrigan

About the Author:

Timothy Corrigan is Professor of English and Cinema Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, USA. His work in Cinema Studies has focused on modern American and contemporary international cinema. His books include New German Film: The Displaced Image, The Films of Werner Herzog: Between Mirage and History, Writing about Film, A Cinema without Walls: Movies and Culture after Vietnam and The Essay Film: From Montaigne, After Marker. He is the editor of the journal Adaptation.

Review:

Striking the perfect balance between text and context, Corrigan’s volumes proves a wonderful tool for students as well as teachers.

Jan Baetens, Leuven Uni, Belgium

 

Corrigan’s Film and Literature offers an accessible history of the contentious intellectual relationship between literature and film as well as the often symbiotic history of their industrial relations. The selected readings cover an excellent range of influential, as well as cutting-edge, approaches to the area of study, and the concluding guide to writing about Film and Literature is a welcome addition.

Dr. Shelley Cobb, Southampton, UK

 

This text offers ‘the complete package’―containing history, theory, and praxis―for professors teaching courses in this growing field. Without a doubt, this will be the book I use for film and literature courses in the years to come.

Dr. Melissa Croteau, California Baptist University, USA

 

The Corrigan book admirably fulfills its roles as an overview on the subject and as an anthology of theoretical positions and critical approaches.

James Goodwin, University of California, USA

 

Corrigan’s lucid introduction to the phases of early cinema in respect of the intrinsic but often under-appreciated interface between literary and filmic forms of expression offers a concise, lucid and authoritative account of its genealogy and development.

Mike Ingham, Lingnan University, H.K.
