Renowned literary scholar Linda Hutcheon explores the ubiquity of adaptations in all their various media incarnations and challenges their constant critical denigration. Adaptation, Hutcheon argues, has always been a central mode of the story-telling imagination and deserves to be studied in all its breadth and range as both a process (of creation and reception) and a product unto its own.

Persuasive and illuminating, A Theory of Adaptation is a bold rethinking of how adaptation works across all media and genres that may put an end to the age-old question of whether the book was better than the movie, or the opera, or the theme park.

About the Author:

Linda Hutcheon is Distinguished University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. Her many books include A Poetics of Postmodernism, The Politics of Postmodernism, Irony's Edge, and, most recently, Opera: Desire Disease, Death, which she co-wrote with her husband, Michael Hutcheon.

Review:

"Linda Hutcheon's A Theory of Adaptation is abundantly welcome, especially in its explicit aim to theorise a field that has for too long been a refuge for those averse to theoretical self-reflection. Hutcheon’s book is genuinely innovative in its structure....A Theory of Adaptation should give the study of adaptation a new lease of intellectual life..." --Global Media Journal
