Book Description:

Literature and Film is a superb collection of vibrant essays that chart the history and confluence of literature and film. Featuring an ambitious introductory essay tracing the theory and practice of adaptation, the volume explores in detail a wide and international spectrum of novels and adaptations. Subjects range from established classics like The Grapes of Wrath, The Last of the Mohicans, Mansfield Park, and Remembrance of Things Past, to consecrated genre works like Dracula and Cape Fear, to contemporary classics like The English Patient and Beloved. The analysis bears on individual films - such as Clockers and Like Water for Chocolate - and larger themes, like the depictions of writers in film and orature in African cinema. Bringing together the very latest scholarship in the field, the Reader contains astute and readable essays, both theoretical and thematic, on the translation of literary into filmic texts. Most of the essays are originals, especially composed for this volume, and written by leading international scholars on both literature and film. This volume provides an ideal way to become aware of the newest trends in film-literature studies, which go beyond issues of "fidelity" to explore film/literature relations in all their multi-faceted intertextuality. This book can be used as a stand-alone reference source, or alongside the textbook Literature through Film: Realism, Magic, and the Art of Adaptation for a complete learning package in this dynamic field.
