9780786435067: The Cinematic Jane Austen: Essays on the Filmic Sensibility of the Novels

Jane Austen's novels are loved because they possess a comedic power that is often conveyed through the singular voice of the narrators. Film adaptations, however, have often been unsatisfactory because they lack or awkwardly render features, particularly the voice of the narrators. This work argues for a fresh approach that begins with a reading of the novels that emphasizes their auditory and visual dimensions. Building on their examination of Austen's inherently cinematic features, the authors then develop productive new readings of the films.

Book Description McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. The novels of Jane Austen are typified by their comedic power, often most powerfully demonstrated by the singular voice of their narrators. Yet what makes them arresting novels can also produce a less than satisfactory transformation to the world of cinema, where the voice of a narrator often becomes obtrusive. This work argues that despite the difficulties in adapting Austen s writing for the screen, there have been many successes. Each author examines Austen s texts for their inherent cinematic features, analyzing the use of these features in film versions of the novels. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780786435067
