Abstract:

"Literature and Film is a collection of essays that chart the history and confluence of literature and film. Bringing together the very latest scholarship in the field, this guide contains astute and readable contributions - both theoretical and thematic - on the translation of literary into filmic texts." "Subjects range from established classics including The Last of the Mohicans, through consecrated genre works like Cape Fear, to contemporary classics such as The English Patient and Beloved. Almost all of the essays are originals, especially composed for this volume, and written by leading international scholars on both literature and film. The book features an introductory essay tracing the history and practice of adaptation, providing the ideal entry point for students or scholars exploring this dynamic and multifaceted field."--Jacket.
