Mankiewicz, 1950); GREAT GATSBY, THE (US/AT, Baz Luhrmann, 2013); MUSIC IN FILMS; WOLF HALL [TV] (UK, 2015) Summary: This book explores the intersection between adaptation studies and what James F. English has called the “economy of prestige,” which includes formal prize culture as well as less tangible expressions such as canon formation, fandom, authorship, and performance. The chapters explore how prestige can affect many facets of the adaptation process, including selection, approach, and reception. The first section of this volume deals directly with cycles of influence involving prizes such as the Pulitzer, the Man Booker, and other major awards. The second section focuses on the juncture where adaptation, the canon, and awards culture meet, while the third considers alternative modes of locating and expressing prestige through adapted and adaptive intertexts. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of adaptation, cultural sociology, film, and literature. -- [taken from publishers site] Notes: Includes index ISBN: 9783319528533 Contents: 1.Adaptation and Systems of Cultural Value / Eric Sandberg -- 2.The Pulitzers Go to Hollywood / Thomas Leitch -- 3.Beware of Imitations: All about Eve (1950) / Laurence Raw -- 4.Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall(s) and the Circulation of Cultural Prestige / Eric Sandberg -- 5.Adapting Queerness, Queering Adaptation: Fun Home on Broadway / Joanna Mansbridge -- 6.Oliver's Auteurs: The Cases of Lean and Polanski / Jeffrey E.

Beginning with the history of Shakespeare on film, from Olivier's and Branagh's Hamlet, contributors examine screen versions of literary classics, from Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter and Louisa May Alcott's Little Women to Thomas Keneally's Schindler's Ark and Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting. Adaptations goes on to consider adaptation in reverse: How writers like Virginia Woolf incorporated cinematic elements into their work, and explains why there had to be a novel of Jane Campion's The Piano. Contributors examine adaptations from comics to film, such as the Batman movies, Star Trek's incarnations as a long-running tv series, and then as a sequence of movies, and 101 Dalmations' [sic] move from children's novel to cartoon to live-action film." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 226-238) and index ISBN: 041516737X (hbk); 0415167388 (pbk); 041516737X (hardcover : alk. paper); 0415167388 (pbk : alk. paper) LON: 14255526 Contents: Part 1: an overview -- Adaptations: the contemporary dilemmas / Imelda Whelehan; Part 2: from text to screen -- Introduction / Deborah Cartmell -- The Shakespeare on screen industry / Deborah Cartmell -- Conservative Austen, radical Austen: Sense and Sensibility from text to screen / Julian North -- From Emma to Clueless: taste, pleasure and the scene of history / Esther Sonnet -- Imagining the puritan body: the 1995 cinematic version of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter / Roger Bromley -- Four Little Women: three films and a novel / Pat Kirkham and Sarah Warren -- Will Hollywood never learn?

Why do so many of the films described as adaptations seem to derive from canonical literature rather than from other sources? How do the different media affect the ways stories are told? Film Adaptation offers fresh approaches to the art, theory, and cultural politics of movie adaptations, even challenging what is meant by the term "adaptation" itself. Contributors examine the process of adaptation in both theory and practice, discussing a wide variety of films. James Naremore's introduction provides an accessible historical overview of the field and reveals the importance of adaptation study to the many different academic disciplines now attracted to the analysis of film as commodity, document, and cultural artifact." -- BOOK BLURB

This volume identifies and investigates a far wider array of problems posed by the process of adaptation.
Thomas Leitch considers how the creators of short silent films attempted to give them the weight of literature, what sorts of fidelity are possible in an adaptation of sacred scripture, what it means for an adaptation to pose as an introduction to, rather than a transcription of, a literary classic, and why and how some films have sought impossibly close fidelity to their sources. Leitch's analysis moves beyond literary sources to consider why a small number of adaptors have risen to the status of auteurs and how illustrated books, comic strips, video games, and true stories have been adaptated to the screen." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (p. -338) and index ISBN: 9780801892714 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- 1: Literature versus literacy -- 2: One-reel epics -- 3: The word made film -- 4: Entry-level Dickens -- 5: Between adaptation and allusion -- 6: Exceptional fidelity -- 7: Traditions of quality -- 8: Streaming pictures -- 9: The hero with a hundred faces -- 10: The adapter as auteur -- 11: Postliterary adaptation -- 12: Based on a true story -- notes -- bibliography -- index -- More info

Leonard, 1940); PRIDE AND PREJUDICE [TV] (UK/US, Simon Langton, 1995); PERSUASION (UK, Roger Michell, 1995) Summary: "In 1995 and 1996 six film or television adaptations of Jane Austen's novels were produced - an unprecedented number. More amazing, all were critical and/or box office successes. What accounts for this explosion of interest? Much of the appeal of these films lies in our nostalgic desire at the end of the millenium for an age of greater politeness and sexual reticence. Austen's ridicule of deceit and pretentiousness also appeals to our fin de siècle sensibilities. The novels were changed, however, to enhance their appeal to a wide popular audience, and the revisions reveal much about our own culture and its values. These recent productions espouse explicitly twentieth-century feminist notions and reshape the Austenian hero to make him conform to modern expectations. Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield present fourteen essays examining the phenomenon of Jane Austen as cultural icon, providing thoughtful and sympathetic insights on the films through a variety of critical approaches. The contributors debate whether these productions enhance or undercut the subtle feminism that Austen promoted in her novels." - BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 186-187) and index ISBN: 0813120845 (alk. paper) LON: 13891695 Contents: Introduction: watching ourselves watching / Linda Troost and Sayre Greenfield -- Out of the drawing room, onto the lawn / Rachel M.

While a film reflects its literary source, it also invites comparisons to our memories of and associations with other versions of the original. For example, a viewer may watch the 2005 big-screen production of Pride and Prejudice and look back on the BBC's 1995 mini-series as well as Jane Austen's novel. Adaptations also rely on the conventions of genre, editing, acting, and sound to engage with our recollections-elements that many movie critics tend to forget when focusing solely on faithfulness to the written word."-BOOK JACKET Notes: includes filmography; includes bibliographical references; includes index ISBN: 9780742538214 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema Contents: -- Acknowledgments -- Introduction -- 1.
