Delving equally into the individual approaches of directors and writers, Hsiu-Chuang Deppman initiates readers into the exciting possibilities emanating from the world of Chinese cinema. The seven in-depth studies include a diverse array of forms (cinematic adaptation of literature, literary adaptation of film, auto-adaptation, and non-narrative adaptation) and a variety of genres (martial arts, melodrama, romance, autobiography, documentary drama). Complementing this formal diversity is a geographical range that far exceeds the cultural, linguistic, and physical boundaries of China. The directors represented here also work in the U.S. and Europe and reflect the growing international resources of Chinese-language cinema." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (p. 215-233) and index ISBN: 9780824834548 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema 2013 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- introduction -- 1.

Unraveling a feverish metaphor for the blossoming of a young girl's sexuality and her subsequent loss of innocence, the film entwines symbolism and metaphor with striking visuals and grisly effects. Released in the early 1980s, a time which produced several classic werewolf films (including An American Werewolf in London and The Howling), The Company of Wolves sets itself apart from the pack with its overtly literary roots, feminist stance, and art-house leanings. The film's narrative takes the form of a puzzle box, unfolding as dreams within dreams, and stories within stories, which lead further into the dark woods of the protagonist's psyche, as she finds herself on the cusp of womanhood. This Devil's Advocate explores all these aspects, as well as placing the film in the context of the careers of its creators and its position as an example of the "Female Gothic."" -- Angus and Robertson ISBN: 9781911325314 Contents: -- introduction -- chapter one: once upon a time -- Chapter two : telling tales -- chapter three: red hoods, dark woods -- chapter four: seeing red -- chapter five: the big bad wolf -- chapter six: 'a she-wolf came' -- chapter seven: happily ever after -- bibliography -- More info
Darkness subverted : Aboriginal Gothic in Black Australian literature / Katrin Althans
Goettingen: V&R unipress GMBH,
Call No: 639(94)-054(=995.1) ALT Author: Althans, Karin Edition: 2010 Place: Goettingen Publisher: V&R unipress GMBH PhysDes: 214 p. : illus. ; 25 cm Subject: WATSON, SAM; NIGHT CRIES : A RURAL TRAGEDY (AT, Tracey Moffatt, 1990); BEDEVIL (AT, Tracey Moffat, 1993); COLE, BECK; INDIGENOUS; LITERATURE AND THE CINEMA Summary: At the heart of the Gothic novel proper lies the discursive binary of »self« and »other«, which in colonial literature was quickly filled with representations of the colonial master and his indigenous subject. Contemporary black Australian artists have usurped this colonial Gothic discourse, torn it to pieces, and finally transformed it into an Aboriginal Gothic.
This study first develops the theoretical concept of an Aboriginal Gothic and then uses this term as a tool to analyse novels by Vivienne Cleven, Mudrooroo, Kim Scott, Sam Watson, and Alexis Wright as well as films directed by Beck Cole and Tracey Moffatt. It centres on the question of how a genuinely European mode, the Gothic, can be permeated and thus digested by elements of indigenous Australian culture in order to portray the current situation of Aboriginal Australians and to celebrate a recovered cultural identity. -- publisher's blurb ISBN: 9783899717686 ID2: 247 More info

He traces themes such as the influence of US crime drama on English film, and film adaptations of literary works as they appear in screen work from the 1930s to the present. A Canterbury Tale and the documentary Listen to Britain are analyzed in the context of village pageants and other wartime explorations of Englishness at risk. English crime dramas are set against the writings of George Orwell, while a famous line from Noel Coward also leads to a discussion of music and image in works including Brief Encounter and Look Back in Anger. Screen adaptation is also broached in analyses of the 1985 BBC version of Dickens's Bleak House and Merchant-Ivory's The Remains of the Day." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes notes and index ISBN: 9780253221773 More info

Boasting more than 323 items, this uh idiosyncratic survey is as comprehensive and insightful as it is undisciplined and incoherent, all of which qualities Strong appears to regard as cardinal virtues. If his self-designated mission is to somehow undermine the canon, his inspiration appears to be drawn from the charge of the Light Brigade. Nevertheless, even the most ardent Burroughs scholar will find something new here, even if it's just been made up for funty laff value.

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

Cohen argues that as cinema has become a more dominant media, the novel itself has adapted to take on more cinematic qualities and vice versa.

But 'heritage cinema' is all too often discussed from literary (not cinematic) perspectives, and criticism of the films has long been overshadowed by the question of a film's fidelity to the original text. This volume of essays, reviews, and interviews seeks to redress this imbalance, by examining the often antagonistic relationship between literature and film - presenting both sides of the argument about whether heritage cinema's elaborate aesthetics owe more to nostalgia than to historical accuracy. In her challenging introduction to the volume, Ginette Vincendeau sketches the terms of the debate, arguing that the genre is an important, but often critically neglected, form of popular cinema. Film/Literature/Heritage, the latest in a series of 'Sight and Sound Readers', embraces a wide range of literary adaptation, from William Shakespeare to William Burroughs, covering films from Orlando to LA Confidential, and directors from Martin Scorcese to Peter Greenaway." - BOOK BLURB ISBN: 0851708420; 0851708412(pbk.) : ¦13.99 LON: 22285912 More info

UK Summary: "From The Death of Nancy Sykes (1897) to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) and beyond, cinematic adaptations of British literature participate in a complex and fascinating history. The History of British Literature on Film, 1895-2015 is the only comprehensive narration of cinema's 100-year-old love affair with British literature. Unlike previous studies of literature and film, which tend to privilege particular authors such as Shakespeare and Jane Austen, or particular texts such as Frankenstein, or particular literary periods such as Medieval, this volume considers the multiple functions of filmed British literature as a cinematic subject in its own right-one reflecting the specific political and aesthetic priorities of different national and historical cinemas. In what ways has the British literary canon authorized and influenced the history and aesthetics of film, and in what ways has filmed British literature both affirmed and challenged the very idea of literary canonicity? Seeking to answer these and other key questions, this indispensable study shows how these adaptations emerged from and continue to shape the social, artistic, and commercial aspects of film history"--

The text takes a distinct approach to understanding Campion's films, positioning them not simply as the work of a cinematic auteur, but as the culmination of a complex set of textual relationships and practices. In doing so, Tincknell argues persuasively that the director's use of adaptation goes well beyond the conventionally respectful approach to literary texts, opting instead for a playful, subversive and challenging re-imagining of the connections between literature, myth, cultural identity and cinema." -- PORTION OF BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains bibliographic references and index -- list of illustrations included as looseleaf in front of book ISBN: 9780230229006 Contents: -- pt.

Call No: 97 OHA Author: O'Hagan, Andrew Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Faber and Faber PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: 279 p. ; 24 cm Subject: LITERATURE AND THE CINEMA; MONROE, MARILYN Summary: In November 1960, Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn Monroe a dog. His name was Maf. He had an instinct for the twentieth century. For politics. For psychoanalysis. For literature. For interior decoration. This is his story. Maf the dog was with Marilyn for the last two years of her life. Not only a picaresque hero himself, he was also a scholar of the adventuring rogue in literature and art, witnessing the rise of America's new liberalism, civil rights, the space race, the New York critics, and was Marilyn Monroe's constant companion.
The story of Maf the dog is a hilarious and highly original peek into the life of a complex canine hero - he was very much a real historical figure, with his license and photographs sold at auction along with Marilyn's other person affects. Through the eyes of Maf we're provided with an insight into the life of Monroe herself, and a fascinating take on one of the most extraordinary periods of the twentieth century ISBN: 9780571215997 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2013 More info

DICKENS, CHARLES; ADAPTATIONS. SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM; LITERATURE AND THE CINEMA; POETRY AND THE CINEMA; AGEE, JAMES; EISENSTEIN, SERGEI M.; FELLINI, FEDERICO; GRIFFITH, DAVID WARK Summary: "Beginning with the simple but possibly crucial observation that, in general, literature and film are storytelling arts, Mr. Richardson presents a lucid and straightforward analysis arguing that film and literature are not the entirely different, antithetical disciplines that they are widely held to be. He shows clearly the relationship of film to literature, outlining differences as well as similarities, and common goals as well as divergent aims appropriate to the two arts, demonstrating how each form and its associated criticism is frequently able to illuminate and enliven the other. A film's consciousness sharpens the reader's alertness to the visual and aural qualities that mark much great writing, and literary training, in turn, adds depth and perspective to appreciation of film. Mr. Richardson goes on to present some of the literary influences, such as the writings Dickens and Flaubert, that have significantly affected film since the era of D.W. Griffith, and he discusses film's major influences on modern literature. The author concludes with an extended exploration of the relationship of film to poetry, suggesting that while the two forms have been concerned with similar thematic material and make use of similar techniques, film has dealt more significantly with the question of how to find a humane, noncoercive order in life.

Merchants of Menace: The Business of Horror Cinema responds to a major void in film history by shedding much-needed new light on the economic dimensions of one of the world's most enduring audiovisual forms. Given horror cuts across budgetary categories, industry sectors, national film cultures, and media, Merchants of Menace also promises to expand understandings of the economics of cinema generally.

This book is a follow-up to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, which ended in 1929, but it can be read on its own. [This book] covers novels and films from the 1930s to the 1970s, from Erskine Caldwell's Tobacco Road to James Dickey's Deliverance. In between, many film translations of notable novels are scrutinized - works by such authors as Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, McCullers, Nabokov, Updike, Kesey, and Vonnegut [...] Style, characterisation, theme, and ideology come under review. And we get behind-the-scenes insights into the actual filming of some celebrated novels. Of special value to scholars and students of film: extended filmographies by both author and film title of adaptations of American novels published between 1930 and 1975.

Novel to Film is the first systematic theoretical account of the process by which works of literature are transformed into the good, bad (sometimes ugly) but always distinctive medium of cinema. This book proposes a concise and carefully constructed account of how this metamorphosis may be analysed in depth. Drawing upon modern and literary film theory this book proposes a methodology for considering novels and the films made from them. In the first serious account of its kind, the book begins with a firm theoretical basis for a study of adaptation and then shows how this might be applied to five case studies representing a range of fiction and cinematic practice. The Scarlet Letter, Random Harvest, Great Expectations, Daisy Miller, and Cape Fear are the films, ranging from the silent era to the modern thriller. Uniquely wide ranging, this book provides an important new analysis of a much discussed but little understood topic.'

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.

Written to appeal alike to specialists in adaptation, scholars in allied fields, and general readers, it hearkens back to the foundations of adaptation studies a century and more ago, surveys its ferment of activity over the past twenty years, and looks forward to the future. It considers the very different problems in adapting the classics, from the Bible to Frankenstein to Philip Roth, and the commons, from online mashups and remixes to adult movies. It surveys a dizzying range of adaptations around the world, from Latin American telenovelas to Czech cinema, from Hong Kong comics to Classics Illustrated, from Bollywood to zombies, and explores the ways media as different as radio, opera, popular song, and videogames have handled adaptation. Going still further, it examines the relations between adaptation and such intertextual practices as translation, illustration, prequels, sequels, remakes, intermediality, and transmediality."--Publisher.

Savage Junctures plays close attention to the multiple contexts within which Eisenstein’s films evolved. Eisenstein was particularly interested in the possibilities of visual thinking and, in this spirit; each chapter addresses the question of his image based philosophy from a different perspective.

Screening Shakespeare in the twenty-first century / edited by Mark Thornton Burnett and Ramona Wray
Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2006.
Call No: 753SHA SCR Author: Burnett, Mark Thornton; Wray, Ramona Edition: 1st ed. Source: UK Place: Edinburgh Publisher: Edinburgh University Press PubDate: 2006 PhysDes: iv, 218 p. ; 24 cm Subject: DRAMAS; ADAPTATIONS; LITERATURE AND THE CINEMA; ADAPTATIONS. SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM; Shakespeare, William Summary: This bold new collection offers an innovative discussion of Shakespeare on screen after the millenium. Cutting-edge and fully up-to-date, it surveys the rich field of Bardic film representations, from Michael Almereyda's Hamlet to the BBC 'Shakespe(Re)-Told' season, from Michael Radford's The Merchant of Venice to Peter Babakitis' Henry V. In addition to offering in-depth analyses of all the major productions, Screening Shakespeare in the Twenty-first Century includes reflections upon the less well-known filmic 'Shakespeares', which encompass cinema advertisements, appropriations, post-colonial reinventions and mass media citations, and which move across and between genres and mediums.
Arguing that Shakespeare is a magnet for negotiations about style, value and literary authority, the essays contend that screen reinterpretations of England's most famous dramatist simultaneously address concerns centred upon nationality and ethnicity, gender and romance, and 'McDonaldisation' and the political process, thereby constituting an important intervention in the debates of the new century. As a result, through consideration of such offerings as the derry Film Initiative Hamlet, the New Zealand The Maori Merchant of Venice and the television documentary In Search of Shakespeare, this collection isa able to assess as never before the continuing relevance of Shakepseare in his local and global screen incarnations. -BOOK JACKET Notes: "Early versions of some of these chapters were given as papers at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne meeting of the British Shakespeare Association" -- Acknowledgements; Includes index; Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 0748623515 Donation: Donated by Senses Of Cinema, 2009 Contents: 'If I'm right' : Michael Wood's In search of Shakespeare / Richard Dutton -- 'I see my father' in 'my mind's eye' : surveillance and the filmic Hamlet / Mark Thornton Burnett -- Backstage pass(ing) : Stage beauty, Othello and the make-up of race / Richard Burt -- The postnostalgic Renaissance : the 'place' of Liverpool in Don Boyd's My kingdom / Courtney Lehmann -- Our Shakespeares : British television and the strains of multiculturalism / Susanne Greenhalgh, Robert Shaughnessy -- Looking for Shylock : Stephen Greenblatt, Michael Radford and Al Pacino / Samuel Crowl -- Speaking Ma¯ori Shakespeare : The Maori merchant of Venice and the legacy of colonisation / Catherine Silverstone -- 'Into a thousand parts divide one man' : dehumanised metafiction and fragmented documentary in Peter Babakitis' Henry V / Sarah Hatchuel -- Screening the McShakespeare in post-millennial Shakespeare cinema / Carolyn Jess-Cooke -- Shakespeare and the singletons, or, Beatrice meets Bridget Jones : post-feminism, popular culture and 'Shakespea(re)-told' / Ramona Wray.

Prompted by the widespread success of these films, Gabriel Miller here re-evaluates the careers of the eight neglected novelists whose works inspired eight different directors - among them Sidney Lumet, Stanley Kubrick, John Huston, and Sidney Pollack. Each chapter offers a detailed interpretation of a particular film, its literary source, and the overall career of the novelist [...] Some of these interesting novels have never been dealt with at all; others have only recently attracted critical attention. The films, too, benefit from extended reassessment. Despite the fact that the movies were successful, moreso than the novels, they have attracted little in the way of useful analysis. Taken together, the double examination of the novel and film raises some important questions about the nature and problems of cinematic adaptation." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 199-203; Filmography: p. 196-198; Typo in the table of contents gives 'The Gangster' release date as 1957, it is actually 1947 ISBN: 0804426228 : $9.95 LON: 79048071; 1682173 More info

Focusing in the main on West Side story, Franco Zeffirellis' 1968 'flower child' version, and Baz Luhrmann's iconic film, this book offers unique insight into the adaptation process by tracing the ways in which the play's complex textual origins have led filmmakers to approach it from often unexpected angles, ranging from parodies to tragedies of genocidal proportions, as Shakespeare in Love and Deepa Mehta's controversial 2005 film Water, retrospectively demonstrate. Providing a comprehensive analysis of the production and reception of screen adaptations of Romeo and Juliet across time, place, culture, and medium, this book is an indispensible companion for students, film historians, and curious admirers of the world's greatest love story.
