AMOUR DE SWANN, UN; AMOUR DE SWANN, UN (FR/GW, Volker Schlondorff, 1984) Summary: ...Refuting the commonly held view that film adaptations are in most ways inferior to the works on which thay are based, the author contendsthat film is an art eminently capable of translating a novel, not only in plot and theme but in style, technique and effect. And it can also do so without destroying the original work... or emerging as a second-rate version of the printed word.
Providing a close-up study of the ways in which adaptation may serve as a successful, even superlative, interpretation of literature, Double Exposure examines the aesthetics, the history, and the contemporaryresults of moviemakers' use of fiction in film. Here is an eye-opening of contemporary films that succeed, fail, or even transcend their literary source when two parallel art forms join forces at the movie.

Here are some of the stimulating - and occasionally surprising - answers to that question. 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. In addition, there is a bibliography covering the same period, plus complete rental information on the films themselves." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Filmography: p. 349-428; Bibliography: p. 429-443; Sequel/companion to The Classic American Novel and the Movies, also in the Collection ISBN: 0804426821 : $14.50. 0804466491 pbk. : $6.95 LON: 78004373; 1250638 More info
