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.

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

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

Walker's previous volumes, HOLLYWOOD ENGLAND and NATIONAL HEROES, covered the period until 1984. This final volume tells the inside story right up to date of why a nation that produces actors of the calibre of Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Robert Carlyle, Kate Winslet and directors such as Anthony Minghella, Sam Mendes, Stephen Frears, Neil Jordan, Peter Greenaway, Ken Loach and Guy Ritchie cannot sustain a native film industry.
Walker's revelations on the iniquities of National Lottery funding of movies - over £200m to date and hardly a profitable film among those so far produced - have been headline news. Walker relates the extraordinary events of the past two decades years through the individuals, the companies and the studios." -- from book jacket (abridged) Notes: Includes introduction by Joseph Connelly, includes preface and index ISBN: 0752856103 Donation: Bruce Hodsdon Contents: Before the title: The Chinese butterfly -- 1.

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.

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM; APOCALYPSE NOW (US, Francis Ford Coppola, 1979); MOBY DICK (UK, John Huston, 1956); WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO + JULIET (US, Baz Luhrmann, 1996); HOUSE OF MIRTH, THE (UK, Terence Davies, 2000); BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA (US, Francis Ford Coppola, 1992); VERTIGO (US, Alfred Hitchcock, 1958); MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, THE (US, John Frankenheimer, 1962); MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, THE (US, Jonathon Demme, 2004); QUIET AMERICAN, THE (US, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 1957); RIDE WITH THE DEVIL (US, Ang Lee, 1999) Summary: From examinations of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now to Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, The Literature Film Reader: Issues of Adaptation covers a wide range of films adapted from other sources. The first section presents essays on the hows and whys of adaptation studies, and subsequent sections highlight films adapted from a variety of sources, including classic and popular literature, drama, biography, and memoir. The last section offers a new departure for adaptation studies, suggesting that films about history—often a separate category of film study—can be seen as adaptations of records of the past. The anthology concludes with speculations about the future of adaptation studies.
Several essays provide detailed analyses of films, in some cases discussing more than one adaptation of a literary or dramatic source, such as The Manchurian Candidate, The Quiet American, and Romeo and Juliet. Other works examined include Moby Dick, The House of Mirth, Dracula, and Starship Troopers, demonstrating the breadth of material considered for this anthology.
Although many of the essays appeared in Literature/Film Quarterly, more than half are original contributions. Chosen for their readability, these essays avoid theoretical jargon as much as possible. For this reason alone, this collection should be of interest to not only cinema scholars but to anyone interested in films and their source material. Ultimately, The Literature Film Reader: Issues of Adaptation provides an excellent overview of this critical aspect of film studies.

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.
