That question and others are explored in this first comprehensive collection of essays on novel into film adaptations - from Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans (1826) to Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury (1929). Over two thirds of these essays were written expressly for this volume, the work of a new generation of literature-trained but film-oriented teachers and critics. Together they examine how novels and their film adaptations differ from one another in technique, characterisation, scope, and ideological content. To the original essays the editors have added some of the best available writings on adaptations by such critics as Stanley Kauffman and Manny Farber, plus selected commentaries from the actual participants in the process of adaptations - screenwriters and film directors." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Filmography: p. 321-336; Bibliography: p. 337-344 ISBN: 0804426813 : $12.50. 0804466475 pbk. : $4.95 LON: qum00211939; 12437055 857055 More info
