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

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.
