The Classic Novel: From Page to Screen

The Classic Novel: From Page to Screen

by Erica Sheen (Editor), Robert Giddings (Editor)


This book critically examines the long established tradition of adapting classic novels to film or TV screen.. An emerging area of interest - the relationship between film and literature and the way cinema and television have translated classic novels into moving pictures from the 30s to the 90s.. A wide-ranging but focused collection that is bang up to date and free of media jargon that looks at both the film and the book.. Includes discussion of: The English Patient, Pride and Prejudice and Middlemarch, Pickwick Papers, Dracula, Dickens, Conrad, Hardy and Waugh.
