Rethinking the Novel/Film Debate

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Apr 2, 2009 - Performing Arts - 316 pages
The critical relationship between books and film has been one of the key topics of cinema studies. Much of the discussion, however, has been inherited from eighteenth-century debates between poetry and painting and thus has fostered false and limiting paradigms in which words and pictures are opposed. This volume historicizes and critiques the central paradigms of the debate. Testing theory against practice, and uncovering the hidden agendas, Kamilla Elliott creates new critical models that can be applied in an effort to transform the field for future inquiry.
