Drawn from the Classics: Essays on Graphic Adaptations of Literary Works
Stephen E. Tabachnick, Esther Bendit Saltzman
McFarland, May 13, 2015 - Literary Criticism - 292 pages
The graphic novel is the most exciting literary format to emerge in the past thirty years. Among its more inspired uses has been the superlative adaptation of literary classics. Unlike the comic book abridgments aimed at young readers of an earlier era, today’s graphic novel adaptations are created for an adult audience, and capture the subtleties of sophisticated written works. This first ever collection of essays focusing on graphic novel adaptations of various literary classics demonstrates how graphic narrative offers new ways of understanding the classics, including the works of Homer, Poe, Flaubert, Conrad and Kafka, among many others.
