BOOK: Adaptations: From Text to Screen Screen to Text

What happens when Jane Austen's Emma becomes the big screen's Clueless? How does Batman the comic book translate into a cartoon, television show, and film? With contributions from some of the finest film scholars in the world, Adaptations looks at what happens to popular texts when they are transformed into an entirely different medium, including novel and comic book to screen and an innovative look at screen to novel. Wide-ranging and innovative in its approach, Adaptations is a trenchant look at how a story changes--successfully or not--in all its mediums: novel, film, comic book, cartoon, and television.
