Abstract

This Companion offers a multi-disciplinary approach to literature on film and television. Writers are drawn from different backgrounds to consider broad topics, such as the issue of adaptation from novels and plays to the screen, canonical and popular literature, fantasy, and adaptations for children. There are also case studies on, for example, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, the nineteenthcentury novel, and modernism, which allow the reader to place adaptations of the work of writers within a wider context. An interview with Andrew Davies, whose adaptation work includes Pride and Prejudice (1995) and Bleak House (2005), reveals the practical choices and challenges that face the professional writer and adaptor. The Companion, as a whole, provides an extensive survey of an increasingly popular field of study.
