Product Description

From Library Journal

Whenever literature makes it to the screen, the usual hue and cry of infidelity may be heard, and it echoes here in this collection of essays on contemporary adaptations of women's writing. Most of the authors here tentatively privilege source materials and disdain departures. There are occasions when adaptations nearly eclipse their originals (The Accidental Tourist) and instances of fruitful reinterpretation (In Country). The problem is that when film universalizes, it very often trivializes. Not surprisingly, controversies are eschewed, plots condensed, characters flattened, and themes sanitized?peccadilloes that plague most adaptations. Editor Lupack (Take 2, Bowling Green Univ. Popular Pr., 1994) has published other essays on adaptation; in this case, women's writing serves as a rubric. Because contributors include professors and Ph.D. candidates in English, this has less to do with film theory than with literary criticism. For academic libraries with strong film collections.?Jayne Kate Plymale-Jackson, Univ. of Georgia Libs., Athens
