Product Description


"Recommended [to] all readers." (CHOICE, March 2010)

“There is much to admire in this book. It has a clear focusand a good set of questions. It knows its way round the five filmsand around the classical sources, and is prepared to look atbroader issues in relation to the close reading of thefilms.” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, March 2009)


“A remarkable achievement! Scodel and Bettenworth haveproduced a splendid synthesis at once inter-disciplinary andcross-cultural. Informed by fine classical scholarship and incisivefilm-criticism Whither Quo Vadis is a compellingcontribution to the study of world literature, history, religion,cinema studies.”
John F. Makowski, Loyola University Chicago

“A masterly analysis of all aspects of the art of making afilm from a historical novel. Written in a clear, engaging style,it makes an enjoyable read, with extensive references for readerswho wish to explore the subject further.”
– David Hahm, Ohio State University

"Anyone interested in the translation of epic novel to epic filmwill find valuable insights and learned nuggets here, especiallyconcerning gender roles and political subtexts in the fourcinematic versions (1912 to 2001) and the 1985 televisionminiseries."
