This subject focuses on a number of literary works and their film adaptations. It explores the relationships between the written word and the visual image, some of the strategic decisions that film-makers must make in adapting a written form for the screen, and some of the strengths and weaknesses of each medium. It places the works in their historical and social contexts, contrasts the production of meaning in books and films, and critically explores the ideological implications of narrative form and focus in each medium.
