Synopsis

Adaptation Studies is the site of emerging critical and cultural debates about the value and function of Literature in both `classical' and `popular' forms. This course applies new approaches in adaptation theory to several texts to encourage students to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the way form influences meaning; to question the concept of literary `value,' authorship and fidelity; and to engage with notions of metanarrative and intertextual dialogue. Students will be provided with a site where narratives can be analysed comparatively across media (literary, filmic and popular writing) in order to explore the impact of national narratives, historical changes, and cultural influences.
