Film Theory: Literary Approach–Novels into Films

Literary Approach–Novels into Films

Similarities:

Both film and lit share a common nature as discourse (ecriture)

Both are textual and intertextual

Both can foreground their constructed nature

Both can elicit the active collaboration of their readers/spectators

The difference between verbal and visual expression is so great that the “faithfulness” becomes a very relative notion.

Yet the urge to comparison is nearly impossible to refuse.
