LIT 393 Literature and Film

This course examines the longstanding and complex relationship between literature and film from a variety of different historical, critical, and theoretical perspectives. Special attention will be given to the process of adaptation by which filmmakers attempt to create cinematic analogues to pre-existing literary texts. Other possible topics might include a study of the way in which literary modes and traditions have helped to shape the development of the cinema as a medium and the way in which film has inspired or influenced some of the most important works of literature produced over the last century. Prerequisite: FCO 105
