9780195374674: True to the Spirit: Film Adaptation and the Question of Fidelity

Fifty percent of Hollywood productions each year are adaptations--films that use an already published book, dramatic work, or comic as their source material. If the original is well known, then for most spectators the question of whether these adaptations are "true to the spirit" of the original is central. The recent wave of adaptation studies dismisses the question of fidelity as irrelevant, mistaken, or an affront to the unstable nature of meaning itself. The essays gathered here, mixing the field's top authorities (Andrew, Gunning, Jameson, Mulvey, and Naremore) with fresh new voices, take the question of correspondence between source and adaptation as seriously as do producers and audiences. Spanning examples from Shakespeare to Ghost World, and addressing such notable directors as Welles, Kubrick, Hawks, Tarkovsky, and Ophuls, the contributors write against the grain of recent adaption studies by investigating the question of what fidelity might mean in its broadest and truest sense, what it might reveal of the adaptive process, and why it is still one of the richest veins of investigation in the study of cinema.

Review:


" It is not too much to say that this book is simply ground-breaking, easily and by far the best book on this important subject, and one that should be required reading of all film and literature students."--Lee Grieveson, University College London


"True to the Spirit revives adaptation as a key conceptual framework for understanding cinema's intricate political and aesthetic dialogues-and disagreements-with works in other media. This is a generous book: it addresses a surprising range of films and texts, and will foster the creativity of its readers through its expansive, historically detailed case studies." --Karla Oeler, Emory University

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Adaptation persists as a major area of inquiry in both film and literary studies. Over the past two decades, scholars have extended the debate well beyond George Bluestone s influential Novels into Film (1957) by taking into account such concerns as intertextuality and different forms of narrative enabled through new media. A dominant trend has been to dispense straight away with questions of fidelity and faithfulness, the assumption being that such views are naive, moralistic, and rooted in a cultural prejudice against the audiovisual. While acknowledging the merits of this position-namely its complication of the one-way page-to-screen perspective-this collection seeks to put the question of fidelity back into play. The essays explore the ways in which the newer, more sophisticated approaches can still accommodate forms of fidelity between two or more texts without having to reinscribe untenable distinctions between original and copy, and without having to argue from a strict media essentialist position that stages an impasse between linguistic and cinematic means of articulation.In addition, the scholars in this volume seek to recognize and account for fidelity s cultural currency among filmmakers and audiences alike, no matter how impossible fidelity might be in a literal sense. The selected essays offer an opportunity to showcase both well established adaptation scholars (Laura Mulvey, Dudley Andrew, Tom Gunning and James Naremore) and emerging voices in the field.
