Renowned literary scholar Linda Hutcheon explores the ubiquity of adaptations in all their various media incarnations and challenges their constant critical denigration. Adaptation, Hutcheon argues, has always been a central mode of the story-telling imagination and deserves to be studied in all its breadth and range as both a process (of creation and reception) and a product unto its own.
Persuasive and illuminating, A Theory of Adaptation is a bold rethinking of how adaptation works across all media and genres that may put an end to the age-old question of whether the book was better than the movie, or the opera, or the theme park.

Linda Hutcheon is Distinguished University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. Her many books include A Poetics of Postmodernism, The Politics of Postmodernism, Irony's Edge, and, most recently, Opera: Desire Disease, Death, which she co-wrote with her husband, Michael Hutcheon.Review:
"Linda Hutcheon's A Theory of Adaptation is abundantly welcome, especially in its explicit aim to theorise a field that has for too long been a refuge for those averse to theoretical self-reflection. Hutcheonâ€™s book is genuinely innovative in its structure....A Theory of Adaptation should give the study of adaptation a new lease of intellectual life..." --Global Media Journal
