Synopsis

Even in Hollywood s world of blockbusters and special effects, there continues to be interest in quieter adaptations based on the works of writers of other eras, especially the classic novels of nineteenth-century women. Those novels emphasize strong female protagonists, fine language, and sensitivity to social nuances. This volume s twelve essays offer critical insights not only into the visions of the novelist and the filmmaker but also into contemporary cultural concerns. The adaptations of novels by eight popular writers are analyzied: Mary Shelley, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Louisa May Alcott, Ouida, and George Eliot."
