No country for old men : from novel to film( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2005, Cormac McCarthy's novel, No Country for Old Men, was published to wide acclaim, and in 2007, Ethan and Joel Coen brought their adaptation of McCarthy's novel to the screen. The film earned praise from critics worldwide and was honored with four Academy Awards', including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. In No Country for Old Men: From Novel to Film, scholars offer varied approaches to both the novel and the award-winning film. Beginning with several essays dedicated entirely to the novel and its place within the McCarthy canon, the anthology offers subsequent essays focusing on the film, the adaptation process, and the Coen Brothers more broadly. The book also features an interview with the Coen brothers' long-time cinematographer Roger Deakins. This entertaining and enriching book for readers interested in the Coen Brothers' films and in McCarthy's fiction is an important contribution to both literature and film studies"--Provided by publisher
The encyclopedia of novels into film by John C Tibbetts( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For as long as there have been movies, filmmakers have labored to translate novelists' words into flickering images. From silent epics such as Birth of a Nation to contemporary blockbusters like Jurassic Park, directors have looked to literature for their inspiration. Now, The Encyclopedia of Novels into Film provides the first comprehensive look between the pages and behind the scenes of this long-standing cinematic tradition. More than 300 entries and 100 black-and-white movie stills and illustrations survey film adaptations of novels from Alice in Wonderland to Zorba the Greek with insightful commentary and in meticulous detail." "Each entry provides a profile of the source novel, summarizing the plot, major characters, important themes, and the literary significance of the work. A second profile encapsulates the various filmed adaptations, examining how the movie preserved or changed the elements of the book, why the changes occurred, how the director's or studio's vision differed from the author's, and how successful the movie was on its own merits." "A special appendix, The Novelist in Hollywood, offers a compelling exploration of the role of the writer in the movie industry as seen through the experiences of literary giants such as William Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald."--Jacket

Redefining adaptation studies( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since films were first produced, adapted works have predominantly borrowed primarily from traditional texts, such as novels and plays. Likewise, the study of film adaptations has also been fairly traditional, rarely venturing beyond a comparison of the source material to its often less revered counterpart. Redefining Adaptation Studies breaks new ground in showing the range of possibilities that transcend the literature/film paradigm. These essays focus on the idea of 'adaptation' and what it means in different socio-political contexts. Above all, this collection shows how cultural and political factors determine the meaning of the term and its potential for developing new approaches to learning. The contributors to this volume look at adaptation in different contexts and develop new ways to approach adaptation, not just as a literature-through-film issue but as something which can be used to develop other skills, such as creative writing and personal and social skills. Aimed at teachers in high schools and universities at the under- and postgraduate levels, this volume not only suggests how 'adaptation' might be used in different disciplines, but how it might improve the learning experience for teachers and students alike.--Back cover
