Victorian Literature and Film Adaptation

by Abigail Burnham Bloom and Mary Sanders Pollock


"One welcome feature of this book is its awareness of the role of adaptatations in teaching, whether in survey courses or more specialized classes, many of the essays here could be used productively in the classroom. ...This is a lively and engaging collection with much to offer Victorian studies." - Victorian Studies

"[The editors] chose film versions that if not literally faithful to the text of the Victorian novels at least manage to illuminate and augment their components. An impressive array of international scholars analyzes films extracted from works … The essays discuss 11 Victorian authors (those on Joseph Conrad, Jane Austen, and Bram Stoker are particularly interesting); topics range from queer theory to intertextuality and film praxis. Highly recommended.” – CHOICE
