"Raises a number of issues that are pertinent to the many debates that center around the translation of nineteenth-century fiction into film more generally...excellent essays..." Kate Flint, Studies in English Literature
"Jane Austen on Screen might have accomplished the difficult task of juggling film, literature, and feminism with greater success." The Women's Review of Books
This collection of essays explores the literary and cinematic implications of translating Austen's prose into film. Contributors raise questions of how prose fiction and cinema differ, of how mass commercial audiences require changes to script and character, and of how continually remade films evoke memories of earlier productions. The essays represent widely divergent perspectives, from literary 'purists' suspicious of filmic renderings of Austen to film-makers who see the text as a stimulus for producing exceptional cinema. This comprehensive study will be of interest to students and teachers alike.
