Review:

Striking the perfect balance between text and context, Corrigan’s volumes proves a wonderful tool for students as well as teachers.

Jan Baetens, Leuven Uni, Belgium

 

Corrigan’s Film and Literature offers an accessible history of the contentious intellectual relationship between literature and film as well as the often symbiotic history of their industrial relations. The selected readings cover an excellent range of influential, as well as cutting-edge, approaches to the area of study, and the concluding guide to writing about Film and Literature is a welcome addition.

Dr. Shelley Cobb, Southampton, UK

 

This text offers ‘the complete package’—containing history, theory, and praxis—for professors teaching courses in this growing field. Without a doubt, this will be the book I use for film and literature courses in the years to come.

Dr. Melissa Croteau, California Baptist University, USA

 

The Corrigan book admirably fulfills its roles as an overview on the subject and as an anthology of theoretical positions and critical approaches.

James Goodwin, University of California, USA

 

Corrigan’s lucid introduction to the phases of early cinema in respect of the intrinsic but often under-appreciated interface between literary and filmic forms of expression offers a concise, lucid and authoritative account of its genealogy and development.

Mike Ingham, Lingnan University, H.K.
