"For such a reader, this book offers a fresh and, at times, irreverent perspective on the complex interactions between film and literature...Glavin's collection lays a strong foundation upon which to build." Dickens Quarterly, Cara Lane, University of Washington

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Television and film, not libraries or scholarship, have made Charles Dickens the most important unread novelist in English. It is not merely that millions of people feel comfortable deploying the word 'Dickensian' to describe their own and others' lives, but that many more people who have never read Dickens know what Dickensian means. They know about Dickens because they have access to over a century of adaptations for the big and small screen. Because Dickens has proven to be the most easily adapted of major novelists, he has become, somewhat ironically, one of the foremost novelists in the English canon. This is ironic because it was just this capacity to entertain that once confined him to the margins of the 'great tradition' in fiction. Dickens on Screen is an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike. It provides an exhaustive filmography and is well illustrated. Seller Inventory # ABE9780521001243
