From Fiction to Film: D.H. Lawrence's "The Rocking-Horse Winner"
From Fiction to Film DH Lawrence's The Rocking-Horse Winner Author:Gerald R. Barrett and Thomas L. Erskine From Fiction to Film is a new approach to the teaching of short stories, films, and the art of adaptation. By concentrating on the problems involved in transforming one medium of art to another, the student, we believe, will learn a great deal about both fiction and film. — The book begins with an introduction that presents the general problem o... more »f transforming fiction to film; it then provides the student with an opportunity to put his knowledge to work. A short story is reprinted and followed by relevant critical articles of varying approach and depth, so that the student can read the literary work and consider it from a number of diverse perspectives before he sees the film and reads the critical essays devoted to it. In order to facilitate comparisons and contrasts between the short story and the film, we have printed the final shooting script with notations treating significant changes between the script and the finished film. In this way, the student will not have to rely on memory, but can refer to the printed text of the film's sound and visuals. Critical comments on the film follow the final shooting script. Finally, the book contains suggested topics for themes and term papers. In fact, it may be used as a casebook since it includes the original pagination of the reprinted criticism.« less
