Example text

To return to Corliss' comment, they are a `possessive lot', the novels they have read and realized are rather like their own fully formed ®lm versions; it might even be argued that they have already, therefore, `seen the ®lm'. It must be noted that all readers do this to some extent and also that some novels may be much more `realizable' as a ®lm than others. For example, in her discussion of Gone with the Wind, Hawkins comments about the director, Selznick's, view of the original novel: From his ®rst reading .

Adaptations: not just the film of the book 37 When Kenneth Branagh directed Frankenstein he claimed to have gone back to the original text and so entitled the ®lm Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. This simple act of `reclaiming' provides an excellent focus for a class looking at concepts of adaptation and originality. g. the created but destructive monster, the inhuman/human and their varying representations through print, stage and screen. Pupils can search for texts themselves that offer a good `adaptation' and present them to classmates.

In other words, we should be teaching about adaptation as a process and helping pupils to understand it through both analytical study and practical work. Such an approach should develop, especially in older pupils, some understanding of the wider cultural and economic implications of adaptations in a global, electronic market (see Buckingham (1993a, 1993b)). Ultimately, the aim of such work is to go beyond an understanding of the process of adaptation to a critical position in which future citizens can re¯ect on the signi®cance of adaptation.
