Overview

The Routledge new edition of this classic book functions as an accessible introduction to the history and theory of film and literature and also includes the key critical readings necessary for an understanding of this increasingly vibrant and popular area.

The new edition has been fully updated and is usefully separated into three sections: in the first Timothy Corrigan guides readers through the history of film and literature to the present; the second section has expanded to reprint forty key essays by leading theorists in the field including Andre Bazin, Linda Hutcheon and Robert Stam, as well as new essays by Timothy Corrigan and William Galperin; the third section brings the history and debates together offering a practical overview and useful case studies.

Including an annotated bibliography and glossary of critical terms, Film and Literature will fill a gap on many film and literature courses.
