Gender in Film Adaptations of the British Nineteenth-Century Novel is a major study of how women have been represented in film and television adaptations of British nineteeth-century novels. Exploring classics like Wuthering Heights (1939) and Jane Eyre (1944), this book shows how cultural anxieties about women shaped such adaptations in Britain and America during the Depression and after World War II, then going on to approach the more recent wave of adaptations in the 1990s.
