ENG570: Page to Screen: Film Adaptations

Students read novels, short stories, essays, and plays and study their transformation into films.

Students read novels, short stories, essays, and plays and study their transformation into films. Through these comparisons and a short study of key film techniques and perspectives such as auteur theory, students learn how to "read" a film. The class chooses works such as A Clockwork Orange, Apocalypse Now, Atonement and Alice Munro's Runaway, among hundreds of possibilities. Paper topics emerge from the material read and viewed.
