A Companion to Literature and Film provides state-of-the-art research on world literature, film, and the complex theoretical relationship between them. Twenty-five essays by international experts cover the most important topics in the study of literature and film adaptations.

Contributors explore, in a highly innovative and groundbreaking way, important topics in the field. These include:

* Key issues such as dialogism, hidden intertextuality, and adaptation as readings, critiques, and rewritings of source novels

* Cultural concerns including iconophobia and the word/image wars

* Theoretical issues such as "transecriture" and "intermediality"

* Genre topics including "hagiopic" and the apocalyptic film

* The relationship with other media, including photography and painting

* Consideration of format, including seriality, and diverse source material

* Thematic subjects such as hetero-masculinity in The Talented Mr Ripley and libertinage in the work of Eric Rohmer.

The combination of theory and sophisticated readings of novels and adaptations adds up to a tour de force that reshapes and reconfigures the very field of literature and film studies.
