This book critically examines the long established tradition of adapting classic novels to film or TV screen, encompassing novelists from Jane Austen to Michael Ondaatje. The early cinema ransacked literature for stories suitable for retelling in moving pictures, and as the art of the cinema matured, and cinematography, music, special effects and sound were improved, the art of dramatization began to produce high quality versions of respected novels. The authors in this book analyze a wide variety of literary dramatizations.

What is it that relates Austen and Trollope, Bronte and Dickens to Eliot, James, Hardy and Ford? How do novels like Pride and Prejudice and Barchester Towers and novels like Wuthering Heights and Great Expectations become part of Middlemarch, The Portrait of a Lady, Jude the Obscure and Parade's End? For Joseph Wiesenfarth, the relationships and connections are bound up in what he calls Gothic Manners. His argument is that the salient elements of two genres, that of the novel of manners and that of the new Gothic novel, come together and form a synthesis which accounts, in good part, for the greatness of classical English fiction.

The classic novel adaptation has long been regarded as a staple of "quality" television. Adaptation Revisited offers a critical reappraisal of this prolific and popular genre, as well as bringing new material into the broader field of Television Studies. The first part of the book surveys the more traditional discourses about adaptation, unearthing the unspoken assumptions and common misconceptions that underlie them. In the second half of the book, the author examines four major British serials: "Brideshead Revisited", "Pride and Prejudice", "Moll Flanders", and "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall".

“My favorite historical novel . . . a superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant.”—James M. McPherson In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable—the dramatic story of the battleground for America’s destiny. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory.

Toronto's Cabbagetown in the Depression...North America's largest Anglo-Saxon slum. Ken Tilling leaves school to face the bleak prospects of the dirty thirties-where do you go, what do you do, how do you make a life for yourself when all the world offers in unemployment, poverty and uncertainty? "As a social document, Cabbagetown is as important and revealing as either The Tin Flute or The Grapes of Wrath. Stern realism has also projected upon the pages of a whole gallery of types, lifelike and convincing. He is well fitted to hold the mirror up to human nature." Globe and Mail. Cabbagetown was first published in an abbreviated paperback edition in 1950 and was published in its entirety in 1968. This, the first quality paperback edition, contains the full unexpurgated text of Cabbagetown.

Villette: The Classic, Bestselling Charlotte Brontë Novel"No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us out of Heaven. She is a divine dew which the soul, on certain of its summer mornings, feels dropping upon it from the amaranth bloom and golden fruitage of Paradise." Charlotte Brontë's classic novel, Villette.
