About this product
- DescriptionThe volume explores selected relations between visual and verbal aspects of film, drama, literature and biography. The chapters deal with such areas as film adaptations, remakes, ekphrasis, photography and the vel, feminist rewritings, acts of icoclasm in postcolonial drama, and biographical studies. Adopting a variety of methodologies, each of the contributors draws a link between the particular and the general, a text or a picture at hand and a mechanism that produces or annihilates meanings. Some big literary names surface in the book, most tably William Shakespeare and Henry James, but forgotten and marginalized writers and artists, such as old Irish poets, Wyndham Lewis, Stefan Themerson, feminist and postcolonial dramatists are also brought into the limelight.
