The Visual and the Verbal in Film, Drama, Literature and Biography, Hardback Book

The Visual and the Verbal in Film, Drama, Literature and Biography Hardback

Edited by Miroslawa Buchholtz, Grzegorz Koneczniak

Part of the Dis/Continuities series


The 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 novel, feminist rewritings, acts of iconoclasm 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 notably 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.
