This course questions the common argument made by book lovers everywhere that the book is always better than the film. English 280 introduces students to the basics of film adaptation theory, inviting them to see and evaluate literary texts and their adaptations as unique works of art that reflect the cultural values (and economic pressures) of their time. Students will read texts and view films from a variety of genres, learning how to analyze and discuss both literature and film in an informed manner.
