Fitzgerald and Hemingway on film : a critical study of the adaptations, 1924-2013
|Format:||Print Book 2014|
|Availability:||Available at 1 Library 1 of 1 copy|
A comprehensive guide to all major film adaptations based on the novels of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, this is essential for scholars of American modernism and film studies. The author takes the approach that all visual and printed literature is born from a cycle of celebrity culture, in which authors continually create new works and reconstruct their personal images based on audience reception. The text includes two dozen reviews of individual films, from the silent era to present-day hits, such as Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby , as well as critical commentary from leading scholars of both modernist literature and film studies.
