Breaks New Ground

Linda Hutcheon boldly asks: "Are we living in the age of adaptation?" As a cultural practice that cuts across cultures and times, adaptation should, as the wonderful book teaches us, be understood not simply in relation to the "original" but as an art form itself. It's time to go beyond novels and films when thinking about adaptations.

A New Age of Adaptation

This is a great book. Hutcheon examines what adaptation has been reduced to in our society and puts forth a series of arguments to show her reader what Adaptation could be if given the chance. If you're considering writing a adaptation of any kind, you should consult this text for a really good place to start.
