ENG 271 Film and Literature

Prerequisite: ENG 102  
3 credits

This interdisciplinary course explores what happens when works of literature, such as novels and plays, are adapted for the screen. In analyzing specific literature-to-film adaptation, class discussions focus upon elements common to both art forms (e.g., plot, character, point of view, symbolism and irony) as well as elements exclusive to each (e.g., visual images and music in film). Such discussions are intended to lead students to a deeper understanding of each art form and the interrelationships between them.
