ENG 260 - Literature into Film


This course examines how selected works of written literature are translated into films. Discussions will focus on the difference imposed by the printed word and cinema in shaping the same material into two different artistic expressions. The course will investigate the adaptation of literary works such as Shakespeare’s Othello, Shelley’s Frankenstein, Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and Hammett’s Maltese Falcon or King’s “The Body.” Designed for non-majors, ENG 260 does not count toward the English major. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
