Novels into Film by George Bluestone

Beginning with a discussion of the aesthetic limits of both the novel and the film, George Bluestone goes on to offer close readings of six films based on novels of serious literary merit— The InformerWuthering HeightsThe Grapes of WrathPride and PrejudiceThe Ox-Bow Incidentand Madame Bovary —focusing on the additions, deletions, and other changes made by the filmmakers in adapting the source material for the screen.

Based on both in-depth research into film archives and libraries and on interviews with the screenwriters, directors, and producers who worked on these films, Novels into Film concludes that because the novel lends itself to states of consciousness and the film to observed reality, the adaptation of one from the other produces a new and wholly autonomous art form.

The majority of the book is comprised of essays that entail close, formalistic readings of both the cinematic and literary text of the type that was de rigueur in academic studies in the first half of the twentieth century which is my diplomatic way saying that it’s good stuff that makes for dull reading.

Someday I will sit down and give it a thorough read though. Nov 29, Rachael rated it really liked it. Bluestone published this in the s, and it’s sort of the touchstone for everyone else–they either have to align themselves or work to refute his theories before they can advance their own.
