'Adaptation and Modernism'

Richard Hand

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This substantial study considers how adaptation was considered hackwork by writers such as Thomas Hardy and Henry James resulting in critical failures of adaptations of their works. His chapter, covering various forms of adaptation in the Modernist period, including drama, film and radio, reveals the vast extent of unchartered territory in adaptation studies and how the different media cross over and influence each other.
