ENG3140 From Fiction to Film
Credit Points: 15

The unit explores the development of the novel and its translation into film. It develops critical skills, while concentrating particularly on a close study of selected authors, whose novels have inspired film makers and actors to transcribe events and characters from the page to the screen.   Students also learn about the historical and social backgrounds of the authors and their fictional worlds as well as the cultural emphases of filmic versions.
