Formatted Abstract/Summary
Our intention in this book has been to bring together an innovative and varied range of approaches to, interpretations and uses of adaptation, and so challenge the assumption that an adaptation is simply a "re-make" or the transposition of text to screen. "Adaptation" names not only the means by which texts, cultures, and communities are transformed, but also the space in which that transformation takes place. This anthology highlights the processes of adaptation and transition rather than simply focusing on the relationship between beginning and end products. In identifying these pockets of change we hope to tunnel into new spaces, and open up new modes of analysis in this critical field.
