Adapted from the Original: Essays on the Value and Values of Works Remade for a New Medium

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


Critics and audiences often judge films, books and other media as "great" -but what does that really mean?

This collection of new essays examines the various criteria by which degrees of greatness (or not-so) are constructed-whether by personal, political or social standards-through topics in cinema, literature and adaptation. The contributors recognize how issues of value vary across different cultures, and explore what those differences say about cultural attitudes and beliefs.
