So says Professor Thomas Leitch (University of Delaware) in his brilliant introduction of the latest publication by Cambria Press, Victorian Literature and Film Adaptation, an insightful volume of edited essays that not only builds on major film theory and also on critical and theoretical work specifically about Victorian film and television adaptations, such as The English Novel and the Movies (1981), edited by Michael Klein and Gillian Parker, and Victorian Afterlife (2000), edited by John Kucich and Dianne Sadoff, but the book also expands the field to include source texts from the long nineteenth century, beginning with Jane Austen and ending with Joseph Conrad.
Editors Abigail Bloom and Mary Sanders Pollock also extend the boundaries set by other collections by including responses to movies based not just on novels, but also on drama (Lady Windemere’s Fan by Oscar Wilde), short stories (“The Return” by Joseph Conrad), and poetry (“The Pied Piper” by Robert Browning)—and not just on literary and popular culture canons, but on lesser known works.
Cambria Press will be providing a generous 30% discount to all MLA attendees and their libraries, so stop by the Cambria Press booth to pick up your coupon. This is valid only for direct orders to Cambria Press.
There will be a public lecture and this will be hosted by the president of Australia and New Zealand History of Education Society, Dr. Josephine May. The event will be launched by Professor Elizabeth Smyth of the University of Toronto.
Cambria Press‘s new e-book program effectively rides this growing trend (that is clearly here to stay) with the innovative distribution of two electronic versions of select Cambria Press titles on Amazon.com. Both versions are currently being deployed by Cambria Press––the first version is the full, complete e-book, and the second is the special abridged version, which is called the student edition and is priced in the incredibly affordable price range of $15 to $30. Learn more about these Cambria Press e-books at the Cambria Press website at http://www.cambriapress.com.
Cambria Press remains that only academic publisher in the world that offers e-books in all popular formats.
