Screen adaptations have long been a key component of the world’s film industries. Novels, novellas, short stories and plays have provided ample material for productions drawn to the commerciality of established writers and successful fiction. Anthem Studies in Writers and Film presents a series that brings together studies of writers – classical and contemporary – whose work has either been repeatedly adapted for film or whose fiction has had a significant screen impact albeit through a smaller number of productions. Each book in this series (approximately 50,000 words) includes an introduction to a single author, analysis of themes, motifs and structures within their fiction, and consideration of selected adaptations that demonstrate the writer’s appeal across time and/or cultures. Aimed toward scholars and students as well as the educated reader, the series publishes books that are innovative, engaging and highly accessible.
