The critical relationship between books and film has been one of the key topics of cinema studies. Much of the discussion, however, has been inherited from eighteenth-century debates between poetry and painting and thus has fostered false and limiting paradigms in which words and pictures are opposed. This volume historicizes and critiques the central paradigms of the debate. Testing theory against practice, and uncovering the hidden agendas, Kamilla Elliott creates new critical models that can be applied in an effort to transform the field for future inquiry.

Review of the hardback: 'Painstaking research and elegant phrasing enable Elliott to execute with brilliance her self-assigned Herculean task: an attempt to reframe how words and images have been set against one another and to reveal in arduous detail how they have been confusingly labeled as both independent and interrelated. Rethinking the Novel/Film Debate is a tour de force, well worth recommending.' Cercles
