Deutschsprachige Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts im Medium Film: Eine Auswahl
Master of Arts
From the dawn of film history to today, film-adaption has generally been treated as the unfavored stepchild of the literary work upon which it is based. One reason for this bias is that film is seldom viewed as a free-standing work of art but rather as an off-shoot of its literary model. This perception is particularly true of German literary criticism. In this thesis I intend to study more closely the problems involved with film-adaption and to demonstrate on the basis of three examples that process of transforming a literary work into film can in fact be a fascinating construct of intermediality.
