(p.57) 3 Adaptation
Greek Tragedy on Screen

Pantelis Michelakis

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses some of the modes, models, and strategies of adaptation in operation within film narratives and within the critical discourses that surround them. These range from metaphors related to the authorial power of the film director to the textuality of the adapted text or the film itself, and the creative work involved in acting and spectating. The principal case study of this chapter is Jules Dassin's Dream of Passion, but other films complement the discussion through a closer look at the persistent allure of authenticity, nostalgia, and irony.

Keywords:   adaptation modes, adaptation strategies, authenticity, nostalgia, irony
