This book is a tribute to H. G. Wells, his most famous novel, and those adaptations that have been inspired by it. For more than a hundred years, readers, listeners, and moviegoers have been tantalized by the prospect of an invasion from Mars. When H. G. Wells first published The War of the Worlds in 1898, his Victorian audience responded very enthusiastically to the depth and resonance of the work because it reflected their fears and anxieties as they faced the turn of a new century. And while scenes of mass destruction and death are all too familiar to us in light of what happened on September 11, 2001, they were startlingly fresh and nightmarishly overpowering to those living in 1898. Thankfully, his Martian invasion was the stuff of fiction, not prophecy, and his invaders never arrived with their death rays, tripod machines, and poison gas. But that has not stopped his tale of interplanetary conflict from resonating with subsequent generations of people. From comic books to radio broadcasts, from movies and television to trading cards and record albums, the Martians keep coming back again...and again!

The volume takes as its starting point the assumption that adapters cannot simply "transpose" or transfer one particular text from one medium to another. They must interpret, re-work, and re-imagine the precursor text in order to choose the various meanings and sensations they find most compelling (or most cost-effective); then, they create scenes, characters, plot elements, etc., that match their interpretation. These very relationships are the subject matter this collection seeks to explore. Poststructural theory is an ideal place to begin a rigorous and theoretically sound investigation of adaptation. As adaptation studies adopts a poststructuralist lens and defines this richer notion of intertextuality, some of its key assumptions will change. Adaptation scholars will recognize that all film adaptations are intertextual by definition, multivocal by necessity, and adaptive by their nature --

Books in Motion addresses the hybrid, interstitial field of film adaptation. The introductory essay integrates a retrospective survey of the development of adaptation studies with a forceful argument about their centrality to any history of culture-any discussion, that is, of the transformation and transmission of texts and meanings in and across cultures. The thirteen especially composed essays that follow, organised into four sections headed 'Paradoxes of Fidelity', 'Authors, Auteurs, Adaptation', 'Contexts, Intertexts, Adaptation' and 'Beyond Adaptation', variously illustrate that claim by problematising the notion of fidelity, highlighting the role played by adaptation in relation to changing concepts of authorship and auteurism, exploring the extent to which the intelligibility of film adaptations is dependent on contextual and intertextual factors, and foregrounding the need to transcend any narrowly-defined concept of adaptation. Discussion ranges from adaptations of established classics like A Tale of Two Cities, Frankenstein, Henry V, Le temps retrouve, Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, 'The Dead' or Wuthering Heights, to contemporary (popular) texts/films like Bridget Jones's Diary, Fools, The Governess, High Fidelity, The Hours, The Orchid Thief/Adaptation, the work of Doris Dorrie, the first Harry Potter novel/film, or the adaptations made by Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Walt Disney. This book will appeal to both a specialised readership and to those accessing the dynamic field of adaptation studies for the first time. Mireia Aragay is Senior Lecturer in English literature and film at the University of Barcelona, Spain.
