Rather than focusing on whether the film is faithful to the literary source, the two works of art are regarded as separate entities and studied with particular emphasis on the individual media's individual storytelling techniques. During the course seminars, the different artistic approaches of the writers and directors are highlighted, interpreted and compared.
The course consists of 7.5 credits.
The teaching consists of lectures and film screenings with following seminars.
