FREN*4010 THE ART OF ADAPTION F16 (FREN*4010)
Term: Fall 2016
This course examines the relationship between source text and its adaptation(s). The art of adaptation will be addressed through theories of authorship, identity, intertextuality and genre. Students will reflect on the ways artistic creation is achieved by means of repetition and variation, and will analyse the forms and codes of the traditions that are inherited and often transgressed.
Prerequisite: 1.00 credits at the 3000-level in French.
