MacDonald, Gina and Andrew MacDonald. Jane Austen on Screen. Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 2003. 

Amazon.co.uk product description: ”This collection of essays explores the literary and cinematic implications of translating Austen's prose into film. It considers how prose fiction and cinema differ; how mass commercial audiences require changes to script and character; and how continually remade films evoke memories of earlier productions. The essays represent widely divergent perspectives, from literary "purists" suspicious of film renderings of Austen to film-makers who see the text as a stimulus for producing exceptional cinema. The comprehensive study will be of interest to students as well as teachers.”

 

Parill, Sue. Jane Austen on Film and Television: A Critical Study of the Adaptations. McFarland, 2002.

Amazon.co.uk product description: This book traces the history of film and television adaptations (nearly 30 to date) of Jane Austen manuscripts, compares the adaptations to the manuscripts, compares the way different adaptations treat the novels, and analyzes the adaptations as examples of cinematic art. The first of seven chapters explains why the novels of Jane Austen have become a popular source of film and television adaptations. The following six chapters each cover one of Austen's novels: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey. Each chapter begins with a summary of the main events of the novel. Then a history of the adaptations is presented followed by an analysis of the unique qualities of each adaptation, a comparison of these adaptations to each other and to the novels on which they are based, and a reflection of relevant film and literary criticism as it applies to the adaptations.

 

Pucci, Suzanne R. and James Thompson. Jane Austen and Co.: Remaking the Past in Contemporary Culture.  New York: State U of NY P, 2003.

From the Back Cover: "Jane Austen and Co. explores the ways in which classical novels-particularly, but not exclusively, those of Jane Austen-have been transformed into artifacts of contemporary popular culture. Examining recent films, television shows, Internet sites, and even historical tours, the book turns from the question of Austen's contemporary appeal to a broader consideration of other late-twentieth-century remakes, including Dangerous Liaisons, Dracula, Lolita, and even Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Taken together, the essays in Jane Austen and Co. offer a wide-ranging model for understanding how all of these texts-visual, literary, touristic, British, American, French-reshape the past in the new fashions, styles, media, and desires of the present."

Troost, Linda and Sayre Greenfield. Jane Austen in Hollywood.  Kentucky: U of Kentucky P, 2001.

From Booklist: ”This book has something for both the Austen scholar and the Austen enthusiast. The 13 essays expound on Austen's novels and how they have been adapted for film. The mostly feminist slants pursue themes such as place, voyeurism, class, and "Austen's ironic narrator." Although the different authors, and even the editors, vary on their opinions of the effectiveness of the many film adaptations, they are in agreement that Austen's work is easily accessible to modern-day audiences, but that the screenwriters undermine her strong, independent women and her obvious feminist ideals. Without being a conspicuous militant, Austen was the "velvet hammer" of the feminist movement. Whether from a discussion of the Emma character in Clueless or of the movies being "gateways" to the novels, Jane Austen in Hollywood evokes a feeling of nostalgia. If this collection doesn't inspire readers to pick up her books, then at least they will want to rent the movies.”

 

Wiltshire, John. Recreating Jane Austen.  Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 2001.

Amazon.co.uk product description:Recreating Jane Austen is a book for readers who know and love Austen's work. Stimulated by the recent crop of film and television versions of Austen's novels, John Wiltshire examines how her work has been "recreated" in another age and medium. Written in an engaging and readable style, this accessible study approaches the central question of the role Jane Austen plays in the contemporary cultural imagination.
