<< Recycling Culture. Ancient and Sacral Texts in (Post) Modern Literature and Art

Modern Literature and the Film-Making Industry

Veronika Julia Korner (Károli Gáspár Univerity of the Reformed Church, Budapest)



Putting contemporary (so called: "modern") literary masterpieces on the screen is a common phenomena in the 21th century film-making industry. Although it is worth considering, that texts of the E register literature remained still unadaptable for screen. A completely new (mostly popular) literary work, that has a consistent intertextual connection with the primary literary work is needed nowadays to make these modern texts into a film. In my lecture I will observe, how this contradiction works.
