Nobby's story has its roots way back. It's part of a bigger
historical picture and a longer story of hardship passed down from
one generation to another. This story continues today.
Ruby Langford Ginibi (from Haunted by the Past)

History breaks down into images, not into stories. Walter Benjamin

There is no word or image that is not haunted by history. Eduardo Cadava

Perhaps "imperative" seems too insistent a term to describe the spread of
contractual logic and rhetoric in the English 18th century; yet, the "will
to influence the behavior of another" is evident in 18th century
periodicals, conduct manuals and novels. Are there terms that better
describe this phenomena, or analyses that better illuminate it?

Adaptation: The State of the Field, Call for Papers

 

For the 2006 Popular Culture Association (PCA)/American Culture Association (ACA) conference in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, from April 12th to April 15th.

 

Adaptation: The State of the Field

 

It's likely that both literature and film owe a great deal more to the notion of adaptation than practitioners of either discipline are likely to admit. Bakhtin suggested that "European novel prose is born and shaped in the process of a free (that is reformulating) translation of others' works." Literary prose, and perhaps the very idea of literature, he suggests, was developed in an act of adaptation.
