Volume 7 Special Issue 1

Dear Readers and Contributors,

The field of ‘Literature & Film’ as a unity is still unexplored and has untapped potential. One way of understanding is the comparative analysis from the book to the film. The questions then are ‘which version is better’ and ‘what areas can be improved or included’ etc. We have come to understand the complexity of film as a mode of representation, a narrative and further, a discourse. The tools of interpretation and analysis applied to literature can also be applied to ‘Film’. Film is a text and hence the theories of literature plus the potential of generating its own unique theory coexist.

This is the first of many more series to come. We, at IJELLS would like to keep the proposition open to have one special issue on ‘Literature & Film’ every year.

Happy Reading!
