Border Crossing

Frederick H. White

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter offers a comprehensive survey of Russian, American, British, French, German, and Italian films of Russian literature. It notes that regardless of national origin, such hypertexts always entail border crossings involving some combination of issues relating to language, culture, politics, society, and other topics, and that these crossings involve varying degrees of semantic shift. The broad survey aims to open up directions for future study of film transpositions of Russian literature, and new approaches to adaptation studies.

Keywords:   adaptation studies, border crossing, hypertexts, semantic
