  • Features a chapter on the Harry Potter franchise, as well as other contemporary perspectives
  • Showcases work by leading Shakespeare adaptation scholars
  • Explores fascinating topics such as ‘unfilmable’ texts
  • Includes detailed considerations of Ian McEwan’s Atonement and Conrad’s Heart of Darkness
