Wajdowskie adaptacje literatury w optyce Eweliny Nurczynskiej-Fidelskiej
WAJDA’S FILM ADAPTATIONS OF CLASSICS IN THE EYES OF EWELINA NURCZYŃSKA-FIDELSKA
Languages of publication
Przylipiak reviews the book Polish Literary Classics According to Andrzej Wajda by Ewelina Nurczyńska-Fidelska. This is the second, revised and updated edition of the book originally published in 1998. The book focuses on the question of film adaptation, and its main aim is to identify and describe Wajda’s method of film adaptation. Przylipiak notes that the level of analysis in the book is uneven. He considers the chapters where the author analyses specific changes of aesthetic forms and the ideological orientation that take place during the film adaptation process to be the best. The value of the book lies in that it deals with the much neglected question of equivalence, that is key in film adaptations.
