Novel into Film: The Sheltering Sky
What is adaptation? What are its requirements and constraints? Its powers and limitations? How and to what degree can it reproduce the perspective, sense of reality, method, and purpose of the original -- not only the plot (or equivalent) and themes, but the arguments and deep causality? In class discussion, grounded and warranted answers to these and other questions will lead to complementary interpretations and judgments.
