Summary
"Film technology has existed for more than a century, yet there has still been little consideration of its impact on literary culture. Literature and Visual Technologies seeks to redress this neglected area by considering the ways in which film has infiltrated and altered modern literary forms. Contributions from leading scholars trace the interaction of visual and literary cultures from the first shocked receptions of the 'movies' to the cross-contamination of textual and filmic forms in postmodern writing. The book provides new insights into the critical, institutional and theoretical mediation of film, as well as defining its significance in the work of key literary figures such as Joyce, H.D. Stein, Proust and Beckett."--Jacket.
