The Cinematic Jane Austen: Essays on the Filmic Sensibility of the Novels.
First, the authors examine Austen's works in terms of their inherent cinematic qualities. They then treat the films as readings of the novels and deepen our understanding of how the films reinterpret the novels through stage setting, camera angles, use of light and sound, and of course screenplay. This is a brilliant book we highly recommend, both for the unique rereadings of the novels, and because the authors enhance our relationships with the film adaptations. McFarland & Co., 2009.
