Jane Austen's Emma on Television: Study of a BBC Classic Serial.
This is an academic examination of the television serial based on classic literature, especially the BBC serials. The author looks at the sociological, economic and artistic background of the development of this television genre. She also looks deeply at how the serial is different from the novel based on semiotic theories, and specifically at Emma in terms of novel versus TV series. The series she is evaluating is the 1972 BBC Emma produced by John Glenister and dramatized by Denis Constanduros. Some light damage at the bottom of the spine cover, otherwise Very Good condition.
