Summary This volume maintains that film and literature are not entirely the different, opposing disciplines that they are held to be. The author demonstrates the relationship of film to literature, outlining the differences as well as similarities, and the common goals as well as the divergent aims of the two mediums, demonstrating how each form and its associated criticism is able to illuminate and enliven the other. A film consciousness sharpens the reader's alertness to the visual and aural qualities that mark much great writing, and literary training, in turn, adds depth and perspective to appreciation of film. He goes on to present some of the literary influences, such as the writings of Dickens and Flaubert, that have significantly affected film, and he discusses film's major influences on modern literature. The author concludes with an exploration of the relationship of film to poetry, suggesting that while the two forms have been concerned with similar thematic material and make use of similar techniques, film has dealt more significantly with the question of how to find a humane order in life.
