"The Disney Middle Ages: A Fairy-Tale and Fantasy Past examines the intersection between the products of the Walt Disney Company and popular culture's fascination with the Middle Ages. The Disney Middle Ages have come, for many, to figure as the Middle Ages, forming the earliest visions of the medieval past for much of the contemporary western (and increasingly eastern) imaginary. The Disney Middle Ages explores Disney's accounts of the Middle Ages and their political and cultural ramifications, analyzing how these re-creations of a fairy-tale history function in modern society"--

The term Old Time Radio refers to the relatively brief period from 1926, when the National Broadcasting Company first began network broadcasting, until approximately 1960, when television became the dominant communication medium in the United States. During this time, radio was as popular and ubiquitous as television is today. It was amazingly varied in the types of programming it offered; many characters and programs were so popular that virtually everyone was familiar with them. Even today, recorded versions of these programs are still extremely popular and widely available, both from commercial outlets and from hobbyists. Behind the production of these programs was a complex technological and financial infrastructure that had to be developed virtually from scratch in a world unaccustomed to the rapid communication and technological marvels that we take for granted today. The A to Z of Old Time Radio provides essential facts and information on the Golden Age of Radio. This is accomplished through the use of a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the radio networks, programs, directors, producers, writers, actors, radio series, and radio stations. Entries on your favorite shows The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Dragnet, and Suspense and actors Bob Hope, George Burns, Gracie Allen, and Edgar Bergen will have you jumping from one entry to the next as you relive old favorites and discover hidden treasures from the Golden Age of Radio."

Adaptation Theory and Criticism

Postmodern Literature and Cinema in the USA

Traditional critics of film adaptation generally assumed a) that the written text is better than the film adaptation because the plot is more intricate and the language richer when pictorial images do not intrude; b) that films are better when particularly faithful to the original; c) that authors do not make good script writers and should not sully their imagination by writing film scripts; d) and often that American films lack the complexity of authored texts because they are sourced out of Hollywood. The 'faithfulness' view has by and large disappeared, and intertextuality is now a generally received notion, but the field still lacks studies with a postmodern methodology and lens.Exploring Hollywood feature films as well as small studio productions, Adaptation Theory and Criticism explores the intertextuality of a dozen films through a series of case studies introduced through discussions of postmodern methodology and practice. Providing the reader with informative background on theories of film adaptation as well as carefully articulated postmodern methodology and issues, Gordon Slethaug includes several case studies of major Hollywood productions and small studio films, some of which have been discussed before (Age of Innocence, Gangs of New York, and Do the Right Thing) and some that have received lesser consideration (Six Degrees of Separation, Smoke, Smoke Signals, Broken Flowers, and various Snow White narratives including Enchanted, Mirror Mirror, and Snow White and the Huntsman). Useful for both film and literary studies students, Adaptation Theory and Criticism cogently combines the existing scholarship and uses previous theories to engage readers to think about the current state of American literature and film.

Das neue Dschungelbuch

"Das Dschungelbuch", englischer Originaltitel "The Jungle Book", ist eine Sammlung von Erzählungen und Gedichten des britischen Autors Rudyard Kipling. Der erste Band erschien 1894, der zweite 1895 unter dem Titel "The Second Jungle Book" ("Das zweite Dschungelbuch"); seither werden die Erzählungen der beiden Bände zumeist gemeinsam publiziert, oft als "The Jungle Books" ("Die Dschungelbücher"). Die bekanntesten Erzählungen darin handeln von Mowgli (in verschiedenen Übersetzungen auch Maugli oder Mogli geschrieben), einem Findelkind, das bei Tieren im indischen Dschungel aufwächst. Die Geschichten über Mowgli stehen dem Genre des Entwicklungsromans nahe, da sie Mowglis Erwachsenwerden und Bewusstwerdung vom verspielten Kind bis hin zum Herrn über die Tierwelt aufzeigen. Mowgli muss lernen, dass die Gesetze der Natur hart sind und ein hohes Maß von Verantwortung fordern. Im Kampf mit den Kräften der Natur, mit den Tieren und mit den Menschen reift das Kind zum selbstbewussten Jugendlichen. Trotz mancherlei kritischer Betrachtungen – man hat in der Darstellung der Charaktere und der Betonung des Gesetzes des Dschungels Kiplings positive Stellung zum Kolonialismus erblickt – ist die Bedeutung des Dschungelbuches auf die spätere literarische Entwicklung sowie seine Stellung als eines der bekanntesten und erfolgreichsten Jugendbücher der Welt kaum zu überschätzen.
