Adaptation (DRA2111.01)

Sherry Kramer

Adaptation: A writer is a reader moved to imitation.

Appropriation, repurpose, pastiche, hybrid, sampling, remix, in conversation, mash up. Everyone knows that when you steal, steal from the best. When we write we may borrow the structure of a sonata, the plot from a story, the tang and tone of a novel, and characters from our own lives. Is everything we write adaptation? We will read 3-5 works of literature, watch movie and musical adaptations, adapt a fairy tale, a poem, a news item, an inanimate object, a song, and a short story.
