Cinema and Literature.
Eidsvik, Charles Vernon
The cinema stemmed from aesthetic and formal quests within printed literature, and restored to literature the traditions of performance which had been submerged by traditions of print. The literary identity of the cinema has been obscured by a lack of visible similarities between the cinema and modern writing. Differences between modern writing and the cinema stem partially from the main effect of the cinema on writers. They become more conscious of their medium, printed verbal language, and, in frequent instances, assimilated cinematic techniques and modes in their work. Though the cinema has changed the way we see literature, the consciousness of writers of their own medium makes influence impossible to measure accurately. The film is the ideal medium for criticism of new forms of literature because film can carry printed as well as other audio-visual information. (Author/DB)
