Introduction: Adaptation Considered as a Collaborative Art: Process and Practice
Springer International Publishing
The introductory chapter seeks to resituate imaginatively the process of adaptation, borrowing from the myth of Orpheus to do so. Rather than a Cronus-like conflict between original and offspring, adaptation is imagined as an elegiac conversation, back and forth between the worlds of the living and the dead, and a refusal of the pastness of objects lost in time. This exchange between interlocutors across or against time produces art and meaning in a contrapuntal meeting of voices in both eu- and dysphonia.
