Autorschaft und Literaturgeschichte im Kino. Mit einer Filmographie 1909–2007
Aims and Scope
The first biopics of poets were shown in cinemas in the USA in 1909 and in Germany in 1912. Since these early beginnings, a constant and rich tradition has developed of biopics of figures from literary history. This study is the first to carry out a longitudinal and lateral study of the genre. "Poet films" as they are called not only provide differing notions of authorship, but they also help write a history of literature as narrated in film. A filmography furnishes information on 180 feature films with themes from the history of the West European and US literary canons.
