Topic #1: Original vs. Adaptation
Throughout the semester we have seen actors, interpreters, and poets bring our journeys to life, and often revive them for a contemporary popular audience. This paper prompt asks you to compare one of the original texts which we have read thus far on the syllabus with an adaptation of that text. The adaptation can be a film, drama, book, dance composition, work of visual art, etc. of your choosing. The following is not an exhaustive list of questions, but more so a line of questioning to facilitate an argument: How do the differences in medium, genre, intended audience, and the popular culture in which each was created produce different renditions of the journeys? What is lost in adaptation and what endures and why? Provide sufficient but not excessive detail for your reader to be able to note the similarities and differences between your chosen adaptation and your original text. Appendices with images/stills are also welcome.
