About the Author

Yvonne Griggs is Lecturer in Media and Communications at the University of New England, Australia. She is the author of Screen Adaptations: Shakespeare's King Lear (2009).


Written in clear, accessible style with plenty of exercises for learners and educators to try out, Yvonne Griggs's book achieves a notable feat of combining theoretical rigour with an awareness of pedagogic possibilities ... Perhaps the best entry to date in Bloomsbury's series of books on adaptation studies, the Introduction to Adaptation Studies deserves to be adopted as an essential course text for any institution. * Journal of Adaptation in Film & Performance *
An accessible book that functions as a useful resource for classroom engagement, weaving theory, and pedagogic practice as each chapter finishes with a series of exercises that brings critical aspects of adaptation studies to the forefront. * English *
Griggs' textual readings are of exemplary quality and clarity throughout, easily followable even for readers unfamiliar with the texts under discussion ... The exercises are the most original and useful parts of the book ... A necessary addition to any library of texts on adaptation ... due to the ways in which it encourages readers to become active analysers and adapters of texts themselves. * Adaptation *
I was very impressed by the book - an excellent introduction to adaptation studies for undergraduate students. * Professor Deborah Wynne, University of Chester, UK *
A very useful and original introduction to the practice and theory of adaptation. I personally found the introduction and concluding exercises to be really inspiring when it came to the teaching of adaptations of Shakespeare. * Matthew Woodcock, University of East Anglia, UK *
This will be an excellent resource for a number of students who are looking at adaptation in illustration. * Jason Hirons, Plymouth College of Art, UK *
