The classic novel adaptation has long been regarded as a staple of "quality" television. Adaptation Revisited offers a critical reappraisal of this prolific and popular genre, as well as bringing new material into the broader field of Television Studies. The first part of the book surveys the more traditional discourses about adaptation, unearthing the unspoken assumptions and common misconceptions that underlie them. In the second half of the book, the author examines four major British serials: "Brideshead Revisited", "Pride and Prejudice", "Moll Flanders", and "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall".
