As a reader, I know I have watched many terrible movies based on books. Of course, I have enjoyed a select few. I feel like this class could give me an appreciation of adaptations. At the end of the semester, I will write a post with overall thoughts. Below is a list of the books I have to read, along with the movies I have to watch. The texts are the ones next to the numbers and the bulleted are the adaptations.
1) The Taming of the Shrew - William Shakespeare
- The Taming of the Shrew (1966)
- 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) (!!!)
- Romeo and Juliet (1968)
- Romeo + Juliet (1996)
- Atonement (1999)
- The Dark Knight (2008)
