Abstract

academic exercise, Donaldson-Evans usefully makes clear the very practical demands of this essentially commercial process, highlighting the way in which the receiving media, culture, audience and director shape the adaptation almost as much as Flaubert's own text. This volume will serve both as a highly-useful text book for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as offering key reading for researchers of adaptation. It is an intricate and engaging work which compares and contrasts specific adaptations of Flaubert whilst contributing, in an incisive manner, to broader debates on the process, practice and critical vocabulary of adaptation as an art form. Barnett, Marva A., ed. Victor Hugo on Things that Matter. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2010. Pp. xxiii + 491. isbn 978-0-300-12245-9 Katherine Lunn-Rockliffe, Hertford College, Oxford This substantial tome is a textbook consisting of a selection of short extracts from Hugo's immense oeuvre, presented with ample introductory material and annotations. The project of bringing Hugo's work to a wider audience is to be applauded, and the strength of the book lies in the sheer range of material sampled: political speeches, letters to lovers, and paintings are included as well as the more obvious poems and extracts from novels
