Más allá de la adaptación

El reciclado de materiales temáticos del teatro áureo español en el cine

José Antonio Pérez Bowie    Universidad de Salamanca, España    



The relationship between cinema and literature is not limited to the phenomenon of adaptation: literary texts can be present on the screen through other channels that do not involve the complete transfer of textual contents but are limited to citing it, to take advantage of some of its thematic materials, to proceed to a thorough reordering of its elements, etc. This paper tries to classify and describe some of those ways through the analysis of some plays of the Spanish Golden Age that have served as basis for very different films but that cannot be qualified stricto sensu as adaptations due to interventions made on the original texts or the irrelevant presence of them in the final result.
