Comparative Poetics: Literature, Film and Culture

Narrative as constitutive criteria for comparison of literature and film as two types of cultural texts. Literary images, visual reading of literature, literary reading of the film, introduction to the basic aspects of film art in relation to literature: discourse, narrative, narrative/montage, space, time, events, description/personnel plan, a character in the novel/film, identity and image movement, perceptual, affective, acting picture (Gilles Deleuze), transformations resulting from the change of the medium and the procedure of production scenario, comparative interpretation and intertextual analysis, cultural contextualization of the literature as cultural phenomena. Implications of the body in the field of film/literature. The body as an agent and productive tool, as normative structure, body that is represented as an object, as a goal of policy interventions, body as a surface interpreted from two points of view, as an active agent and as a passive object of cultural actions, the body as an object of violent and traumatic experiences, the body as a subject and as an object of desire. The complexity of the sign in the two media are created with the participation of word, image, sound. Body/senses/mind, science, technology. Comparative interpretation and intertextual analysis.
