Jane Austen - Verfilmungen

GRIN Verlag, 2007 - 184 pàgines
Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Komparatistik, Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 2,0, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Komparatistik), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Seit der Durchsetzung des Tonfilms Anfang der 30er Jahre entstanden bisher über zwanzig Filmadaptationen von Jane Austens Romanen. 1940 wurde in Hollywood die erste Verfilmung ("Pride and Prejudice") produziert, die sowohl in Amerika als auch in Europa große Erfolge feiern durfte. Nach einigen Jahrzehnten der Ruhe folgten schließlich zwischen 1970 und 1986 die ersten britischen Antworten: sieben Fernseh-Filme und Mini-Serien, hauptsächlich von der BBC produziert. Das Interesse an Jane Austens Romanen und deren Adaptationsmöglichkeiten stieg weiterhin an, und so wurden allein zwischen 1995 und 1996 sechs weitere Filme produziert, davon drei aus Amerika, die restlichen aus England. Diese neue Welle von Adaptationen trug dazu bei, die Jane Austen-Kritik auf andere mediale Formen ausdehnen zu können. Drei dieser Produktionen erreichten einen hohen Grad an kommerziellem Erfolg: die BBC-A&E Miniserie "Pride and Prejudice" (September 1995, Davies/ Langton), die Mirage-Columbia Verfilmung "Sense and Sensibility" (Dezember 1995, Thompson/Lee) und die Miramax-Produktion "Emma" (Juli 1996, McGrath). Auch die eher ein jüngeres Publikum ansprechende, moderne Adaptation von Emma unter dem Titel "Clueless" (Juli 1995, Heckerling) von Paramount Pictures zeigte, dass Austens Roman "proves itself to be surprisingly malleable and readily adaptable to the contemporary period."5 Weitere Austen-Adaptationen, die nicht an dem Erfolg ihrer Vorgänger anschließen konnten, aber doch die positive Aufmerksamkeit der Kritiker auf sich zogen, waren die BBC-Verfilmung "Persuasion" (April 1995, Dear/Michell) und die Meridian-A&E Miniserie "Emma" (November 1996, Davies/Lawrence), die im britischen Fernsehen ausgestrahlt wurde. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, den

Pàgina 44 - Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.
Pàgina 34 - Mr Collins, to be sure, was neither sensible nor agreeable; his society was irksome, and his attachment to her must be imaginary. But still he would be her husband. Without thinking highly either of men or of matrimony, marriage had always been her object; it was the only honourable provision for well-educated young women of small fortune, and however uncertain of giving happiness, must be their pleasantest preservative from want.
Pàgina 24 - The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity ; for he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased...
Pàgina 57 - I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago.
Pàgina 40 - If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. You hear nothing but truth from me. I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it.
Pàgina 32 - ... having once loved her, but for loving her still well enough, to forgive all the petulance and acrimony of her manner in rejecting him, and all the unjust accusations accompanying her rejection. He who, she had been persuaded, would avoid her as his greatest enemy, seemed, on this accidental meeting, most eager to preserve the acquaintance, and without any indelicate display of regard, or any peculiarity of manner, where their two selves only were concerned, was soliciting the good opinion of...
Pàgina 23 - It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
Pàgina 61 - Anne, with an elegance of mind and sweetness of character, which must have placed her high with any people of real understanding, was nobody with either father or sister ; her word had no weight; her convenience was always to give way — she was only Anne.
Pàgina 39 - She would notice her; she would improve her; she would detach her from her bad acquaintance, and introduce her into good society; she would form her opinions and her manners. It would be an interesting and certainly a very kind undertaking; highly becoming her own situation in life, her leisure and powers.
Pàgina 15 - To be so bent on marriage, to pursue a man merely for the sake of situation, is a sort of thing that shocks me; I cannot understand it. Poverty is a great evil; but to a woman of education and feeling it ought not, it cannot be the greatest. I would rather be teacher at a school (and I can think of nothing worse) than marry a man I did not like.
