A Cinematic Translation of Ionel Teodoreanu's Lorelei
Creating a Film Script from a Classic Romanian Novel
Having earned his place in Romanian literary history with his consummate trilogy, "La Medeleni", Ionel Teodoreanu published "Lorelei" in 1935. His critics challenged the dense figurative style of Lorelei, thus it would not enjoy wide dissemination in translation. This study of the translation and adaptation of "Lorelei" argues that creative processes, both separately and collectively, earn value as primary and generative productions of literary and cinematic text.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"... Whether one knows anything of Teodoreanu, one is likely to be struck in reading Dr. Plantus-Runey's discussion by any number of fresh and often provocative perceptions about the nature of the work involved in rendering a fiction created in one language into another language..." - Dr. Brian McFarlane, Monash University"
