Since the earlier twentieth century, literary genres have traveled across magnetic, wireless, and electronic planes. Literature may now be anything from acoustic poetry and oral performance to verbal-visual constellations in print and on screen, cinematic narratives, or electronic textualities that range from hypertext to Flash.
New technologies have left their imprint on literature as a paper-based medium, and vice versa. This volume explores the interactions between literature and screenbased media over the past three decades. How has literature turned to screen, how have screens undone the tyranny of the page as a medium of literature, and how have screens affected the page in literary writing? This volume answers these questions by uniquely integrating perspectives from digital literary studies, on the one hand, and film and literature studies, on the other.
"Page" and "screen" are familiar catchwords in both digital literary studies and film and literature studies. The contributors reassess literary practice at the edges of paper, electronic media, and film. They show how the emergence of a new medium in fact reinvigorates the book and the page as literary media, rather than signaling their impending death.
While previous studies in this field have been restricted to the digitization of literature alone, this volume shows the continuing relevance of film as a cultural medium for contemporary literature. Its integrative approach allows readers to situate current shifts within the literary field in a wider, long-term perspective.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A strong collection that is carefully organized around a clearly defined set of themes and interests. The volume poses questions of the always dynamic, transitional and 'feedback-looped' relationship between, on the one hand, paper and print-based forms, histories and archives; and, on the other, electronic media and textualities."----Simon Morgan Wortham, University of Portsmouth
"A state of the art book. Understanding the effects of the rapid changes from a print culture to a digital culture is of major importance these days."----J. Hillis Miller, University of California, Irvine
