A Comparative Analysis of The Scarlet Letter from Fiction to Movie

Xin-yu ZHANG

Abstract


The Scarlet Letter (1850) has been repeatedly filmed. The 1995 film version directed by Roland Joffe caused great attention and controversy. On the basis of this version, this paper dealt with the comparative analysis of both the fiction and the movie. Theme, character portrait, imagery and language of the movie text had the fundamental change. This change not only makes the novel more influential, but makes people come to research on novel text more in-depth. This again shows the enduring charm of the literary classic.
