Abstract


This article is aimed at scrutinizing the ecranisation in the
transformation across genre, that is from novels to films, and vice
versa. It was found that the ecranisation process from novels to
films is a process envolving the reactualisation from the written
language to the audio visual language. The implication of that
process is that there are some efforts to shrink, add, or alter parts
of the story for various goals. Seen from the perspective of the
sociology of literature, this effort could initiate the low reading
motivation to the high watching motivation. In the context of
aesthetic idealism, ecranisation actually exposes an author’s
depression due to his lack of ability to articulate his audio visual
language in representing the written language. In contrast, films
has been de-ecranised into novels. An across genre transformation
process is thus made, that is from the audio visual tradition,
wrapped by advanced technology, to the reading-writing tradition.
The latter tradition phenomena is different from the former,
specifically in its perspective of the social function of literature.
Unfortunately, both cannot avoid the hegemony of industrialisation.
Literature and films are no more concerned with easthetic values.
Rather they mingle in industrialisation, in particular the
entertainment industry.
