A discussion on how meaning is enacted or re-created when a text is performed or adapted for a performance. A written comparison of a print text with the text's adaptation into film.

From the Paper:

"Cormac McCarthy's novel "All the Pretty Horses" examines in fine detail the maturing of a sixteen-year-old boy, John Grady Cole, as he travels through the scorched landscape of Mexico. Grady's quest to uphold the romantic ideals of "the Wild West" is beautifully illustrated through McCarthy's attention to detail in his writing. When comparing the delicacy McCarthy has taken to articulate his ideas, with Bill Bob Thornton's film representation of the same title, one can only feel utmost disappointed."
