Brings together for the first time a modern translation of the 19th century novella, a discussion of the literary and historical background to the story, an account of the making of Visconti's film, and an analysis of the film itself. It offers new information on both the print-text and the film-text, illuminating the creative genius of Camille Boito and Luchino Visconti. This is an original study in an increasingly important area of academic scrutiny -- the relationship between literature and film.
