Description : This work of literary and film criticism examines all eight filmed adaptations of Jane Austen's "Emma "produced between 1948 and 1996 as vastly different interpretations of the source novel. Instead of condemning the movies and television specials as being -not as good as the book, - Marc DiPaolo considers how each adaptation might be understood as a valid -reading- of Austen's text. For example, he demonstrates how the Gwyneth Paltrow film "Emma" is both a romance and a female coming-of-age story, the 1972 BBC miniseries dramatizes Emma's world as claustrophobic and Emma herself as suffering from depression, and the modern-day teen comedy "Clueless" comes closest of all to bringing a feminist reading of the novel to the screen. Each version illuminates a different, legitimate way of reading the novel that is rewarding for Austen fans, scholars, and students alike."

Description : Enlightening biography of an early feminist and religious entrepreneur who championed the innate spirituality of women. Emma Curtis Hopkins led a life of extraordinary diversity and achievement. Here at last is a study that salutes her remarkable life as it explores the route by which she melded spiritual healing, metaphysical idealism, and exotic philosophies into multiple careers of unsurpassed dynamic. As a charismatic teacher, Hopkins instructed or ordained every prominent New Thought leader who founded a major denomination of the movement's churches. Her considerable talents as a mystic and noted author reached fruition with the publication of High Mysticism in 1923. Furthermore, her ideas on healing and prosperity took root in both secular and religious orgahizations, touching millions around the globe to this day. The long-forgotten Hopkins is now given her due in a book that allows her to triumph in the roles she so ably mastered in life: mentor and mystic, healer and feminist, missionary and biblical prophet, writer and editor.
