Re: Tolkien vs. Jackson - trying to get back to Beowulf
- One reason that "Clueless" and "Red as Blood" work for me is that
they have *different titles* from the original works/legends. That
sets the author free to invent and the audience free to enjoy (or
not) without being constantly tripped up by unwelcome changes in
something that seems to purport to be a faithful adaptation.
Now I want to go track down the others Grace mentions. So many books
and films, so little time!
