This essay tries to offer an overview of adaptation, an initiation into this subject for the educated reader who is not a communications or film specialist. The essay will reference "The Social and Cultural Construction of Abraham Lincoln in U.S. Movies and on U.S. TV”—but mainly with an eye to the larger issue of cinematographic adaptation itself.
