Famous quotes by johns hopkins:

    An art whose limits depend on a moving image, mass audience, and industrial production is bound to differ from an art whose limits depend on language, a limited audience, and individual creation. In short, the filmed novel, in spite of certain resemblances, will inevitably become a different artistic entity from the novel on which it is based.
    George Bluestone, U.S. educator, critic. ‘The Limits of the Novel and the Limits of the Film,’ Novels Into Film, Johns Hopkins Press (1957)
