Deconstruction theory and its application in the study of improvement

Abstract

Developing and opposing structuralism at the same time, deconstruction theory came into world and stood as a landmark in literary criticism of the 20th century. Bakhtin’s dialoguism and polyphony, Kristeva’s intertextuality, Barthes’ idea of “Author’s Death”, Derrida’s idea of the reader’s power prepared the ground for deconstruction theory.

Ideas of deconstruction could be applied in adaptation studies. A film could be based on a certain novel, however, that did not mean that the filmmakers had to follow the writer’s concepts and ideas. Each person of the filmmaking production team could bring to their work his or her own concept, that make the film a new construction in comparison with its adapted novel.
