From Words to Images —“Falsification” of Sense

Mihaela Gabriela Păun
Abstract—The study “From words to images–‘falsification’of sense” is an application of literature field, literature and film in particular. It analyses the short story “The snake”, by Mircea Eliade, in the film adaptation of Viorel Sergovici, Romanian director. In an era which prefers image to the written text, the transfer of it in images implies a high difficulty. Mircea Eliade is better known internationally as a historic of religions, more than as a writer of fantastic literature. The study focuses on “sense” and uses semiotic analysis and semantics as methods. The result is that even if fantasy, or better said fantastic, is fully developed in the written text, in filmography is rather redefined, because Mythology is born and lives through written words, but dies in image.

Index Terms—Film adaptation, image, message, literary text.
