The 2020 Classic Literature On Film Blogathon has arrived! It’s my first blogathon as host and I hope you’re as excited as I am to read the wonderful contributions that will be made over the next three days.

As a reminder, the focus is on the great novels, short stories, plays and writers that have produced some of classic literatures greatest tales and how cinema has taken those stories and transformed them onto the silver screen. It is testimony to those stories that they have endured.

So without further ado, here are our contributions for Day One!
