Summary This article analyzes preconceptions about fidelity critisism in screen adaptation. It argues that the paragone, the ancient comparison and rivalry between the visual and verbal arts over-determined fidelity criticism. Also noted is the concept of intersection, an adaptation type distinguishable from a faithful transposition, introduction by professor Dudley Andrew. The translation and film adaptation of theatre is said to be adressed by professor Phyllis Zatlin. One source of differences arising from inter-medial translation is textual transfer.
