Abstract

In this chapter the author addresses the rewriting - cinematically - of the fairly tale, and the dialogue between the creative and the critical via a set of stylistic features and devices shared by two artistic modes: text and manipulated moving image. This is done by exploring how literary objects and figures, exemplified by Schulz's The Street of Crocodiles (1934), are interpreted by the Quay Brothers in their seminal puppet animation film Street of Crocodiles (1986) and given material form, becoming cinematic expressions of Schulz's anti-tale.
