This introductory chapter first sets out the main question addressed by the book: given their fascination with the new medium of film, did American novelists attempt to apply cinematic methods in their own writings? It covers the period from the turn of the nineteenth century up to the Second World War, and then reviews studies on the application of cinematic approaches to American fiction, followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.
