In this introduction to this special number of 'Dix-Neuf', we outline the significance of nineteenth-century French literature to both the industry and study of multimedia adaptation. In particular, we draw on key concepts and methodologies from the fields of adaptation studies, reception theory, and translation studies to trace and explore the ways in which writing from this period both concerns itself with questions of artistic adaptation and finds itself reimagined in new forms across a variety of media, era, and cultures.
