As a matter of fact, Igbo Scholars Forum was founded by Dr. Onukwube Alexander Alfred Anedo and Dr. Mrs. Ngozi Thecla Udemmadu (Nee Obiora) and born at the launching of a festschrift in honour of their life patron, Prof. Obed Muojekwu Anizoba (Ozonwa) on the 15th day of December, 2012. In his kind gesture, Prof O. M. Anizoba therefore established a website http://www.igboscholarsforum.com.ng for them to use in telling the world who the Igbo people are, about their life, what they believe in and their relationship with people and other cultures of the world outside theirs. Other journal outlets through which this Forum wants to let Igbo people and their culture out to the world are Ideal International Journal and Ekwe International Journal which is solely written only in Igbo language.

Deliberate Distortion and Misinformation in Movie Productions of Literary Works: A Study of Beowulf   Aloy Nnamdi Obika PhD Department Of English, Madonna University, Nigeria, Okija Campus, Anambra State. 08033820690 aloyobika@yahoo.com  & Uche Oboko, PhD Department Of English, Madonna University, Nigeria, Okija Campus, Anambra State. ucheoboko@yahoo.com   Abstract The tendency towards taking anything associated with the Information Communication Technology (ICT) to be modern, accurate, scholarly and enlightening is causing problems in the study of literature and language studies. This problem has so permeated scholarship that many classical texts on poetry and fiction have been dramatized and saved on compact discs (CDs). These plates being cheaply sold in the market are mostly bought and watched by students who then jettison the original texts which are in hard copies. They go so far as to look down on the few students who go back to the abandoned hard copies. For the present researchers to prove that this trend is inimical to academic enquiry and growth, they collected many versions of the Anglo-Saxon epic, Beowulf. Using ordinary random sampling, they selected just one since studying all the numerous copies obtained will not be possible in a paper of this nature. But as it is in Beowulf, so it is in many classic works of literature. On studying just one of them, and applying Formalism as the theoretical framework, the researchers discovered four sources of errors that make the ICT version to differ from the original texts. These sources are: errors due to interpolations by the producers, omissions of parts of the original text, alterations of the text and the impossibility of transposing a work of literature from one genre to another. Given the wide deviation between the ICT version and the original text the conclusion is that any student whose only knowledge of a text is based on the ICT version cannot be said to have seen and known the text. Finally, there is the urgent need for all teachers of literature to warn their students about the danger in relying on video versions of recommended texts. Keywords: Beowulf, Epic, Formalism, ICT, Language Introduction The craze about technology in our modern world conferred some superiority on anything that comes out of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) superhighway such that ideas expressed in the Internet or electronically disseminated are seen as not just current but scholarly. However, a critical study of some of the knowledge or literature electronically disseminated reveals the erroneous nature of this standpoint. An example of where such imperfection is glaring is in the aspect of rendering a literary work from one genre (poetry) to another (drama). This rendering is on the increase with some students jettisoning the printed copies of the texts and studying only the dramatized texts as they are in compact discs (CDs).                 With regard to the issue raised above, the experiences of the researchers illustrate what is currently in vogue. While teaching a group of students the Anglo-Saxon epic, Beowulf, one of the researchers discovered that almost half of the class had watched the dramatized epic poem in a video. On further enquiry, it was discovered that many classic works of literature have been dramatized and are being sold cheaply in the market. Among such works are: Homer’s Odyssey which is sold with its original title and the Iliad, which goes with the name Troy. Other reworked epic poems revolve round classical characters such as Hercules, Tristan and Isolde; the brothers Grimm and Alexander the Great. Other affected literary texts are Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Thomas Malory’s Morte d’Arthur which sells with the name Merlin,...
