I'm gonna feel really dumb but I just can't think right now.

I'm writing a paper for my classic liturature as film class, and I'm trying to think of another way to say "source text," instead of just saying "source text" or "in Austen's novel."

I feel like I'm repeating myself a lot, but I find it hard to say "in the original" or similar because the essay is comparing two different film adaptations and that wording almost always ends up sounding like I'm referring to the "original" film adaptation, not the original story.
