The Power of the Dog was first published in 1967 to rave reviews by The New York Times, but limited commercial success. It was reissued in 2001 by Little, Brown & Company, with a new afterword by Annie Proulx. In 2019, it was announced that Jane Campion would write and direct a film adaptation of the book, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst. The film won awards for Best Direction at the Venice International Film Festival, with anticipation that it will garner Oscar nominations in 2022.
