Incisive, and covering a broad spectrum of Shakespeare films, "Shakespeare on Film" places each individual film in its cultural context and looks at its place in the canon of Shakespearean production as a whole.

  • A historical contextualising of the emergence, growth and developments of Shakespeare on film
  • Textual readings of a broad spectrum of Shakespeare films, from a range of critical perspectives A auteurist, historicist, reception studies
  • Examines questions of identity, taxonomy and labelling A in particular as they are raised by the extensive corpus of silent Shakespeare films, foreign language films and narrative spin-offs
  • Considers the place of Shakespeare as a cultural icon in contemporary culture, and the ways in which the screen has helped not only to reflect but to mould this product

"With its twenty-two high-resolution illustrations and on-the-spot introductions to its various parts, Shakespeare on Film represents an invigorating read and establishes a benchmark for subsequent inquiry." "This is a handy reference point for any student; it is also a cornucopia of scholarship for the dedicated critic." "Ramona Wray, Shakespeare Quarterly"
