Shakespeare, the movie, II: popularizing the plays on film, TV, video, and DVD

Burt, Richard, 1954-; Boose, Lynda E., 1943-

Following on from the successful 'Shakespeare, the Movie', this volume brings together an invaluable new collection of essays on cinematic Shakespeares in the 1990s and beyond. Combining three key essays from the earlier collection with new work from leading contributors, this volume offers 16 essays on cinematic Shakespeares in the 1990s and beyond. Shakespeare, The Movie II: focuses on the impact of post-colonialism, globalization and digital film on adaptations of Shakespeare; takes in not only American and British films but also adaptations of Shakespeare in Europe and in the Asian diapora; explores a wide range of film, television, video and DVD adaptations from Almereyda's Hamlet to animated tales, via Baz Luhrmann, Kenneth Branagh and 1990s' Macbeths, to name but a few; and offers fresh insight into the issues surrounding Shakespeare on film, such as the interplay between originals and adaptations, the appropriations of popular culture, the question of spectatorship, and the impact of popularization on the canonical status of the Bard
