The Cambridge Companion to Shakespeare on Film

Russell Jackson
Cambridge University Press, 2000 - 342 Seiten
This lively Companion is a collection of critical and historical essays on the films adapted from, and inspired by, Shakespeare's plays. Leading scholars discuss Shakespearean films from a variety of perspectives--as works of art in their own right, as products of the international movie industry, in relation to cinematic and theatrical genres, and as the work of particular directors from Laurence Olivier and Orson Welles to Franco Zeffirelli and Kenneth Branagh. The volume includes strong coverage of adaptations of Hamlet, Richard III, Macbeth, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet.
