Shakespeare on Film, Paperback / softback Book


An approachable guide to Shakespeare on film, this book establishes the differences between stage and screen.

It covers the history of Shakespeare on the screen since 1899, and discusses various modes and conventions of adaptations.

Thoroughly updated to include the most recent films, for instance Joss Whedon's 2013 Much Ado About Nothing, it also explores the latest technology, such as DVD and Blu-ray, as well as live stage-to-screen productions.

It also includes an exclusive interview with filmmaker John Wyver, discussing his own adaptations for the small screen.
