Abstract

Since the birth of Shakespearean cinema in 1899, there have been close to 500 film adaptations of the Bard's work in which he has been taken to outer space, downtown Mumbai, and feudal Japan. Exploring this astonishing array from early cinema to the present, Shakespeare on Film: Such Things as Dreams are Made of analyzes Shakespearean cinema in four major contexts: performance, adaptation, film style, and popularization, interpreting his unique ability to penetrate cultures, mindsets, and languages across the world. The volume reveals Shakespeare's continuing currency in contemporary culture and critically examines the dialogues between cultures, mediums, and historical periods.
