Shakespeare and the Moving Image Summary


Shakespeare and the Moving Image: The Plays on Film and Television by Edited by Anthony Davies

Towards the end of the 1980s it looked as if television had displaced cinema as the photographic medium for bringing Shakespeare to the modern audience. In recent years there has been a renaissance of Shakespearian cinema, including Kenneth Branagh's Henry V and Much Ado About Nothing, Franco Zeffirelli's Hamlet, Peter Greenaway's Prospero's Books and Christine Edzard's As You Like It. In this volume a range of writers study the best known and most entertaining film, television and video versions of Shakespeare's plays. Particular attention is given to the work of Olivier, Zeffirelli and Kurosawa, and to the BBC Television series. In addition the volume includes a survey of previous scholarship and an invaluable filmography.

Shakespeare and the Moving Image Reviews


"Given the recent explosion of interest in Shakespeare on film, this strong collection (which includes Graham Holderness and Christopher McCullough's useful compendium of Shakespeare on film) offers an excellent and timely overview." SEL
"Anthony Davies and Stanley Wells have assembled something like a compact encyclopedia of Shakepeare on film and video. ...the critical review and bibliography in the introduction as well as individual articles make the volume the most useful source book for this area up to 1994." R. Thomas Simone, Shakespeare Quarterly
