Description - A Concise Companion to Shakespeare on Screen by Diana E. Henderson
This Concise Companion presents a multidisciplinary range of approaches to a vast multimedia subject, Shakespeare on screen. The book's contributors use the latest thinking from cultural studies, communications, and comparative media, in dialogue with literary, theatrical and filmic approaches, in order to push the field forwards. They consider Shakespeare on screen not only as a set of finished products but as a process. For this reason, the volume is organised around themes such as authorship and collaboration, theatricality, sex and violence, globalization, and history. The Concise Companion offers readers a variety of accessible routes into Shakespeare on screen and supports further study of the subject through the inclusion of a bibliography, a filmography, a chronology, and a thorough index. At the same time, it serves as a focal point for exploring fundamental topics in the study of literature and culture more broadly, such as the relationships between elite and popular culture, art and the marketplace, text, and image.
