Anthony Davies, Stanley Wells, Professor of Shakespeare Studies and Director of the Shakespeare Institute Stanley Wells
Cambridge University Press, 1994 - 266 páginas
Toward the end of the 1980s it looked as if television had displaced film as the photographic medium for bringing Shakespeare to the modern audience. In recent years there has been a renaissance of Shakespearean film by directors such as Kenneth Branagh, Franco Zeffirelli, Peter Greenaway, and Christina Ezard. In this volume, a range of writers study the best known and most entertaining film, television and video versions of Shakespeare's plays, with particular attention given to the work of Olivier, Zeffirelli and Kurosawa, and to the BBC television series. The volume also includes a survey of previous scholarship and criticism as well as a comprehensive filmography.
