A collection of critical and historical essays on the films adapted from, and inspired by, Shakespeare's plays. An international team of leading scholars consider specific issues such as the portrayal of Shakespeare's women and the supernatural. The emphasis is on feature films for cinema, rather than television, with strong coverage of Hamlet, Richard III, Macbeth, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet. A guide to further reading and a useful filmography are also included.
