“This superb collection of essays takes the study of Shakespeare on film to a whole new level, telling us where the discipline has reached and where we can go from here. From problems of film-acting and gender to cross-culturalism and pixelvision, the book covers an enormous range of approaches as it considers the full gamut of Shakespeare films (old and new; good, bad and indifferent). It may be a ‘Concise Companion’ but there is nothing skimped here; instead, the collection is as rich and provocative as one could imagine and as exhilarating as the films themselves.” Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame
“The essays are superbly interwoven with the overall structure of the volume. The work presented in this volume is really impressive. It covers every necessary aspect needed to understand the discipline and completes what has been published so far opening new avenues for research. All that rethinking done in the past years has been appropriately summarized and expanded in this magnificent volume. It presents enough material to “keep making sense of our subject, and await the next viewing”. What more could one ask for? The careful reading of the essays included in this companion will elicit from us the wish to “continue to discern something meaningful”.”
Jorge Luis Bueno Alonso, University of Vigo, Sederi
"A serious and penetrating series of articles that supply dimensions we may not have been aware of and that enhance our understanding of the different Shakespeares we see on the screen … All libraries connected with cultural and media studies should have this book on their shelves."
