Abstract:

"His name is William Shakespeare, and he is currently enjoying his most glorious and popular success since the golden days of the Globe Theatre - on Hollywood's silver screen. Here, in one volume, is a comprehensive and entertaining study of the many memorable film versions of Shakespeare's timeless plays. Arranged chronologically in the order the plays were written, this readable guide allows readers to follow Shakespaeare's development as a playwright (and screenwriter), and to compare the filmed versions of the plays side by side. From the cinematic thrills of Kenneth Branagh's star-studded movies to alternate adaptations like West Side Story to the recent blockbuster success of Shakespeare in Love, the book will delight film lovers and Bard fans alike."--Jacket.
