    schema:description ""This introduction provides a broad overview of Lear on screen and offers some critical contexts for the chapters in this volume, highlighting their original contributions to the field. The volume comprises four sections. The first section, 'Surviving Lear', revisits the canon by offering new perspectives on productions that remain landmarks of screen history, continuing, through their afterlives in video and online archives, to influence more recent adaptations and appropriations, and invite new scholarly perspectives. The second section, 'Lear en abyme', considers the metatheatrical reframing of Lear generated through intersections of theater, screen and forms of 'liveness'. The chapters in the third section, 'The Genres of Lear', focus on what happens to Lear when Shakespeare's tragedy intersects with the codes of various filmic genres such as comedy, the Western or the road movie. The chapters of the final section, 'Lear on the loose', focus on the migration and appropriation processes that Lear has gone through and explore cases where Lear has wandered from the zone of adaptation into freer retellings and citations. Loosened from its moorings to the hypotext, Lear moves into new cultural contexts and geographical locations, creating new perspectives that nevertheless maintain dialogues with Shakespeare's text"--"@en ;
