Shakespeare and the English-speaking cinema by Russell Jackson( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare and the English-speaking Cinema is a lively, authoritative, and innovative overview of the ways in which Shakespeare's plays have been adapted for cinema. Organised by topics rather than chronology, it offers detailed commentary on significant films, including both "mainstream" and "canonical" works by such directors as Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, Franco Zeffirelli, and Kenneth Branagh, and such ground-breaking movies as Derek Jarman's The Tempest, Baz Luhrmann's William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet and Peter Greenaway's Prospero's Books. Chapters on the location of films in place and time, the effect of this on characterisation, and issues of gender and political power are followed by a discussion of work that goes "beyond Shakespeare." A filmography and suggestions for further reading complete this stimulating, fresh, and accessible account of an important aspect of Shakespeare studies." -- Publisher's description
Shakespeare films in the making : vision, production and reception by Russell Jackson( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shakespeare Films in the Making examines the production and reception of five feature-length Shakespeare films from the twentieth-century, focusing on the ways in which they articulate visions of their Shakespearean originals, of the fictional worlds in which the films are set, and of the movie-makers' own society. Two of the films - Warner Brothers' 1935 A Midsummer Night's Dream and MGM's 1936 Romeo and Juliet - were products of the Hollywood system and reflect the studios' desire to enhance their status with 'prestige pictures'. Oliver's 1944 Henry V was part of Britain's cultural war effort and embodies visions of the medieval past and ideal leadership

"Shakespeare's troubled character comes to life in this program in the capable hands of leading scholars, as they discuss the major themes of the play, its plot, and the actions of its main characters. Analyzing key scenes, scholars Russell Jackson and Stanley Wells of Stratford-upon-Avon offer insights into the underlying meaning of Hamlet's eloquent soliloquies, as well as the play's eight violent deaths, adultery, ghostly haunting, and ultimate tragic end. Death and revenge are explored as major themes of the work, as well as Shakespeare's playful inclusion of comedic relief. An analysis of Hamlet's relationships with his mother and Ophelia provides interesting insights into his multifaceted character."--Description provided by Films Media Group
