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

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 401 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 )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 327 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. The story of its production and reception - on both sides of the Atlantic - shows that it was also a significant contribution to the campaign to assert the British film industry's response to the dominance of Hollywood. The Romeo and Juliet films of Renato Castellani (1954) and Franco Zeffirelli (1968) embodied visions of Renaissance Italy that contrast - in differing ways - with MGM's film. This book offers readings of these significant and influential films that are informed by an understanding of the process of movie production and are backed up by extensive archival research, including studio documents, script revisions, publicity materials and reviews."--Jacket

A critical guide to Hamlet( Visual )

"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

Romeo and Juliet by Russell Jackson( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Jackson sees Romeo and Juliet as working through a series of dilemmas deriving their potency from how the vividness and poetic force of the characters is represented on stage. In Verona, the emphasis may be on elegance or violence, with the southern locale stressed, ignored, or radically deromanticized. The portrayal of the two households sets up the context for the ensuing action: how are the Capulets played? Why has the role of Mercurio become increasingly dark and sardonic? But crucially are the lovers played as adolescents or idealized? If the Juliet is convincingly youthful, has she also the technique to succeed in the role? How can an actor deal with Romeo's moody changeability? This masterful study opens out the wide range of interpretations offered by a much-loved and studied play."--BOOK JACKET
