Visual Shakespeare: Essays in Film and Television
This definitive collection of Graham Holderness's writings on Shakespeare in film and television is a unique resource for the study of Shakespeare in the media. The fact that film and television versions of Shakespeare are now accepted as a standard element of Shakespeare studies is due in no small part to the work collected in this volume. It covers Shakespeare in television and film through case studies of Henry V, Taming of the Shrew, and Romeo and Juliet.
