Filming Shakespeare in the Global Marketplace free pdf Shakespeare on film, whether at the cinema, on television or in an online environment, has established itself as an important cultural commentator. This study examines Shakespeare films produced on both sides of the millennium, identifying in them key global debates concerned with race and ethnicity, representation and reproduction, spirituality and religion, and the place of the new media. Traversing a range of examples, from multiplex features and art-house releases to teen-targeted entertainments and corporation advertisements, the volume argues that screen adaptations of the Bard are ever attuned to the times, responding variously to, even as they are shaped by, migrations of global capital, postmodern anxieties and the commodification of culture.Filming Shakespeare in the Global Marketplaceis supplemented in this paperback edition by a new preface that brings the study of the subject fully up-to-date and includes fresh insight into issues of content, ethics and disciplinary perspective.
