About the Authors
  • The second volume in the re-launched series Shakespeare on Screen is devoted to The Tempest and Shakespeare's late romances, offering up-to-date coverage of recent screen versions as well as new critical reviews of older, canonical films. An international cast of authors explores not only productions from the USA and the UK, but also translations, adaptations and appropriations from Poland, Italy and France. Spanning a wide chronological range, from the first cinematic interpretation of Cymbeline in 1913 to The Royal Ballet's live broadcast of The Winter's Tale in 2014, the volume provides an extensive treatment of the plays' resonance for contemporary audiences. Supported by a film-bibliography, numerous illustrations and free online resources, the book will be an invaluable resource for students, scholars and teachers of film studies and Shakespeare studies.

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… Hatchuel and Vienne-Guerrin's volume offers a variety of effectively overlapping essays in which specific plays - or in this case, groups of plays - are examined from different points of view. The comparative rarity of feature film and television versions of the plays discussed in this volume allows for … particularly effective cross-referencing from essay to essay on the well-known films …' Russell Jackson, Shakespeare Survey
