This collection of criticism highlights the extent to which recent discussion of Shakespeare on film has drawn upon the theoretical perspectives of Marxism, feminism, psychoanalysis and post- modernism generating a radical reappraisal of a Shakespearean cinema. Ranging widely across the canon of Shakespeare films, from Max Reinhardt's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to Peter Greenaway's "Prospero's Books". The essays address the cultural politics of film adaptation from a variety of angles, offering readings of individual films, including "Hamlet", "Henry V" and "The Tempest", but also raising larger questions about the nature, purpose and future direction of Shakespearean cinema.
