Product Description

Shakespeare: Script, Stage, Screenis the only Shakespeare textbook to combine an anthology of Shakespeare's plays with histories of their stage productions and analyses of the films. This textbook approaches Shakespeare's plays through the lens of interpretation, combining film theory, literary theory, and close readings of the texts to provide students with a scholarly yet accessible way to approach 14 of Shakespeare's most-often produced plays. Descriptions of key stage, film, and video interpretations, along with scrupulously edited and annotated play scripts, reinforce the belief that each staging-whether in the theater, on film, or for television-is an interpretation of the play, its point of view conditioned by the times, the medium, and the artist's vision. This innovative approach empowers students to develop their own critical interpretations and is especially well suited to today's students who respond readily to visual media.
