9780198187066: Shakespeare and Modern Popular Culture (Oxford Shakespeare Topics)

Our notions of Shakespeare have been shaped partly by his diffuse presence in films, comics, television, popular novels, kitsch, and advertising. Through a series of case studies, Douglas Lanier examines how modern popular culture has appropriated and refashioned Shakespeare as a cultural icon.

Review:

An important addition to the series and a major contribution to Shakespeare studies, the first book that provides a general outline of how the playwright has been and continues to be used in popular culture, and what influence mass culture has in turn had on attitudes to him. * Around The Globe * In Lanier's hands we are made aware of how deeply ingrained Shakespeare has become in the world, and how popular culture continues to express split opinions about his importance and authority, simultaneously attracted to his usefulness and resistant to his dominance. * Around The Globe * In a short and readable book Lanier has broken new ground for the consideration of Shakespeare's status in contemporary culture, as well as providing rich and enjoyable material for further exploration. * Around The Globe * Lanier finds a multitude of strange and wonderful instances of how our culture uses Shakespeare. * Virginia Quarterly Review * This book would serve well as a primer to the subject of modern Shakespeare appropriation, perfect for upper-level undergraduates. * Virginia Quarterly Review * If you have not already seen this series [Oxford Shakespeare Topics], you must get to it now. It is reader-friendly and reliable. * Chronique * very accessible in their presentation of the material as well as easy and enjoyable to read ... Lanier's book is an important addition to the series and can be warmly recommended to both students, professionals and all those wanting to understand Shakespeare as a cultural icon. * Christa Jansohn, Anglistik *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Shakespeare and Superman? Shakespeare and The Twilight Zone? Shakespeare and romance novels? What is Shakespeare doing in modern popular culture? In the first book-length study to consider the modern Shakespop phenomenon broadly, Douglas Lanier examines how our conceptions of Shakespeare s works and his cultural status have been profoundly shapes by Shakespeare s diffuse presence in such popular forms as films, comic books, TV shows, mass-market fiction, children s books, kitsch, and advertising. Shakespeare and Modern Popular Culture offers an overview of issues raised in Shakespeare s appropriation in twentieth-century popular culture, amd argues that Shakespeare s appearances in these media can be seen as a form of cultural theorizing, a means by which popular culture thinks through its relationship to high culture. Through a series of case studies, the book examines how popular culture actively constructs, contests, uses, and perpetuates Shakespeare s cultural authority. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780198187066
