This is the first comprehensive survey of approaches to genre in Shakespeare's work as represented in and accross a wide spectrum of media. The distinguished contributors from many disciplinary backgrounds probe deeply into genre theory and genre history by relating Renaissance conceptions of genre to contemporary ones, reading Shakespeare through genre and genre through Shakespeare. They include David Bevington, Samuel Crowl, David Crystal, Lawrence Danson, Peter Donaldson, Stephen Greenblatt, Andrew Gurr, Diana Henderson, Tony Howard, Douglas Lanier, Stephen Lynch, Alexander Huang, Charles Martindale, Boika Sokolova, and Alexander Shurbanov.

About the Author:

ANTHONY R. GUNERATNE teaches film, media, and audio-visual culture at Florida Atlantic University. He has published extensively on contemporary representations of the Renaissance and on the socio-cultural and aesthetic impact of modernity, postcoloniality, and globalization on literature, theatre, cinema, music, and the visual arts. He is the principal editor of Rethinking Third Cinema and has previously published Shakespeare, Film Studies, and the Visual Cultures of Modernity with Palgrave-Macmillan.

Review:

'Shakespeare and Genre focuses readers not only on the methods Shakespeare employed in approaching genre, but also on how our own generic conditioning influences our ability to describe and understand those methods. The line-up of contributors here is stunning. In bringing together scholars interested in how Shakespeare writes/adapts genres and how Shakespearean genres are conceived and re-adapted, this anthology performs work that simply has not been done before.' - Greg Semenza, professor, University of Connecticut

'Genre is an unavoidable topic for anyone interested in Shakespeare and is still one of the central issues in literary criticism. With the help of some of the most distinguished scholars in the fields of Shakespeare, linguistics, performance, film and media studies, Guneratne has produced an incisive, provocative and very rich book. Exploring the borderlands between aesthetic forms, Shakespeare and Genre is also a rare achievement because of its comprehensive approach, which allows the early modern to enter into illuminating dialogue with the postmodern.' - Jean-Christophe Mayer, Senior Research Fellow, French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS)
