9780393927658: Shakespeare and Film: A Norton Guide

A lively, concise introduction to film adaptations of Shakespeare's plays from the silent era to the present, Shakespeare and Film pays particular attention to the most influential directors' cinematic portrayals of the plays, offering insightful close readings of the elements of film―camera work, editing, music, acting, montage, among others―that students can use as models for their own writing and analysis.

The book also includes a glossary of film and critical terminology as well as annotated selected bibliographies and filmographies.

About the Author:

Samuel Crowl, Trustee Professor of English at Ohio University, has long been a major figure in Shakespeare and film. In Shakespeare and Film: A Norton Guide, Crowl brings his award-winning teaching to an undergraduate audience. The author of three previous books on Shakespeare and film―Shakespeare Observed (1992), Shakespeare at the Cineplex (2003), and The Films of Kenneth Branaugh (2006)―and numerous articles in leading journals, Crowl has recently been nominated to be a Trustee of the Shakespeare Association of America, and the Bookstall at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre bears his name.

Review:

“For teachers who have found their casual references to dolly shots and whip pans met with stupefied gazes, Shakespeare and Film will seem an answer to a pedagogical prayer.”
- Todd Borlick, Literature/Film Quarterly

“Crowl’s prose is pitched perfectly to the undergraduate ear: limpid, but not platitudinous, authoritative, yet never condescending.”
- Todd Borlick, Literature/Film Quarterly
