Shakespeare: The Two Traditions

Front Cover
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1999 - Drama - 271 pages
The two traditions -- Shakespeare on stage and Shakespeare on film -- have experienced a midair collision with postmodernism. The purpose of Shakespeare is to examine recent productions of Shakespeare on stage and film and to lay out some interpretive guidelines for responding to the scripts as re-created in these two very different formats and within the conflicted environment of shifting critical paradigms. Illustrated.
