Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Filming Shakespeare in the Global Marketplace is dense and thoughtful, with analyses drawn from a broad theoretical framework that includes relevant work from across disciplinary boundaries... Burnett's book is highly successful in its attempt to investigate Shakespeare on screen... with an acute awareness of the complicated and contradictory role of cinema in the world economy today.' - Lisa S. Starks, Shakespeare Quarterly

'Offering the first full-length analysis of the relationship between Shakespearean film and globalization, Filming Shakespeare in the Global Marketplace is a singular achievement and an essential book for students, cinephiles, and a general audience. This first-rate study of Shakespeare's cultural influence in a world increasingly defined by corporatization and market values is indispensable for anyone seeking a sophisticated yet accessible understanding of Shakespeare's future on screen.' - Courtney Lehmann, University of the Pacific, California, USA
