From the Publisher"Tom Cartelli and Katherine Rowe are outstanding guides to thefascinating (and often daunting) cinematic world of ‘New WaveShakespeare.’ Rich in insight and elegantly argued, this isby far the best book I’ve read about Shakespeare on film."
James Shapiro, Columbia University, author of 1599:A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
"In case anyone thought the tide was ebbing on Shakespeare andfilm, here are Cartelli and Rowe riding the ‘new wave’like pro surfers. As brilliant as film analysts as in theirunderstanding of Shakespeare and his current cultural contexts,they are expert guides to a fascinating range of film adaptationsand to subtle and provocative ways of thinking about the motive toadapt Shakespeare, about the strategies these films use, and aboutthe theoretical models we can use to understand them. I learnedmuch from every chapter – and so will my students as theyengage in my courses with all that this book so clearly andhelpfully encourages them to consider."
Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame
"Though now well established as an important branch ofShakespeare research and instruction, the study of Shakespeare onfilm has to keep moving to keep abreast of technological change,fresh talent and new audiences. By focusing on work that iscontemporary, innovative and experimental, Cartelli and Rowe shiftthe paradigms of Shakespeare on film, and facilitate newinteractions between critical, cultural, textual and mediastudies."
Graham Holderness, University of Hertfordshire, authorof Visual Shakespeare
