Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Hindle's Studying Shakespeare on Film is a storehouse of pedagogical resources and interpretive riches. At once encyclopedic in scope and finely textured in detail, this cinematically literate volume takes Shakespeare films seriously as films. It deftly shows students the way to do the same.
