Shakespeare: Page, Stage and Screen HEN210

Introduction

This unit provides opportunity to study a selection of Shakespearean plays and their stage and screen performance afterlives. Starting from a close consideration of Shakespeare's dramatic language, the unit will consider the multiple possibilites the plays offer for realization in performance. Students will explore a range of issues associated with the development of Shakespeare's scripts for performance, such as the differences between stage and screen adaptation, the relationship between Shakespeare's language and the visual language of film, and the ways in which Shakespeare adaptations reflect changing cultural perspectives and preoccupations.
