Shakespeare Films

This study reexamines the recognized ""canon"" of films based on Shakespeare's plays, arguing that it should be broadened by breaking with two unnecessary standards: the characterization of the director as ""auteur"" of a play's screen adaptation, and with the convention of excluding films with contemporary language or modern or alternative settings or which use the play as a subtext. Emphasis is shifted from the director's contribution, to the film's social, cultural and historical contexts. The work of the auteurs is reevaluated within contemporary contexts, preserving the established canon while proposing new criteria for inclusion.
