The first decade of the new century has certainly been a busy one for diversity in Shakespearean performance and interpretation, yielding, for example, global, virtual, digital, interactive, televisual, and cinematic Shakespeares. In Locating Shakespeare in the Twenty-First Century, Gabrielle Malcolm and Kelli Marshall assess this active world of Shakespeare adaptation and commercialization as they consider both novel and traditional forms: from experimental presentations (in-person and online) and literal rewritings of the plays/playwright to televised and filmic Shakespeares. More specifically, contributors in Locating Shakespeare in the Twenty-First Century examine the BBC’s ShakespeaRE-Told series, Canada’s television program Slings and Arrows, the Mumbai-based film Maqbool, and graphic novels in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, as well as the future of adaptation, performance, digitization, and translation via such projects as National Theatre Live, the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Archive of Digital Performance, and the British Library’s online presentation of the complete Folios. Other authors consider the place of Shakespeare in the classroom, in the Kenneth Branagh canon, in Jewish revenge films (Quentin Tarantino’s included), in comic books, in Young Adult literature, and in episodes of the BBC’s popular sci-fi television program Doctor Who. Ultimately, this collection sheds light, at least partially, on where critics think Shakespeare is now and where he and his works might be going in the near future and long-term. One conclusion is certain: however far we progress into the new century, Shakespeare will be there.

Adaptations of canonical texts have played an important role throughout the history of children's literature and have been seen as an active and vital contributing force in establishing a common ground for intercultural communication across generations and borders. This collection analyses different examples of adapting canonical texts in or for children's literature encompassing adaptations of English classics for children and young adult readers and intercultural adaptations of children's classics across Europe. The international contributors assess both historical and transcultural adaptation in relation to historically and regionally contingent concepts of childhood. By assessing how texts move across age-specific or national borders, they examine the traces of a common literary and cultural heritage in European children's literature.

To Act, To Do, To Perform takes a line from Hamlet's gravedigger as a basis for a philosophical inquiry into how action is constituted by language, materiality, and performance. Drawing on contemporary theory from the fields of drama, aesthetics, literature, and cultural studies, Alice Rayner uses dramatic texts by Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Beckett to examine problems of action. When an agent or subject appears to have trouble negotiating between the name of an act and the practice of that act, a range of difficult issues in drama - such as the troubled relationships between object and process, text and performance, structure and play - become apparent. Each chapter of this book takes on those issues through examination of various dimensions of the phenomenon of action, and each examines a possible position for an agent or subject in relation to acts and action, as that position is revealed by a grammatical structure. The active/passive position of a subject is examined in Waiting for Godot, the difference between withdrawal from action and performance is discussed in relation to Three Sisters, and the visible or "demonic" element of the material act is analyzed through Macbeth. The final chapter on Hamlet examines the interplay of all these elements as action is shown to dismantle itself in performance even as it is being repeated. These analyses demonstrate the processes by which action intersects with its own dismantling in the performative present and indicate how ideas about both subjects and their acts are limited by language that divides subject from processes. To Act, To Do, To Perform is the first inclusive study of dramatic action since Francis Fergusson's The Idea of a Theater. This challenging and insightful book uses drama to elucidate philosophical questions and simultaneously demonstrates how drama offers something of its own to questions in literary theory and philosophy. The book will interest specialists as well as anyone intrigued by the recent popularity of "performance" as a critical and cultural metaphor.

You know, back in the day, Shakespeare wasn't considered elite. Oh sure, his plays were performed for royalty, but they were actually written for tradesmen, shopkeepers, average Joes, anybody who could pay a penny for a ticket. Mostly he wrote plays for the common man, using the language of the times. Times have changed. In Shakespeare for Slackers, not only do you get the original play written by William Shakespeare, but you also get what a few of us think he probably would have written if he were still around today. (And if he sat around watching a lot of television.) It's Shakespeare translated, retold, vandalized, brutalized, and outright demolished to suit the language of the times. Why? Because we can. The eBook version includes the threaded Slackers/Original, pure Slackers, and the glory of the original. The perfect companion for John Poulsen's: Shakespeare for Readers' Theatre.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, University of Tubingen, language: English, abstract: In the following, the original play will be compared to the film adaptations by Roman Polanski in 1971 and by Justin Kurzel in 2015. Additionally, the most important scenes and essential details in all three will be analyzed. Although technological progress affords humanity new possibilities in all sectors, be it communication systems, the news, education, bank transactions, or entertainment, it is inconceivable to dispense with books, letters or newspapers. Especially in the entertainment category, movies today are what novels were decades and centuries ago. They tell stories, history, sciences, etc. and like books they are grouped into various genres. By this observation they seem quite similar and the obvious difference is the textual information transfer of books compared to the audio-visual of movies. Not only “Macbeth”, but most of Shakespeare’s plays have been turned into films. His plays are surprisingly relevant in contemporary life and school. They are an integral component of general knowledge. The significance of “Macbeth” is obvious when you see how often it was reused. Already by 1908, the director Stuart Blackton produced the first film version of Shakespeare’s tragedy whereon many more followed, the best known by Welles, Kurosawa and Polanski. But how could these two famous directors transfer Shakespeare’s stage play into movies? Is the content adopted accurately or is it falsified? And what changes were accidentally or deliberately made?
