Summary "Located at the intersection of Shakespeare studies, performance studies and cultural studies, Remaking Shakespeare addresses the question of how Shakespeare's plays affect and are affected by their environments as they are transposed into a variety of media, genres, cultures, geographical locations and historical moments. From American Sign Language translation, through Asian stage and screen appropriations, New Zealand soap opera, abandoned screenplays, politically inflected documentaries, conservative exam questions and scholarly editions, film soundtracks and radio programmes, to recent stage and screen performances in Britain and the United States, the wide range of 'remade' Shakespeares discussed in this volume bears witness to the vitality of Shakespeare in popular culture and academic discourse. Together, the essays raise issues that transcend the individual performances and texts they discuss, providing significant contributions to the fields of performance studies and postcolonial studies and tackling theoretical issues of adaptation and genre in practical terms."--BOOK JACKET
