Summary

Shakespeare's plays have been adapted or rewritten in various, often surprising, ways since the seventeenth century. In this groundbreaking anthology, Fischlin and Fortier bring together twelve theatrical adaptations of Shakespeare's work from around the world and across the centuries. Each play is introduced by a concise, informative introduction with suggestions for further reading and a list of related adaptations for study. The collection is prefaced by a detailed introduction that offers an invaluable examination of issues related to the theatrical adaptation and rewriting of Shakespeare.
