This course explores “Shakespeare and film,” concentrating on the ranges of meaning provoked by the conjunction. We will be reading plays by Shakespeare, watching films and videos based on those plays, and considering problems and issues connected with the plays, the films, and the plays-as-films. We shall be looking at early as well as recent Shakespeare films (in English and in other languages) and at films that stick close to conventional conceptualizations of “Shakespeare” as well as films which move towards erasing Shakespeare. Transposing different forms of Shakespearean textualities (printed, theatrical) to cinema/video produces a phenomenon whose cultural meanings — meaning as Shakespeare and meaning as film — will be the subject of our investigations. Plays of the season will include Macbeth, King Lear, Twelfth Night, The Taming of the Shrew, Henry V as well as others. Screening lab required. Grade based on two papers (8-10 pages each, 60%); short responses (20%); attendance and participation (20%). Course pack, approximately $50.00.
