Jorgens (1977) paved the way for 10 Getting Back to Shakespeare fundamental shifts in Shakespeare-on-screen criticism. ” The preoccupation with “what gets lost” in the translation from stage-play to film has given way “to a more open and adventurous foray,” “discovering that which is unique and special about each movie” in both aesthetic and sociological terms (Rothwell 2001: 82–3). Recent writing considers the ideological and cultural work, the various realities that Shakespeare films represent: in Shakespeare, Cinema and Society (1989), John Collick provides a Marxist analysis of the social significance of films produced in Europe, Russia, and Japan; Shakespeare, Film, Fin de Siècle (2000), edited by Burnett and Wray, analyzes how Shakespeare films of the 1990s confront “millennial anxieties”; Shakespeare on Film (1998), edited by Shaughnessy, ranges from formalist analyses to Marxist, psychoanalytic, poststructuralist, feminist, and queer readings of diverse (popular and “arthouse”) films; Michael Anderegg (1999) provides a comprehensive, historical account of Orson Welles’ productions; Shakespeare the Movie (1997), edited by Boose and Burt, establishes cultural, industrial, and aesthetic contexts for the consideration of Shakespeare adapted to film, television, and video; Spectacular Shakespeare (2002), edited by Lehmann and Starks, considers their ideological resonance at the multiplex and in the classroom.

Dis)location has been the very stuff of intellectual and artistic debate – about media, about “modernity” – since the moving picture era began. Nevertheless, Burt’s remarks force me to refine my distinctions between, say, the Hollywood satire of Singin’ in the Rain (1952) and the metatheatricality of Baz Luhrmann’s “Red Curtain” trilogy: theoretical disagreement, in other words, may stimulate better readings and new comparisons. In addition to debating and combining methodologies, we should also bring new technical and statistical resources to bear upon our analyses: the rigorous combination of social science research with humanistic questions, for example, may help move us beyond the anecdotal and intuitive when discussing audience reception, ostensible standards 5 Diana E.
