Subject:        British Culture and Shakespeare

I'm curious as to the extent people believe WS has been perpetuated by
the film and cinema in the UK. The popularity of Shakespeare as a
symptom of cinematic influx cannot be denied in America. However, a case
can be made for the influence of film on Shakespeare in British popular
culture. Of course the extent to which film availability supercedes
access to theatrical productions is lessened in the UK. However, many
90s filmic adaptations have been rendered out of Europe, and contain the
likes of Jacobi, Geilgud, and Dench-who are lesser known in a broader
aspect throughout the states-yet very well known and ingrained in
British popular culture. Of course, much of this is ongoing debate and
study, but more towards the American side of the issue. Any thoughts?

Sincerely,
Jillian Tremblay
