Title: Filming Shakespeare, from metatheatre to metacinema (Peter Lang,

reflexivity in Shakespeare on screen, providing the reader with
comprehensive and easily readable case studies of major and obscure

Hollywood, counter-cinema, ideology, film genre, and theatrical vs.

scholars, and enthusiasts of Shakespeare and film.
