Title: Filming Shakespeare, from metatheatre to metacinema (Peter Lang, 
2008)
by Agnieszka Rasmus

The volume offers a thoroughly researched and extensive survey of 
reflexivity in Shakespeare on screen, providing the reader with 
comprehensive and easily readable case studies of major and obscure 
productions from silent era to the present day. Topics include the 
ontology of the photographic image, the silent era, cinema as death, 
Hollywood, counter-cinema, ideology, film genre, and theatrical vs. 
cinematic illusion. Being well grounded in Shakespeare criticism as well 
as film theory and history, the essays are aimed at students, teachers, 
scholars, and enthusiasts of Shakespeare and film.

Contents: Shakespeare, adaptation, metatheatre, metacinema, reflexivity, 
silent film, Hollywood, counter-cinema, theatrical vs. cinematic space, 
illusion, alienation, spectator, film genre, ideology, cinema as death, 
soliloquies, asides, direct address, film-within-the-film, framing 
devices
