While I was preparing this book review, a friend of mine asked me what I was working on.

William Shakespeare (bapt. 26 April – 23 April ) was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "the Bard"). His extant works, including collaborations, consist of some 39 plays, sonnets, two long narrative Born: Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England. Breaking from traditional critiques of Shakespeare films based on either the aesthetics of the films or on a comparison between the film and source text, this new analysis of recent Shakespeare movies seeks to explain what makes such films commercial successes. Focusing particularly on three sub-genres—the teen Shakespeare film, the hybrid Shakespeare film, and the “faithful” adaptation.

  A new film is reviving an age-old controversy, and bashing The Bard. It portrays William Shakespeare as a fraud who didn't really write all those remarkable plays and sonnets bearing his byline. “Antony and Cleopatra is, in some ways, the most romantic of Shakespeare’s plays. It takes over, in a way, from Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet gives a wonderful exploration of young love, of first love, of romantic attitudes to love.
