  • Third Category Of Shakespeare Film
    1,557 words
    Categories of Shakespeare When dealing with text of Jacobean writers such as Shakespeare, one has a great deal of freedom in interpreting it. His words are full of not only meaning, but entendre's, alliterations, and metaphors that allows a great deal of artistic freedom when actualizing it into performance. Perhaps that is why his plays have been a longtime favorite standard performance material, and more recently (the past 100 years), have become very popular to produce and present in the film...

  • Shakespeare's A Midsummer
    432 words
    Michael Hoffman directed William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and it is an enchanting new version of Shakespeare's most magical comedy. It has dangerous potions, fairies and strange romances. It is a tale of a wondrous single night in which wicked spirits turn the world of love on its head. First I have to make it clear that I have never really thought much of A Midsummer Night's Dream. I have always considered it fairly frivolous and not too important in William Shakespeare's career....
  • Tempest And Prosperos Books
    649 words
    Review of Prosperos Books When adapting a play for the screen, a directors primary responsibility is to visualize an enactment that remains true to the original works perception. In addition to this task, the director must also build upon the foundations laid by the script; without this goal, (s) he would have no reason to have undertaken the project in the first place. Providing an innovative reading of a well-known play is undoubtedly a challenging task, but few directors have met the challeng...
  • Luhrmann's Film
    460 words
    William Shakespeare's 15th century play "Romeo & Juliet" has been recreated and turned into a film that has gained international prominence because of the wonderful direction by Baz Luhrmann. Unlike Shakespeare's play, Luhrmann's film has been tied into the modern era using a visual feast of fast cars, gunfights and passionate young love all set to a hip soundtrack. All these are great for high school students as it is set to a modern era that helps them relate to the film and to keep them focus...

Another character that had similar characteristics in the two films was Ariel. The two characters both played the role of a servant, however, there are some distingu...
  • Shakespeare's Text
    320 words
    I read Shakespeare's play 'Romeo and Juliet' in class and then watched Baz Luhrmann's film version in the cinema. There was no comparison! When I first read the text I found it quite difficult and turgid. I thought Shakespeare's opening was good with the jokes and the fighting and I really liked Mercutio's spell-binding 'Queen Mab's peach. I also felt truly sorry for Juliet who was alone and isolated for much of the play. However nothing prepared me for the movie! I was enthralled. Luhrmann's op...

    A Mid Summer Night's Dream Film Analysis Mid Summer Night's Dream Film Analysis A Mid Summer Night's Dream Film Analysis "A Mid summer Night's Dream' is another entry into Shakespeare's recent rebirth on film. Michael Hoffman's film dose not stay true to the text, but he must take liberties to allow for this classic story to be entertaining to today's audience. In this essay I will discuss the differences between the text vision and the film vision of this story from the historical setting, the ...
