Shakespeare in mass media - particularly film, video, and television - is arguably the hottest, fastest growing research agenda in Shakespeare studies. Shakespeare after Mass Media provides students and scholars with the most comprehensive resource available on the market for studying the pop cultural afterlife of The Bard. From marketing to electronic Shakespeare, comics to romance novels, Star Trek to Branagh, radio and popular music to Bartlett's Quotations , the volume explores the contemporary cultural significance of Shakespeare in an unprecedently broad array of mass media contexts. With theoretical sophistication and accessible writing, it will be the ideal text for courses on Shakespeare and mass media.
