Such films as Hamlet, Loves Labours Lost, Othello, Shakespeare in Love and William Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet, the contributors maintain, engage with some of the most pressing concerns of the present, apocalyptic condition - familial crisis, social estrangement, urban blight, cultural hybridity, literary authority, the impact of technology and the end of history. The volume includes an exclusive interview with Kenneth Branagh.
