Lisa Hopkins analyzes eight film adaptations which have taken either Shakespeare or Jane Austen - icons of Englishness - out of their original geographical or cultural context and transposed them to a new location, allowing for a powerful interrogation both of what these texts mean in the modern world, and of Englishness itself.
LISA HOPKINS is Professor of English at Sheffield Hallam University, UK, and co-editor of Shakespeare, the journal of the British Shakespeare Association. Her previous publications include Shakespeares The Tempest: The Relationship between Text and Film (2008) and Screening the Gothic (2005).
