Through lively discussion and debate, we all learn more. Such learning is the most fundamental aim of the Concise Companion. In keeping with the recent wave of spinoffs and parodies as well as more “traditional” encounters between Shakespeare and visually based media, these essays move the scholarly field outward as well as onward: they suggest a variety of fruitful ways to locate the Shakespearean subset of screen representations within wider historical, political, artistic, economic, and technological contexts.

Such films as Get Over It (2001, loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream), O (2001, based on Othello), 10 Things I Hate About You (1999, based on The Taming of the Shrew), and Never Been Kissed (1999, loosely based on As You Like It) are witty adaptations in which the nostalgic desire to get back to Shakespeare is not obviously played out (see LANIER). Indeed, the Shakespearean sources are seldom mentioned in their promotional material.
