Synopsis
Podcast from the Folger Shakespeare Library. Mark Thornton Burnett speaks on foreign-language film adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays. "To imitate Shakespeare or to use Shakespeare either on stage or in film is to take possession of a certain kind of idea of quality, to assume authority over what’s regarded as a work of art in order to define yourself as a practitioner and an artist," ... "Shakespeare is seen as the sort of litmus test for artistic accomplishment." Burnett is interviewed by Neva Grant.
