The search to find engaging and inspiring ways to introduce children and young adults to Shakespeare has resulted in a wide variety of approaches to producing and adapting Shakespeare's plays and the stories and characters at their heart. This book explores the range of productions, versions, and adaptations of Shakespeare aimed particularly at children or young people. It is the only comprehensive overview of its kind, engaging with a range of genres - drama, prose narrative, television and film - and including both British and international examples. Abigail Rokison covers stage and screen productions, shortened versions, prose narratives and picture books (including Manga), animations and original novels, plays and films rewriting Shakespeare. The book combines an informative guide to the productions and adaptations discussed with critical analysis of their relative strengths. It also has a practical focus including quotes from directors, actors, writers, teachers and young people who worked on or experienced the projects discussed.

Ideas in Profile: Small Introductions to Big Topics Shakespeare is the world's greatest writer. In this lively and authoritative introduction, Paul Edmondson presents Shakespeare afresh as a dramatist and poet, and encourages us to take ownership of the works for ourselves as words to be spoken as well as discussed. We get a wide sense of what his life was like, his rich language, and astonishing cultural legacy. We catch glimpses of Shakespeare himself, how he wrote and see what his works mean to readers and theatre practitioners. Above all, we see how Shakespeare tackled the biggest themes of humanity: power, history, war and love. Shakespeare scholar Paul Edmondson guides us through the most important questions around Shakespeare and in the process reminds us just why he is so celebrated in the first place.
