  • Product Description

Film adaptation of popular classics is a celebrated practice for the directors. The problem of being faithful to the exactness of the text is becoming a minor concern over the last few decades, especially since the 80''s. The present work investigates the aspect of supernatural return in Shakespearean tragedies and in Hamlet film adaptations. Apart from displaying the variety in supernatural return this work also focuses on the modern shift in the interpretation of supernatural entity – theological interpretation seems to have made room for the psychoanalytical reading of ghosts and apparitions. Another significant aspect that transpires from this research is the impact of individual reading of the texts on the screen adaptations. A critical eye on the interpretation as well as adaptations of Shakespearean texts will reveal the fact that directors'' biographical experience plays a pivotal role in shaping the aesthetic paradigms of the film adaptations. Hence this work provokes the reader-response approach of a text. By doing so, it advocates Roland Barthes'' “the death of an author” and creates the dynamics of interpretation from different textual points of view.
