The field of academic research on Shakespeare and screen adaptations has been rapidly expanding over the past decades, and Cieślak’s interdisciplinary study provides a welcome critical addition. . . In a highly topical book, also considering the ongoing #MeToo debate, the author explores the tensions and negotiations between early modern attitudes towards gender and the way twenty-first century adaptations relate to those issues in terms of current gender politics. . . . With all the insightful analysis in her timely book, Cieślak has hopefully also provided an impetus for further research in this highly topical field.
