Title of the paper: “Much Ado About Nothing Adaptations, The Merchant of Venice Adaptations and A Midsummer Night’s Dream Adaptations”
Author or topic: William Shakespeare
This paper focuses on the comedies Much Ado About Nothing, The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, written by William Shakespeare, and their adaptations.
There have been many adaptations of these works, not only screen adaptations. Almost all of them have been made for television, film, videoclips, performances on stage, opera, printed adaptations such as comic, adapted versions for kids, teenagers, e-texts, musical adaptations… as we can read in the INTRODUCTION of this Second Paper.
I have divided the recollection of this large amount of information from the web in different sections (posts) such as WEBSITES , where we can see the magnitude of “Shakespeare Industry”. In other words, the importance and trascendence of William Shakespeare. Also, I have found some BLOGS that talk about Shakespeare and some adaptations on screen and stage. Two very interestings sections (posts) of this Second Paper are the posts about VIDEOS related on Much Ado About Nothing adaptations and the post dealing with MUSIC , where you can see some videos or listen to some archives in MP3 format. Finally, I have recollected a selection of very interesting PHOTOS from different adaptations on screen (film and television), on stage, opera, books, covers, posters…
Bringing to a close, I have written a CONCLUSION as a way of summary of this very interesting Secon Paper about Much Ado About Nothing adaptations, The Merchant of Venice adaptations and A Midsummer Night’s Dream adaptations”.
Notable (8), but I would like to get the best mark. I have worked very hard to do my best.
