Abstract and Keywords

The afterlife of Macbeth on screen has been lively and often brilliant, occasioning more than a century of adaptations, appropriations, and revivals around the world, across an array of broadcast, recorded, and networked media. Students, scholars and fans exploring this robust and diverse corpus face a number of obstacles to any attempt at generalization or a systematic survey. This chapter sketches key challenges to that analytic work and points to useful resources that might support it, surveying a handful of adaptation strategies that span global variations of Macbeth in multiple languages and periods. These provide fruitful signposts for further study, as new engagements with Macbeth proliferate across various media.

Keywords: Macbeth, screen, adaptation, media, history
